No it doesn't, it's a 285.



You can fit the biggest tires you can get your hands on under these cars. 355/25/20

there is a 375/20/21 available as well.

345/35/19 is the money shot though, if you can find them.

You are looking at wrong AMG CLK63. I'm talking about CLK63 black series, it is DTM car for street. It has 385s in rear. go to amg website and look under CLK63 black series.

When I go to CLK63 black series, technics, suspension it list the rears as 285/30 R 19

Am I missing something?

I am thinking that has to be a typo. More than a 20mm difference between front and back (which makes a 265f and 285r make perfect sense) will make for a less than idea handling situation as the rear tires will push the front right through even a slower speed turn as the difference increases. A 120mm difference would be insane!

That is a typo. On the tech page, it is listed as a 285 tire. On the video that plays when the page is opened, the car going around the track does NOT have 385s. Not even close to it. They look way more like 285s. Also, looking at the tire from the side, if the tire were a 385/30, the sidewall would be a lot larger than the fronts which are only 265s and also have a 30 aspect ratio. Clearly, they are not that different.


...or you could go to tire rack and see what tire they say is OEM on a 2008 clk black...

The widest tire currently available for purchase on a "street compound" is the infamous 355/25/19, in the 20 inch it's the 345/25/20,and the 21 inch 375/20/21 is not available as of yet. you can of course purchase a taller profile in those section widths however.

355/25/19 is a sweet set-up that I run.



385 typo is causing fantasies for someone.

Besides the way the tire looks, what is the advantage of 17" 18" or 19" rims?
Do larger rims mean you can go faster? Better grip?

A larger wheel will allow you to have a smaller, stiffer sidewall. To a point, that can improve handling. The larger wheel also moves weight out from the center of the wheel towards the edges which increases polar inertia which requires more force to accelerate the wheel which hurts braking and acceleration. For the most part, going to 19s or 20s is for bling. There isn't just one wheel size that is perfect for everything. On my jeep, I replaced my 16" or 17" wheels with 15x12 inch wheels so I can take advantage of the larger sidewall to help me out offroad.

TYPO

I like how people pick what to believe and what not to. The site list 2 different sizes so instead of using a little common sense they go with the one that sounds impressive
