Hi Luke,<br><br>
<br><br>
I have a 99 SLK with Sport Package, and I bought Bridgestone RE71 from tirerack about 20 months ago. (I believe that model tire is no longer available.) The front tires now need to be replaced (after about 20,000 miles), but the rear are still ok. Here's what I am looking for:<br><br>
<br><br>
1) I need 225/45R17 for the front and 245/40R17 for the rear.<br><br>
<br><br>
2) The most important thing to me is treadlife. (I'd like to see 50k miles out of them if possible). I don't consider myself a very aggressive driver.<br><br>
<br><br>
3) If possible, I would like to see all 4 tires wear evenly. (I know this is difficult since they are staggered.)<br><br>
<br><br>
Can you recommend anything?<br><br>
<br><br>
Thanks in advance,<br><br>
Almon
