C230 Kompressor Evolution Rear twitch over bumps

Hi guys, just joined the forum so hope you guys can help with a problem my gf has on a 2005 Merc c230 kompressor evolution she just bought.

Car has low km.... 70000km and upon driving the car has a rear twitch while going over bumps. Here is the possible culprit though. The tires on the back are only temporary because the rear original tires (245/40-17) were toast so for some reason the tires on the rear were mix matched due to what was available in the used inventory until the winters go on next week. The rear tires actually have two diff sizes but same brand.... one is 255/40-17 while the other is 235/45-17. Realize these need to be changed but in the interim, can anyone suggest reasons for the driving and rear twitch occurring in this car.... could it be the difference in width of the rear tires? Please let me know guys and appreciate all the help.
