    Good Afternoon,

    I have a 2015 ML250 that is needing some new tyres. Can anyone recommend any tyres?

    I've had a look online and phoned a few local suppliers but getting mixed responses.

    Some are recommending Toyo Proxes?

    Cheers

    Toyo are pretty average in my experience. What size do you need?

    If they are anything like the Toyo’s that we inherited on the wife’s ML320 then they are borderline dangerous in the wet. Let go with little or no warning.

    Uniroyal RS3’s work very well.

    I can very much recommend Cooper Zeon 4XS.

    Put them on the good lady's XC60 - transformed ride (quieter, and smoother) and handling (steering now feels like there is some sort of physical relation between front tyres and steering wheel). They replaced OE Continentals.

    Recommended them to my Pa on his Freelanderer 2 - just fitted his second set a couple of weeks ago.

    Very sure-footed in the wet too.

    (Just in case Rainshark 3 or 5s aren't available in your size :)).

    Yours is a 350 which might be why? Always a pity they don’t do cross climates in 20”

    Probably because 20” is for fashion only and you don’t require all season tyres on the Kings Road :rolleyes:

    A bloke at work also has an ML350 but with less option bodes ticked ..... his has 19s fitted which are what I think they came out of the factory with. 17s would look very small ....

    There's little difference in ride between this ML on 20s than the R Class before it on 19s .... but I think the Airmatic makes up for the 20s ;)
