I don't think you can run that tire size in the front on the W208 chassis without some modifications (assuming the wheels have the proper offset). 225/40-18 would be correct all the way around, if you were going staggered the matching rear would be 255/35-18.

Handling in any case will be improved over the stock sizes (whether base 16 or upmodel 17) but the ride will be a bit harsher.
