Follow-Up Review: 40,000 miles on tires
November 05, 2013
I've put 40,000 miles on these tires now and I am still impressed. I have never been able to get more than 30,000 miles out of other tires (including Michelin and Conti) on this care. I can easily get 5,000 more miles on this set before I hit the wear bars.<br><br>The road noise is increased a bit now that the tires are worn down, but not as bad as the Conti 4x4 Contact or the Michelin Latitude Tour were at the end of their lives. I will never buy another model of tire for my R350.
Initial Review: 3,000 miles on tires
December 09, 2011

I've never really been a fan of the asymmetrical tread designs, so was a bit nervous about getting these tires. I have tried many tires on my Mercedes R350 and these Firestones are at least as good as the Michelin Latitude Tour HP and better than the Continental 4X4 Contact. The ride they give is very solid but smooth. Handling is excellent, given the large size of the car. Best of all, these Firestones are FAR less expensive than Michelins or Conitnentals. If you have a luxury crossover SUV don't hesitate to try these tires.

My car eats tires in 30,000 miles (been through Conti, Michelin and Pirellis). I'll report back about how these wear over time.
