00' E320, 03' E320T, 05' C230K
Why is my stack of 235/45/17 half an inch shorter than the stack of 215/55/16? I measured with a straight edge across the top.
I've experienced this ever since I installed w211 staggered wheels onto my w210 the past 10 years. Once the Conti Sport Contacts wear down I may rethink the wheel/tire configuration. Fortunately I am an old school driver so much that I rarely use the cruise control given the traffic environment around me. My E320 is the only auto transmission vehicle I own so I'm just giddy being able to drive w/o shifting and having a burger in that hand.I'll tell you a little story my local MBCA Section heard from a dealer service manager years ago....
