For better traction and acceleration, the GranTurismo has larger standard rear tires than the S-Class Coupe (285/35R20 vs. 275/40R19). The GranTurismo MC’s rear tires are larger than the largest rear tires available on the S-Class Coupe (295/35R20 vs. 285/35R20).

The GranTurismo’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the S-Class Coupe’s standard 45 series front and 40 series rear tires. The GranTurismo’s tires are lower profile than the S-Class Coupe’s optional 40 series front tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the GranTurismo has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 19-inch wheels are standard on the S-Class Coupe.
