Just changed my rear Conti 3s for Michelin Pilot 3s after 14000 mls (ATS £167). Quite honestly, can't tell much difference. But then again I try to drive smoothly. Hope the Michelin's have a longer life...

summer tyres vs all season tyres

I wonder that are there any all-season tyres for Mercedes? I am not sure which to go for summer tyres or all season tyres.

Some excellent reports coming in on the new Goodyear F1 asymmetric 2 tyre. I'm going to try them next. I'm running Kumho on rear at the moment and can't complain.
Now to be honest I've run Conti sports, Goodyears, Michelins and Kumhos and I have to admit they are all pretty much as good as each other.

I've read them too, but not cheap, circa £179 each! :eek:

I had the previous Goodyear F1's, plenty of grip but wore out really quick

Agree my Assymetric 1s only gave me 13k on rears. All others just over 15k. Asymmetric 2s supposed to be much better. But yes at that price can almost get 2 Kumhos for price of one Goodyear.

Just avoid anything with a ^ pattern. They are just not suited to MB's.

Fallen or Hankook are a good alternative to premium brands.

Bridgestone RE050's - good grip, price and wear rate.

I had them before, not so good in the wet and not good wear rate either. Believe me, the Falken ZE912 is a better tyre than the Bridgestone for a lot less money.

Michelins PS3 should last longer than continentals

Really I stuck them on my previous car after only getting 11K out of the dunlop sports it came with from the factory. The ps3 were ok in the dry, better than the dunlops but that really isn't a recommendation, but terrable in the wet and only laster 10K miles :-(
