Just got my '07 S500 (UK right hand drive model-known as the S550 in the U.S.)and planning to upgrade to the 19" Denebola wheels as seen on the mbusa website.

Anyone have any advice on tyres? My dealer contact is offering me a choice of Advan S4 or Pirelli Rosso tyres....Michelin Pilots were my first choice, but he can't find the correct front/rear sizes with the same thread pattern...

All opinions are welcomed, please!

it's rather hard to compare and Ultra High Perfromance All-Season tire (Yokohama) to a Maximum Performance Summer Only tire (Pirelli) ....

Well that's at least a start for me. I should have mentioned that I'm in Jamaica....So it's summer all round, pretty much....

Except...We do have rainy (hurricane) season, and many of the roads here are less than desirable to drive on...Potholes, dirt and gravel, etc.

The suspension takes a beating and tyres take a beating as well, so I would need something which can handle possibly wet, less than ideal road surfaces.

I guess that means Advan's?
