RE: c240 rwd in snow???
Either have all-season, or winter tires, and have the traction control on. Having performance tires won't help at all, the tires that are nice and wide for the summer will turn you into a sled on a snowy road. The narrower the tire generally the better off you'll be too. Having a 4.5in wide tire as opposed to a 7+in wide tire will be better in the winter.
If the tires on the C240 are OEM, they should be all-season and less than 7" wide, I'd say just leave the traction control on, maybe turn on the snow traction and just drive carefully. Like with any car in snow, you have to plan your actions well in advance, expect delay in response. If you go into a turn too fast, you will slide. If you hit the gas to fast, you will go no where. And stopping quickly is pretty much out of a question.
