    Hello


    My wife has a B class and we are thinking of driving to France in Febuary, hers will be better than mine I feel. Being FWD and thinner tyres...

    However I have seen these

    MERCEDES A & B CLASS 15" INCH X4 STEEL WHEELS IDEAL FOR WINTER SNOW TYRES | eBay

    in size
    15" X4 WHEELS 6.5J 5X112PCD
    My question... Currently her car gas 17" alloys with I think 205/50/17's

    Will the steels fit and what tyres would I need? something like a 185/60.15?

    Thanks

    Owners manual lists the correct winter tyre sizes for the car.

    ^ Thanks will look at that.

    I know a basic B class would have come with steels not sure they were 15" though?

    Will have a look.

    Was thinking exactly the same, was searching to see if they actually ever came with steel wheels.

    I've seen one for sale once with hubcaps, and they do have them abroad.

    Just not sure they were 15"

    The one I saw for sale was a Red 'Classic' spec with steels looked so so basic :(

    Would the make much difference?


    I will check the manual and see what it says...
