Talking Best Tires for SLK 280

I just got my used SLK 280 06' Dec and I love it. Living in Florida and having the top down with the breeze in my hair is just shy of perfect.

I took it to the dealer for a minor service and they told me I needed new rear tires. I currently have Michelon Primacy's on it now.

Orion Blue, Nav, Sat, I-Pod, Bluetooth (couldn't live without that extra), Black interior, 26K, upgraded tunes and of course a stick.

morning babyblueslk

on my new 280 i have continetal contact 3's same as my focus St and to be honest its seems to hang on to the road like glue with them, rears are the sport pack wheels which are 245/30/18's was a bit worried after owening an merc c220 cdi estate with primacys on the rear as in the wet it was very tall happy into corners

hope this helps and have to ask hows you SLK and are you loving the experance ?
