E-500 Wagon tires

ReviewThis is a superb touring vehicle with
comfort, and all-around good
performance. Original tires,
Continental ContiTouring, were a
problem. The rear tires had little
wear left on them at 7000 miles, the
fronts would have lasted a little
longer. Upon complaining, MB service
dept told me they were a high
performance tire with a very soft
compound. I think they were
unsuitable for 98 per cent of the
users who purchase this car. Advice
if buying this vehicle? Look at the
DOT rating stamped on the sidewall.
Anything less than 400 ask for a
different tire. I replaced them with
Bridgestone Potenza's with a 50,000
mile treadwear warranty. There's no
difference in ride, comfort or
Best FeaturesQuietness and handling.
Worst FeaturesMatch the tires to American roads, not the Autobahn, and don't try to impress prospective buyers with a too-soft tire which will seem great for ride, but with an unsuspecting buyer being stuck for premature tire replacement.
