Yes, MB dealers have an offer on now but you'll need to move quickly. For my E-Class the MB offer worked out circa £300 less than the best I could do online. YMMV and all that, though.Hitman999 said:Do Mercedes offer any deals?
A friend found out that it counts as a modification and actually cost extra on his premium, even though in theory (common sense?) they should reduce the premium.
Is it worth changing them?
Seems very expensive to get a set of winter wheels and tyres.
I am thinking its better to just stick Winter Tyres on the current alloys if the Winters are available in the sizes (which I am pretty sure they are).
Anyone recommend a particular tyre? I had Michelin Alpin PA3s on my BMW last winter.
If the tyre sizes are the same, you can put them on your existing wheels without a problem.
If they're slightly narrower then it should still be OK as OEM wheels are supplied with a little leeway either side, they're not sent from the factory fitted with either the narrowest or widest tyres for the wheel width - one size narrower should be fine.
That's what I did last year. Standard tyre is 245 wide on an 8.5j (inches wide) wheel. Winter tyre was 225 on same rim. This year I've bought narrower 7.5j (inches wide) wheels so the 225 winter tyre fits perfectly. It was fine before, just better now - and I don't need to go to tyre fitter to swap over.
