GLC43 : 20" Wheels discontinued ??


Hi;
Am newish to this forum. I have a well specced GLC 43 on order in Edinburgh with delivery 1st week of April.
Car will be Obsidian Black, premium plus pack, Night pack, retractable tow bar (for bike rack) and various other driver assists.
It was also ordered with 20" wheels! However, within a week of order the dealer reverted to me that this size of wheel was no longer available from Mercedes and I should go to standard 19's or up to 21's.
Although I was reasonably prepared to go to 19", I did query as to why the configurator on Mercedes site was STILL showing 20" option !!
Mercedes Edinburgh sent me the attached picture of Mercedes factory delivery capabilities and as they said, the 20" wheels are "RED" all the way through.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Would guess it is something to do with the "crabbing" issue but 19's don't cure this , they are fitted to mine and it is a problem,, 21's are available with all weather tyres that lessen the issue.

Can you add your country/ location to your profile as it helps you get the correct info, different countries have different specs, in the US 20 inch wheels are standard.
