    Believe it or not my Mercedes sprinter is the 2007 version and only now have I got to have some new tyres on the front. I am a disabled driver so don't awful lot of driving.

    I suppose it's best to replace with what was already on there. How much are tyres for the Mercedes sprinter nowadays?

    Remember this is a cargo van so the load rating requires 10 ply ratings.
    Well it does where I am.

    There are only three good tyres I will use
    Michelin (top of the pile )
    Continental-(Good)
    Kumho (alright I suppose!)
    Tuerca Viejas

    From using many different tyres on my Sprinter (225/70 15") of which I thought were 8 ply:-

    Mich. (forget) sidewalls way to soft and sway baddly when on the rear, but the grip is ok.
    Conti. (forget) same as the the Mich. but with a little less grip
    Goodyear/Dunlop - Less sway but not so good in the wet.
    Pirelli - Similar to the Goodyear Cargo.
    Toyo - (just Don't bother) weak walls & no grip whatsoever.
    Uninroyal - same as the Toyo.
    Kumho - I've not tried.
    Yokohama - At Present I can't fault, and because of which

    Please Mich. can i buy some MXC's that the van came with from new!!!
