Welcome. Many variables in tyre wear, but given the similarity in the vehicles I’d expect a similar life from your ML really.

Thanks John was a bit concerned it would knock them out in 8000 to 10000 like my mates Q7 did

Thank you. That is more in line with my thinking and lowest quote I have been given is £270 & £280 for continentals and Pirelli

Mine had the 20 inch rims rather than 21, so had 275/50s. I used to fit Continental UHP which were MO, and normally got about 25k a set, maybe a bit over.

HTH,
Bill
