Widest Tire for ML550

Curious what the widest tire size is that anyone here has put on their ML550 ('12+). Mine has the 19" wheels stock - 255 width - and I am trying to confirm whether the car can fit up to 285s in the rear and, if so, if they make the stock 19" AMG wheel in a width that would accommodate that size tire.


Perhaps a more important question - Would upgrading only the rears hinder my 4Matic system?

With 4Matic all 4 wheels must have the same circumference.

You could fit the ML63 wheel and tire at least P295-35-R21 and even wider if you wish... I have seen with P335-20-22

Wow, really? 335?? I find that incredibly hard to believe. I wouldn't go beyond 295s since they'll have to be the same all around, but I'm thinking 285s may be more appropriate.


Appreciate the info
