Dunno what others have used, and it depends how wide your new rims are etc, but I think 225/40/18 or 245/35/18 will have the correct rolling radius you need (based on 195/65/15 used by a standard C class)

225/40/18 on the front will be fine and 255/35/18 on the rear

this is the tried and tested sizes
