Can’t argue with the suggestions made already could add Dunlop Sport Maxx on and mid range Vredestein do some very good underrated tyres too like the Ultrac Vorti

I’ll give them ago buddy everywhere they seem to be recommended
For sure there are literally dozens on here who recommend them, I fancied the rainsports but they don’t do them my size- similarly the Michelin cross climates which are superb they don’t do in 19s yet

Used to have a C63...
Rainsport 3 all round on mine (19s), and they are superb.

Improved traction off the line (compared to previous Goodyear AS3), and exceptionally sure footed in the wet.

Quiet and smoother riding too.

i had budget tyres on my E350 convertible when I got the car. They were fine but could wheel spin them at the touch of the accelerator and balded them in 5000 miles. Also the inside of the fronts started to get bulges from delaminating. So I thought next time get decent tyres. I bought Pirrelli Nero Zero GTs and the looked and felt great. But coming back from Horley one evening in the dark I hit a pot hole in the road and that made another bulge in the side wall of my front tyre. So after 2 weeks of fitting I needed another.
If you have 30 or 35 profile tyres, in the future I am going to get run flats as the sidewalls are 5X stronger and I do not want to keep shelling out for tyres at £140 each.

I am on my 3rd set or Uniroyal RS3, amazing value for money and boy do they stick to the road.

Wet weather performance is staggering, never had a single twitch from the cars rear whish frequently happened with the P-Zero before

Just be aware the 5x stronger sidewalls will also be 5x harsher riding.

Well since I started this post I have gone down another pot hole and burst another new tyre.
So as far as I am concerned stay away from Pirrelli P-Zero Neros.
Found out also, nobody makes a run flat 235/35-19 tyre. Which is a bit odd.
So I have now fitted to the front Uniroyal RS3s with Extra load side walls.
Also have ignored the tyre pressure chart on the filler flap and am putting the tyre pressures as if the car is fully loaded
40psi front and 50psi rear. So far so good..

You will wear the middle of the tyre out very fast, most on here run them at 2psi under the recommended
