When you say it would not fit, in what way?  While that tire is bigger than standard, people do use snow cables so there is some wiggle room.

FYI, I went on tirerack.com to see what tires they would sell for a C-Max.  

 

I tried to cut and paste it but it didn't work so well. 

 

Basically, they only recommend one wider tire 235 40 19 on the front and its not 17"

 

They seem to be open to selling 255 40 17 on the rear. (Though I am in no way recommending this, especially with the 2013 C-Max's tendency to cup.) (This did not cut and paste right so I deleted it below.)

Hmmm.... wonder what the LRR characteristics were on this tire.  Hybrid drivers avoid "wet pavement" like the plague and never employ "heavy braking" so these tires should be just fine!  Another story here.  If these things had panned out, you'd also have to select color!  But, oh boy, wouldn't they have looked grand!

 

(Sorry for hijacking - just didn't want another whole thread for this silly post.)
