    I have a 2005 CLK 200, with 225/45R17 on the front and 245/40R17 on the rear. i would like to fir winter tyres, but cannot source the rear tyres. My local Mercedes can get me Dunlops, but the total cost would be over £900, which seems excessive. Apparently I could change the rear wheels, but not keen to do that. Are the rear tyres an unusual size ?, any advice would be most welcome. Thanks:)

    Go for Vredestein Wintrac Xtremes, 225/45x17 front & rear. I've used them on my CLK for years and nothing stops it in winter.
    Not many 245 sized winter tyres around.

    If you have the 8½" wheels on the rear you can fit the same as on the front 7½" wheels, that is within the limits

    I have just bought and fitted four £800 including fitting, balancing and delivery. I also bought four Alutec wheels. Both supplied by Tyremen.
