Snow Tires for 2006 C230
I just purchased a C230 with RWD (yikes I'm scared). I have been looking for snow tires because where I live it snows a lot and since it's RWD I have no choice but to buy snow tires. I'm also new to the Mercedes/luxury car world so I'm completely lost.
My question is what tires are best, I have 2 different size tires 225/45/17 in the front and 245/40/17 for my rear tires. I can't find any tires with both of these sizes. I have been told also that I have to stick with these sizes and not get the same size all around or it will throw off the balance (again I don't know how legitimate this is) So please if anyone has ANY insight it would be GREATLY appreciated!! Also if anyone wants to lend any advice on how to drive in the snow that wold also be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
