Newbie Alert -- Yes, it's my first time...

My question has to do with getting ContactExtreme tires for my C230 Coupe. Continental doesn't carry 245/40/17, but they do carry a 255 width. As it turns out, the diameter actually matches better with the 255's than with the 245's.

Has anyone used the 255 width tires on the rear of their C230 coupe and what is your experience? If not, does anyone know how much room is left under the rear wheel wells with the 245's?

Anyway, thanks in advance for any info you can offer!

Cheers!

255 is the highest Tirerack states for a MB C230... However, I have had 275/35/18 on the rear!!! only because they were new tires and they would of just sat...Took them off for winter.
