Sticking out might be good to somebody's taste, but than it might interfere with fender clearance. ML has tricky suspension. Most of the time the suspension don't sag enough to close the gap between top of the tire and fender, but under heavy load on road bumps it will.
I had the situation on ML55 where even with correct sizing -different brand tire was 10mm wider at the crown than OEM tire. Drove with it for 2 years just fine, till I hooked up a trailer with heavy tongue weight and than rubbing happen.
