Haha seriously I cant remember of the top of my head, I think they are low-mid range branded tyres :D
Wish I could put Michelins on mine, cost about £230 a tyre at 235/60/16!! My options are kumno kh31 (£81) or Falken ze912(£103). Ultimately looking for the smoothest, quietest ride!
Everything on the w140 is stock, 16 rims and not lowered, run at 32psi all around.
I have Goodyear NCT5's at the back which have been on there for a long while but the front has been changed a a year or two ago but then it sat for a while.
Been a few mechanics they say theres nothing wrong...
Hey guys, when I bought my car it was probably sitting on a farm for a little while. I've gotten my suspension checked out and everything seems in check and replaced a few parts.
I've still got a harsh ride, and recently done a wheel alignment. About 60g and 50g were put on the rear tyres...
I'm really hoping its not the struts because $$$$! My system has already been flushed with new hydraulic oil, how else could you tell the struts have gone?
For me it looks like either the new accumulators I got installed were installed incorrectly or somehow have broken, or its the struts.
Thanks for the help guys.
The problem is not clunking which I did have and was fixed by the self leveling valve. But it's more of the car not absorbing the road and me feeling all the bumps.
My accumulators have been replaced but by someones who's not a specialist. Therefore im thinking he...
Alot of things have been done so I'll try to break it down as much as possible.
When I got the car had a low rear end and really bad clunking from bumps. First mechanic was clueless, replaced tandem pump and accumulators, cost $$$ and fixed nothing.
Then went to mercedes specialist, he...
It's a 1995 S500.
I also found this, not sure if they ship to UK though:
These things are really build to last, many go to 200k miles but just need to keep it well maintained, regular servicing and it should do you proud! I myself own a W140 S500, uneconomical in the city, much better on the motorway. But its just my weekend/long journey car. S320 should be better...
