What is winter in the place you live?
We had 60F and showers yesterday.
If you drive on snow you need M+S for sure

Check out tirerack. They can tell you which tires will fit. Just bought tires for my w163 yesterday. I wanted the Continental CrossConti's but they have been discontinued. Too bad. They were a good tire. I got 65K out of them.

The tires you've listed are FAR from your only "options" and and not the correct size for your car. The tires you have on now are.

2003 Mercedes-Benz ML500 Standard Tires | Michelin Tires
