Mercedes Tires and Wheels

Thank you for the additional information and your continued patience.

The front fitment will be good to go I just recommend sticking with a tire brand that runs a little smaller in size. Tires are just like shoe sizes. Some brands run larger while others run smaller even in the same size.

As for the rear fitment, the 265/40-17 should work but this size is not recommended for your factory wheels. The approved rim width range for tire size 265/40-17 is 9" to 10.5". If you mount this on your factory 8.5" rear wheels, the tire will be pinched which can cause handling issues as well as premature wear. Worst case, tire failure. I recommend running a new set of wheels if you want to go with the wider tire size in the rear.
