The high tech car tyres will be fitted on both the A-Class and C-Class after Mercedes approved two sizes for each of the vehicle models.
As with products approved by Mercedes, they are marked with “MO” (Mercedes Original part) on the side wall, behind the size specification.
For the A-Class, AMG has approved the Continental car tyre with the dimension 235/35 ZR 19, and the tyres suitable for the C-Class also carry the dimension specification 235/35 ZR 19 and 255/30 ZR 19.
