Newb with a question

Hi everyone,

About a year ago I gave in to temptation, and bought a 2008 C300 4Matic Sport. I have loved driving it, but it is coming time new tires, and front brakes/rotors. I am looking pretty hard at the Continental ContiExtremeContact DWS 245/45/17 tires. I live in Columbus, OH so there isn't a ton of snow, but we get enough that I would like to have a tire that does well in ice, slush, snow, etc. From what I can tell they seem to be pretty good for the money ($556).

I have also looked at pads/rotors, and am leaning towards MB. It was recommended to me that I look into getting a new brake pad sensor since it has yet to go off, and they are at 2mm.

If anyone has any suggestions on tires, brakes/rotors, or the brake pad sensor I would greatly appreciate it. As most of us are, I am looking for the best quality product I can get at a resonable cost.

Thanks in advance,
