    Some Tyre Queries.

    Does anyone have a definate answer to being able to fit 255's on the rear of a C55, do they rub at all? Also, what issues would be created by sticking as lower profile say a 35 on the fronts instead of a 40? Would it just knock the speedo out? If so by much? Cheers Terry
