    Just had four Goodyear asymmetric 3 tyres fitted, is it advisable to have the car the steering aligned as well. Many thanks.

    Not necessary unless as JB says above there were signs of uneven wear across for instance the shoulders really. Some folks do automatically, I don’t as everything seems good

    I wouldn't bother, just keep your eyes on them for a while

    Mum has them on the W204, they are excellent and quiet BUT not quite as good as the RS3 in the wet, they just don't feel as planted

    I have them on a previous car and I think they are really good.

    I had Assy 3's on the W211 and they were noticibly better than the conti 3's they replaced (very quiet). I currently have RS 3's on the C207 and find them just as good. If I was replacing, I'd go with either (whichever was cheaper).

    We have them on the 500 John, and they were fitted to the last 500 too, I am quite impressed by them ;)
    Though they are bit more noiser than the Kumho fitted to the 55 :eek:.
