    Tire size question

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hi I have a 2009 GLK 280 4matic (x204) original tire size front 235/50/19 (28.3" diameter).
    Rear 255/45/19 (28.1" diameter).
    I am planning on replacing tires and thinking on going with 255/45/19 on the front and rear. Does anybody know if this will afect handling and wear on power stearing or any other part of suspension or drivetrain or am I safe

    The difference is going to be very minimal, you might experience a slightly harsher ride, but not enough to really notice.

    Hi Gabriel,
    Did you make this change? If yes, did you have any problems with the wider tires?
