New Tires at 21,762 miles, July 12, 2018

The CPO experience is not without its surprises.

The CLA required tires suddenly. The left front tire was damaged to the point that its sidewall material was peeling off and flaking. There was a plug in the tire that leaked. On the passenger side front, the wheel was bent and then straightened out. The repairman left a sticker reporting this.

So given four year old tires, in went a new set of Bridgestones. These are the run flat version in a 225/45 R17 91W. The speed rating matches that of the car, 168 mph.

The difference in performance was astonishing. Here is a vehicle with the fuel economy of a Hyundai (12 gallon fuel tank and more than 500 miles range) and acceleration to huge speeds in just seconds. Its a speed demon with nothing but economy and performance the two operating parameters. The 4matic also comes in handy to prevent swerving and squealing the tires on acceleration.
