I have an E Class with OEM 17x7.5 rims. I am looking for the quietest and smoothest riding 235/45/17 tire. Can you tell me what to get? Would they be the Continental Conti Sport 2 that MBZ puts on the cars or do you know of something with a better ride? I am not really concerned with handling as I only have an E320 and have stock suspension--not much of a race car. I have Phantom ZRX tires on there right now and they are horrible--loud and rough. How much better is a Continental or whatever you recommend? Thanks for any input!

very simple question .... the best ride quality and handling tire in the 235/45-17 tire size is the Firehawk SZ50 EP from Firestone without question !!!! I can not be emphatic enough about how good that tire is when you consider ride quality, handling and tire wear
