Still overall not a bad deal.

I am not going with winter tires. We don't get the snow you get, GLK won't be a daily driver and will spend good part of winter a lot further South!

Anyone have any recoomendations for a roof top spare tire carrier. I found this one on-line. Thinking of something along these lines, mainly for long trips:

You are right. Just trying to come up with something just for long trips when we need the space inside the car.

Hitch mount is possibility, but I think it is only a 1 1/4" . We also have a hitch mounted bike rack.

Once I get car, I might look to see if tire mount could be added to bike rack, bu I suspect there may be too much side leverage on the hitch.

But if it is good enough for a Rolls, maybe it would be acceptable on a Benz too
