"Perfect" fit is a tire that is 0.5" narrower than the wheel.

Michelin A/S 3+:
The 245/40 is 8.3" , the 235/40 is 8.2" across, and the 225/40 is 8.1" across.


225/40 is the better fit here...

Some are better than others though.

Dealer Castrol 5w-40 meets MB229.3 but not .5.

Uh, it's highly recommended to use Pentosin fluid as it's OE.

Even Liqui Moly isn't 100% recommended by certain VW techs.

Scamsoil is asking for trouble here, IMO.

$400 is on the high side I'd say.

On average it should be around $350, though I paid $288 at the dealer.

In the meantime, I'll continue to use Shell/Exxon 93 and you can stick with NoName 87.
