Winter tires for OEM wheels

I found OEM black 5 spoke wheels for my GTS. The wheels are 19x9 ET62mm and rear are 20x11ET68mm.

My dealer recommended 305/30R20XL for rear and 265/35R19 for front. The original tires are 295/30R20 in the rear. Does this sound right? Will the 305ís be too big?

This is is an expensive proposition. Almost 10k!!

not sure, itís going to be worth it

You could save many thousands by purchasing custom, but OEM sized, wheels by a company such as Signature. The OEM AMG wheels are a great wheel but so overpriced imho.

I opted for a 19 inch square set up to optimize cost and performance. I sold my GTS and selling my wheel + tire set here. MB World Listing
