tires for C230 sport sedan
I am in the market for new tires for my 2004 c230K (5 spoke rims with staggered sizes front and back).
The service guy at the dealership says I need the Continental Sport ContactII tires b/c that is what the car is designed to have and other brands would make too much road noise and not ride as smoothly. Based on his advice, I bought them last time I needed tires, but I am due for tires already again and am really hoping to get some more opinions and to find a tire that lasts more than 20K miles and actually has road hazard warranty.
I do not use the car for racing, just regular driving around town and on the interstate to commute to work in Charleston, SC (no snow here).
How bad is this 'road noise'?
What brand do you recommend other than the Continentals?
