C450, GLC43
Just got through a mini-snowstorm with stock Goodyear AS and 20" wheels in my GLC43. The Goodyear tires handled fine on packed snow and ice and powder on the side streets. I put about 100 miles on the clock with 100% of it spent driving on packed snow and ice on city streets with moderate grade. No super steep hills though.

Unless you're Canadian, Midwesterner, or live in the mountains, the 20" Goodyears will do just fine in the Winter. Of course the 21'' Summer tires are worthless on ice and should be rotated out for any 4 season climates.

Same wheels here (on a GLC43). After a ton of thought and research I put on "Pirelli Scorpion Winter" 265/40/21 front, 295/35/21 rear. Dealer recommended. The 10mm small size increase is necessary to get the tire. They are amazing. About 4k miles on them so far this season. Great handling and super quiet.

did the change in tire size alter your speedometer reading?

yes. but small - it will read 0.3mph slower than actual speed. So not really anything significant.
