Maybe this should be on the wheel/tire forum, but all that seems to be there is wheel talk.
I need new tires for my 2006 c230 sport. The conti sport contact (?) wore out @ <15K...totally unacceptable, the fronts are cupped inside and the right rear is bald, although the left rear has a good amount af tread ?? (4 wheel alignment just done now)
I don't drive this car far, although almost daily. Took me 15+ months to put 13K on it. My driving style is conservative, the roads here are flat and smooth, no snow, lots of rain in the summer. I do like to exit the hiway fast, that's the only (handling) fun I get around here. I'd like a good handling, quite tire that will last more than 20K. My wifes 2005 C230 sport has Michelin Primacys and they feel great, with approx 20K on them and they look good.
I'm leaning toward Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2. As their web site says, an entry level ultra high performance tire. Any thoughts welcome. I'm in S Fl, BTW
