Tyres - Mercedes s class

Postby timmyjt on Mon Dec 09, 2013 9:59 am

Hi all,
Just need some general advice on tyres for the s class merc 2009 model.
I currently use the continental contact tyres 255/35/20

Any recommendations?
Are Nitto tyres good (nt555) ? or shd i stick to the more expensive continentals? or perhaps a cheaper pirellis?

Thanks for any help.
Tim

Ive put nexen tyres on the car now for the past month and filled it with nitrogen. Things couldn't be smoother.
All tyres cost only the cost of one continental tyre!!

My Nexen tyres have been on since December 2013 and three months later, I am happy to report that the tyres are performing very well and smooth ride as ever.
To anyone in doubt of putting these tyres over the premium ones...GO FOR IT and save your money.

Cheers

Nexens are Korean, right?

How much did you save compared to the Continentals?

5k Wow!

how much are these and the continentals?

I guess my Ol' Prados Dunlops are not in the same league.

Nexen was 2500 and Continentals were 7500 on discount.
Yeh these tyres r for 20" rims, XL width and specific for some cars, hence the exclusive high price.
