Initial Review: 15,000 miles on tires

Great tire for the money and a good fit for this and many other Mercedes. Conti's are standard and these are a good upgrade from some of the stock tires. I've had 2 sets of these and the wear is wonderful. Easily double the mileage of some Pirelli's and Goodyear's I've used before. The one thing I have noticed are the sidewalls appear to be pretty weak. I've replaced 2 tires because of some rather bad road hazards and the tire gets pinched and the sidewall gets a tear. Tire Rack was very good about replacements and the tire was within warranty. They come with a 8/10 or 1 year warranty so you don't need to get a road hazard unless it will extend the already included warranty and you put miles on your car. Overall this tire is in the high 8's if not 9's.
