These tires most assuredly saved me from an accident. While driving at about 40mph at an intersection, a drunk driver ran his stop light and T-Boned the car immediately in front of me. Had I hit the brakes I know I would have hit the offending driver. I turned the wheel hard right and although the tires were screeching and screaming their protest, I made the 90° turn at 40mph as if my Mercedes were on a rail track. Finest tire I have ever had on a Mercedes!
