    I’ve just bought 2 new rear tyres for my SL500 285/35/18 Pirelli PZero’s MO which I believe are the recommended tyre.

    If you’re in need of any & not too far away there is a Garage in Derby (BAB Motors) with these tyres on offer at £99 each Fitted when they are normally £183 Each!

    I did shop around and couldn’t find them any cheaper.

    That is cheap!
    They’re not a well loved tyre by most on here to be honest though due to the stiffness and noise when half worn.
    Worth a punt at that price though

    That will be why they’re on offer John ;)
    I just replaced what was already on it to be fair so hopefully they’ll do the trick for that money.

    They were original on my E350CDI, didn’t last long. Replaced with Conti which were a better all around tyre. Now on Rainsports which I am very pleased with.
