    I need to replace the Khumos on the rear of my W209 CLK 270CDi. Have been pleased with the Ku's, had Toyos previously, which were fine too. To be honest I can't really appreciate the difference. I'm not sure of the mileage on the Khumos as I had winter tyres on last winter.

    Has anybody run Savas and any thoughts on how they compare? Can get a pair for £150.

    If you like the orange triangle lighting up on the dashboard and are a thrill-seeker then buy the SAVA's.

    There were some SAVA tyres on my 210 when I bought it and they were incredibly unsafe tyres in the wet. Very, very poor indeed. :crazy:

    Same here, I was scared to drive the car a little more then I should. The rear was always trying to be at the front :crazy:
    Then I got Falken tyre, 452 I think, night and day :rock:The handling was so much better :thumb:
    First with the SAVA I thought it was the car that was too heavy and couldn't be driven properly, nope , it was SAVA....Dangerous tyres :devil:
    Now I got falken 912, good too, not as good as the 452 but at least I can move them around to get an even use, with the 452 you can only move front to rear but not side to side :(

    You could get a pair of Michelin Pilot Sport 3's for around another £60 at Costco (if they have the twice yearly 20% discount running).
    I bought four for around £400 last year. They're fantastic and will last a long time.

    you like cheap tyres from Balkan buy SAVA but they might not be so good for a Merc, Sava is a river in SRBIJA
