CLS 320 CDI
Hello all,

I have joined this club as I bought a 2007 CLS 320 CDI recently. Currently the car has some cheap tyres and also different tyre treads and I would like to change them. They are 245/40/18.

The car has TPMS, but I don't want run flats. The car is freshly MOT'd and I am going to do around 25000 miles in the next year. What I am after are a set of comfortable and quiet tyres. (and with good fuel economy of course)
I checked and compared different reviews and numbers online, but it would be good if people share their real experience.

Any suggestions please?

Many thanks in advance.
 
My Goodyear efficient grip tyres are nice and quiet on my s211 cdi, Excellent grip in the Wet too.
 
Thanks Merc85.

I too heard the Goodyear efficient grip and Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric are excellent. Let us see if any CLS owners chip in their opinions too about any tyres particularly for CLS.

I was in the same shoes as u are,for some time now ,and eventually someone here advised me this:

"Go for Michelin. Conti. Toyo. or Verd for a real soft wall or.

Goodyear Dunlop, Kumho or falken for middle of the road..

Avoid Yoko, Bridgestone and Pirelli:thumb:"

He was right.
Michelin pilot sport 3 or Michelin Super Sport is what i would suggest.
Even though i'm really curious on the Verdestein,cause their desibel level is lower than any other tyre.
 
I recently had a set of Michelin PS3 fitted, quiet with good grip and a decent looking tread pattern.:D
 
Vredestein tyres were the best I had on my CLK, better than conti or Michelin in all respects.
Unfortunately they are not readily available in all sizes and sources.
 
On my old W219 that I had for 6 years I always fitted Goodyears and I thought they were good, On the W218 that I have recently bought, it has Pirelli fitted and I think they are quite a bit quieter than the Goodyears which surprised me
 
I am running nexen N8000. Very very good tyre in my opinion. Last set were Michelin. Cannot tell the difference between them, they are that good.

It's the car that's more soundproofed,not the tyres thats quiter.

Nexen, If I were looking for a luxury used car and it was shod with these tyres I'd keep looking, imo if the owner is skimping on tyres, what else have they?

For comfort and quiet, you'd have a job beating Michelin Primacy. May be more expensive, but you'll certainly do more miles with them.
 
Did anyone have experience with Dunlop SportMaxx RT 97Y XL? The decibel level on them is 68db and also excellent fuel and wet grip ratings. Not sure about comfort though!

Thanks.
 
The new EU tyre classification has rating for noise levels, and based on these the Dunlop FastResponse and BlueResponse seems to have low noise levels (68db from memory).

However, I am assuming that the EU rating is more to do with the environmental impact, ie the noise outside the vehicle, so I am not sure how these ratings translate to noise in the cabin - it is possible that the rating is insignificant when compared to the effects of cabin design and sound-proofing.

But said that, opting for a tyre with low noise level rating is probably a good start.
 
Thanks for your valuable inputs everyone.

I did a bit more research and I like what I read about Michelins PS3 and Goodyear Eagle Asym2.

Finally I am going with Goodyear and will post my reading soon after.

Cheers guys.
 
Goodyear Eagle Asym2.

Please report back. I am thinking Goodyear too as it's quiet and a recently released tyre.
