2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Winter Tires Have Arrived
February 15, 2013
Our winter tires have arrived and our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is one step closer to Mount Rushmore.
Yes, Mount Rushmore. Yes, the one in South Dakota. Don't ask me why.
Obviously the SLS's ultra-sticky Continental summer tires aren't meant for such northern conditions and would need to be replaced with winter tires if we had any chance of survival. So I ordered some from www.tirerack.com, a set of Pirelli's Winter Sottozero Serie II in the SLS's stock size: 265/35ZR19 front and 295/30ZR20 rear.
The plan is to get them mounted on the Mercedes over the next few days and hit the road north next Wednesday. Stay tuned.
