    Hi all

    New rear tyre time

    Car wears a 285/30/19 as standard

    Could I put in slighter fatter rears ; a 295/30/19 and would this cause issues with speedo / ESP etc ?

    Regards

    Matt

    I'd go fatter, shouldn't be an issue. I ran 285 on my 911 and decided to put 315 on it and didn't effect it for the worse.

    When I bought my cls55 it was running 275 rears so I changed them to 285... the car didn't even notice in terms of esp issues

    285 on the rear is standard width for the CLS55

    Hi Lenny, I am running 295s on 20" wheels which are 10.5j wide and they are fine.
