Tires

Can I change two new tires on the rear of my 2005 e320. The front tires are in really good shape. The question is should you only change all four?

Is it a 4wd / 4matic car?

You certainly don't want to change tire size/diameter..

It is 4matic, but just two new tires on back vs half wear on front. Same size though

Any answers to the tire question? Same size tires, just putting new ones on back and not front. 4 matic 2005 e320. The front are great still, but not new

It should be ok (if tires are within 3% in diameter). If it isn't, then the ESP light will come on. If that happens, just buy two more

Get the same brand and size tire as the front if possible.
