    Hi there, I need to replace the tyres on '98 C250TD... Does anyone know if there's a recommended tyre? The amount of tyres out there is baffling but I'm not able to spend a fortune... Been offered some Barum tyres at £55 each fitted apparently on offer, they are made by Continental apparently but I guess they are no better than a 'budget'??

    Don't know about that brand but Kumho's are quite well thought of. I put 2 on the front of my 202 about 6 months ago and I'm very happy.

    I've used Barum's before on an older E34 BMW.

    Not bad, but I must confess they did leave a bit to be desired in terms of grip and overall life.

    My current 1999 C250TD estate was fitted with Vreidstein (sp?) tryes all round before I got it and they have proven to be a good tyre in both the wet and dry.

    Personally, I'd suggest ignoring the very cheap budget tyres and go for 'mid range' if you're looking to keep the costs sensible.

    Personally I fit Dunlop SPs to all my motors, currently a CLC220. Good wear and hold road well although it's all motorways miles I do.
