I don't know the C300 rotors well enough, but in general, if the rotors are of two parts, with an outer friction surface and an inner carrier riveted inside it, the intent is to allow for thermal expansion of the friction part (which will get very hot under braking) without warping the rotor as a whole. The rotor itself will often be of a relatively low strength material like cast iron (relatively cheap, easy to cast internal ventilation / cooling ducts into, and also a very good friction material), whereas the inner part will be a higher strength steel alloy (to carry the load and reduce overall weight).
The only reason I can think of not to pick them up by the center is in case the rivets can't take the weight if you pick them up flat.

The car is currently...
I have a 350 rwd and it run terrible with the tire I have. I'm looking for uses winter tires but they don't have the 255/35/18. So I'm thinking about tire stretching but all new to this tire stretching. What winter size tires would fit the stretch.
I purchased a 2019 GLC 43 AMG. It came with 285x35xZR21 summer tires on the rear and 255x40xZR21 on the front.
