2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Winter Tires
February 12, 2013
I'm aching to road trip this car. And I will. But driving it around the warmth of the southwest just doesn't feel adventurous enough. I'm aching to take this drop-top supercar out of its element. Out of its natural environment. Out of sunny southern California.
Our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster needs some snow.
The plan is to drive north. Very north. South Dakota north. Mount Rushmore north. In February.
But the SLS's ultra-sticky Continental summer tires will need to be replaced if we're going to make it there and back alive. So I ordered some winter tires for the Benz from www.tirerack.com.
A quick search and a few clicks and we ordered a set of Pirelli's Winter Sottozero Serie II in the SLS's stock size: 265/35ZR19 front and 295/30ZR20 rear. We'll get them mounted a few days before we hit the road and we promise to keep you posted along the way.
