This is what you should have and the larger tires go on the larger wheels and of course go on the rear. Probably your owners manual says use same-size tires for snow tires and this is same as your summer fronts and means you need another pair of the smaller wheels.

I am using the exact sizes on monoblocks on my E class. Originally they come from C class.
