These tires are on our 07 MB GL450. I was torn between another value tire and a good deal on the Continentals OEM. The Conti's wore out like in 15000 miles. I decided not to go with a value tire as they have not performed well, nor lasted well, nor have any decent ride quality in this vehicle. (Last value tire was a set of Hankooks) These have an 80k mileage warranty are very sticky, almost like riding on rails, however, they have a decent soft ride, yet if you sneeze they respond. They grip the road exceptionally well. I was considering Bridgestone and Michelin. These were about $200.00 cheaper for the set than the Michelin tires and have 20k more mileage warranty in the same speed rating. I'll report back after they are fully broken in, however, these tires ride beautifully and are very reasonably priced. Just drove 100 miles through a snow storm prior to writing this review... (and its still snowing).
