    Hi, Any recommendation for tyres on my w211 are welcome for 225/55/16. Options available in my area are Goodyear EfficientGrip and Dunlop. Previously I had Michelin Primacy but front tyres are making the right a little bumpy so I am thinking of replacing it with Goodyear EfficientGrip. I have never used Goodyear before that is why I am asking for recommendation.
    Thanks in advance.

    I disagree, I got over 35,000 miles out of my Conti 5s and they still had tread on them!!!!!!!

    That will be why then .

    Ordinary 5's completely different wear experience .

    Highly unlikely.

    More likely different driver or different variant of the car or different size of wheel or different driving patterns.

    Getting decent assessment of how tyres fare from reviews or internet forums is a nightmare. It's too common for someone to unequivocally state tyre X is fantastic or tyre Y is terrible while somebody else will state the exact opposite.

    It's probable that you find MO 5's will be the same as Ordinary 5's apart from the MO marking, some paperwork and a possible test acknowledged by MB.

    Think about it. If the tyres are significantly different then why would they stick with the same underlying branding.By simply doing some paperwork and having an MO in the mould they're able to sell a customer the MO or non-MO tyre without any hassle - and if they overproduce a batch of MO tyres then can pass the excess through stockists as substitute for non-MO.

    It's a bit more to it than that , manufacturers specify certain performance perameters and then the compound is changed .

    Same thing with longer lasting Conti 5 AO ( Audi Original ) .

    The ordinary 5's are poor for wear period .
