Mandrus Rims / Tire Fitment

I just received a new set of Mandrus Mannheim 17 x 8 rims through my local DTD store. I am planning to order the tires separately. The MB tire fitment chart indicates a 245 45 17 for 17 x 8 rims on my 1996 SL. The Mandrus web site fitment chart indicates 265 40 17 for my car and the Mannheim rims. Can that be right? Those tires are 10.4 in. wide and designed for a nominal 9.5 in. rim. The 245 45 17 is designed for a nominal 8 in. rim.

I am not comfortable with that fitment, particularly on the front. In addition the.options for that tire size are extremely limited (DTD does not offer them based on the web site). Any insight you can provide would be appreciated.

Thank you for the post sed.

I'm not sure why their site lists the 265/40R-17 but this size is not recommended for your set-up. Like you noted, the 245/45R-17 tire size is ideal for the 17x8 Mannheim on your SL320.
