Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
December 06, 2012

I replaced the original Continental tires on a 2008 MBZ E 350 4-matic sedan that had become scalloped and the ride was so noisy I could barely hear the radio above 60 MPH. A poor tire choice for MBZ, but that's another issue. After some research, mostly on this site, I selected Bridgestone and have been very pleased. I live in New England and these tires, now at 10K miles are great. Smooth, quiet and responsive. They are not performance tires and if one is inclined toward high speed driving, jack rabbit cornering or darting between lanes at >80 MPH, more research may be required, but for normal highway and city driving, I could not be more pleased.
