Redman, I ordered from Tire Rack - these are a high performance summer tire at an amazing price - $126.00 per tire. They have a wear factor of 300.Redman said:Wow - now thatz an aggressive tread pattern.
Just re-tired here with all original OEM Contis (non Conti Seals) - much to my disgust. (Tire Rack gipped me)
Care to share info on the price side?
Also, how do they ride - quiet? Sure-gripped?? Etc.
PS - Car looks great.
The steering "kick" is pretty much gone as is the road crown and groove "wandering". Ride is very comfortable. A bit of hum at speed but since I took the resonators off, I can't hear it.II kings 9:20 said:How is the steering kick NR. With regards to the bolt/knuckle, it moves up and down with the wheel so if it is clear while sitting it should be exactly the same while cornering.
Thanks, Charlie.charlie D said:GREAT JOB all the way.You just made my mind up for me !!
Yep, and the Conti's are ok on the Mercedes M class SUV's, as OEM tires.frank29 said:That makes me wonder about their longevity. There's probably other factors involved; but, the Conti self sealers have a wear factor of 360.
I really wasn't picking on the tires; just making an observation. They do look great....I'll probably end up getting a set.Northern Rider said:Yep, and the Conti's are ok on the Mercedes M class SUV's, as OEM tires.
Just no good on the LX platform. As to the BFG's, we'll have to wait and see.
No, there are no clearance issues with these 18" tires.CohibaEsplinado said:any rubbing when the whee's turned all the way?
