I use these tyres because they are approved by Mercedes Benz for this vehicle.

I would say the only problem with these tyres is excessive road noise on some surfaces, although overall I am happy with them.

Great grip and poise they feel glued to the road!!!

Wear more rapidly than I would have thought, possibly because of the high powered supercharged engine.

The previous ones were factory fit and have been very satisfactory - so if they were good enough to fit a top of the range vehicle by Skoda - I wanted to replace them with the same.

Grip & traction totally reliable, steering excellent, straight running, acceptably quiet but noise noticeable (road surface dependent)

Wear poor (4000 to 5000 miles on fronts), low inflation air volume drops pressure with small loss, hardish ride at recommended pressure.

A good all round tyre with plenty of grip.

Only as with all tyres, if you get a nail in the the wall of the tyre the tyre is scrap, and I believe you cannot even put a tube in.

Factory fitted and very good

Would have liked a little more mileage. Had to replace at 11000 front and 13000 rear. Small differences in tyre pressure make a lot of difference to the handling

It was only one available in the country. The tyres fitted as original equipment not available.

Very expensive!

Excellent grip in dry conditions. Above average wet condition grip. Cornering stability.

Durability. Had 2 coins that found themselves wedged in. One of them punctured the tyre with at least 5mm of tread left. The compromise between an ultra soft compound tyre, at the price which they're at, compared to how quickly they wear out is subjectively questionable. A 2 pence piece being able to penetrate a tyre is worrying. The earlier coin was a 5 pence piece.
