What tires do you run on?

What tires do you run on?

I am not talking only about your Mercedes, but also, if you have other cars as well.

I think I got most of the tire companies. If your tire company is not listed, add it.

This should be a good poll

VOTE!!!

RE: What tires do you run on?

I have BFGoodrich on the 300 SE, not too impressed with those. The 500 SEL has Contis on the rims but one tire went out of round so I have the stock rims on now with Dunlops. The 123 has the mix-and-match house brands.

The plan: get tires for both sets of 16 inch CLK rims and put them on each 126, put the stock 500 SEL rims on the 123, they’re 14 inch but wider but not too wide to fit. The 15 hole 15 inch rims will be stowed away or sold.

I'd love to take part, but you missed Bridgestone and you did not give me an option to add

I had Turanzas on my 560SEL.

Plan to fit the Element with Dueler Alenzas before the winter after next.

Dam, sorry Naomilla, I could have sworn that I clicked on the "Let Users Add Options" box.

Sorry, I will try to ask and get it fixed.

The ML is on Continental tires, and the Dodge is on Goodyears. Pretty good, but the Conti's are a little noisy.

well, I can't, cuz I asked Dutch, and he said "Can't. I can edit the message body, but cannot edit the poll section itself. Sorry."

So... What we could do, is delete this thread, and make a second one. Anyone want to do that? Sorry for being so dumb, and forgetting to click it, even though I meant to.

Thank you for responding so quickly though, Dutch.

Re: What tires do you run on?

My 92 SEL came with Pirellis, since there were "vib" issues they changed to Michelins with a lower speed rating. I have gone up and down in speed ratings, The best tires so far have been Turanzas, that were road force balaced. I have purchased too many Michelins. The reason they are geting so many votes is they are typically installed and MB dealers sell them at top price.
GOOD BALNCE, HIGHER PRESURES, GOOD ALIGMENT AND COMPONENTS
