Mercedes Benz Tires

Some vehicles use a staggered fitment (differently sized tires in the front and in the rear). Automotive manufacturers incorporate this design from the beginning to maximize performance. The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL550 is one such vehicle, and it features the following tire sizes: 275/30ZR-20 (rear) and 245/35ZR-20 (front). We installed the Continental ContiSportContact 2, excellent Mercedes Benz tires, to further enhance the performance that Mercedes-Benz built into this vehicle. Search our inventory of Mercedes tires by vehicle and we'll help you verify if your vehicle has a staggered fitment, and then we'll help you determine what tires will work best for you.

And if you'd like, we can even help you with Mercedes wheels. This SL550 features 20" O.Z. Ultraleggera HLT wheels, but there are many more options. Enter our Upgrade Garage to see what is available for your vehicle. (Literally—the Upgrade Garage allows you to "try on" different Mercedes rims so that you know exactly how they'd make your vehicle look.)

Kevin, the CLK 55 is recommended for use with staggered tires because the wheels are also staggered. --
