    Call the Magic Negro at the big white house. He'll know the perfect tire make, size and pressure to insure optimum performance and longevity! You'll be all set! Tim

    Have "the one" inflate them with hot air while you're there. Careful some rubber melts, and some rubber leaks, vuala a crappy president.

    For my wife's 5 series, best tire value, hands down is Continental. Made in the USA.

    regards,

    Ask the question on the above forum, lots of information from MB owners.

    You'll be lucky to get 35K out of any tire for a MB. Except maybe Goodyear Eagles. Tires last about 30-35k on my 300D. I've got 205K on the car, so I've bought a lot of tires.

    After thirty years in the tire industry this much I can tell you. There is not "best tire". Tires are a product of compromise, they do some things well and other things not so much. What are you trying to get from the tires? Great preformance as a rule, means shorter tread life. Great wet traction and good milage means longer tread life but only fair preformance. Id' look at the Pirelli tires line for a Benz Michelin is ok but more money and not as forgivning a ride.
