RE: want a new/certified pre-owned benz?
yes,you are kindof limited as far as what tire comes from the factory. However, each different wheel will generally come with a different tire as well.
The way I see it...Conti, and michelin both make great long life tires, when a tire manufacturer decides the compounds, tread design, etc... they have to make a decision about the density of the rubber. A softer tire will perform better, but only last 20k, a harder tire will not perform as well, but give you 40k. So, it's a trade-off.
Anyway, If he is really that concerned about it, see what the dealer will do for him, heck, Im sure they are making some money on the deal already. Most dealers are adding "market value adjustments" to their msrp's. Which is a great way to piss people off!:(
