Have an E63 with 19inch std MB rims (9j ET37 front, 9.5J Et52 rear) . Tyre sizes 255/35 Zr19 (96Y) XL front and 285/30 ZR19 (98Y) XL

Looking for recommendations. Goodyear eagle ? I am unlikely to do many winter miles in it / dont intend to have a set of winter wheels

Thanks

Welcome Tony
I had the stock Pirelli P Zeros on mine which I assume you also still have.
I wasn't madly keen at first (Hard ride) but they seemed to rubber in around 10k ish, then they were OK but only had about 3-4k left.
If I had kept it I was torn between the Goodyear Assy 3 and the Falken Azenis FK510 both I had personal recommendations from other members on here.....
For winter I ran Uniroyal MS77 which were fine, but awful if it got overly warm

Thanks john should have mentioned its got Falken Azenis FK510, the rear profile is 285/35 rather than MB manuals 285/30 which is not going to make a massive difference

We have FK510 tyres on the rear of our SL500 and I'm pretty pleased with them.
Ours are also in 285/35 19 size as the previous owner wanted more sidewall.

Mine came with the Pirellis which I didn't like and swapped after a couple of months. I replaced them with the Michelins which have been excellent but that's the only 2 I can compare. It seems to be car specific I was happy with the Pirellis on other cars. I use Continentals in winter but if they ever get replaced I would use cross climates in Winter in the future.
https://www.tyrereviews.co.uk is a pretty good resource as, how many of us have tried lots of competing new tyres back to back in controlled situations.

I'll be replacing the Pirelli P Zero's on my E63 with Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 5's when the time comes.

Will make a massive difference, you are 4.7% larger than OEM.

The max recommended change is + / - 2.5%

Falken or Goodyear are both good choices

It always amazes me how many hi performance cars are fitted with Pirelli rubber but in most cases its far from the right tyre for the car :confused:o_O

I tried a few different types on my W212 when I owned it and came to the conclusion that the Goodyear Eagle you mention suited it the best out of the ones I used. At the time they were the asymmetric 2 but I have a couple of mates with the later versions who say that they are also fine.

Tyres only averaged around 3 - 6,000 on the rear of mine as it was highly modified with a lot of torque, hence giving me the option of trying other makes. Contis were good at grip but very poor on wear. Vredestein shredded after c2k miles and Michelin PS3 were OK but not as good as the Goodyear for grip.

As noted above, the rears should be 285 30 19 and not a 35% profile

Manufacturers buy whatever is cheapest at the time
