19" AMG Alloy wheels with all weather tires
Looking to buy a certified 2015 C300 4MATIC with 19" AMG Alloy wheels with Summer high performance Tires. I live in Chicago and worried about the snow in the winter.
Part of the certification process; they put only summer tires? I chatted with MB directly and gave them the VIN# and they said they dont recommend the all weather tires and only summer and winter tires. It simply wasn't designed for it. Tires are tested for approval with our vehicles to ensure optimal performance taking into consideration vehicle handling and ride quality.
Was wondering if it just the policy or it has something to do with performance and safety and if it will hurt the car? Is all weather tires for the 19" AMG safe and will not effect performance? Or will it have notable performance issues?
I know sometimes Factory only approved items are a stretch but wondering if this is one of these issues or truly something to avoid? I just dont want to buy winter and summer and keep changing them.
