Anyone know what the widest rear tire we can put on the SLK 300?

I've got 265/30/19's on the back of my 350. 9.5 wide. No issues with mine, but it's not a 300 either.

All R171's can fit the same tires. Rear: 18" max 265/35, 19" 275/30 just watch your ET values. And take into account that some tire brands tend to stand outside the rim. Be sure to get the correct rim width to go with the tire: 265/275 needs about 9.5.
