As title, looking for recommendations on all season rear tyres for a CLS350 CDI with stage 1 remap

Need to be decent in the wet as the current tyres, I forget what they are, the Mercedes OE ones, are not great to say the least.

they’re the 280/30 R19’s.

Camskill is cheapest for 285x30x19 Goodyears.

58 ML-320CDI.
Rotalla race.
Jut put Rotalla 220 winters on the rear of my ML 420 at the recommendation of my local garage. After 10 miles I’m looking to change already as grip is horrendous. corner grip non existent and if I try to accelerate too quickly on a damp road from 30mph I get traction control lights flashing.

Sorry about that m8. The rotalla jibe is an old forum subject that was flamed ..... ive just fitted bridestone all weathers to my e350 and tbh I cant get the back to kick out or lose traction.

We have Bridgestone OE on our SLC250d, not a tyre I would think of fitting but very impressed.

Thanks all. Plenty to look into there.

mines currently on continental sport contacts, they’re useless and have worn at a rate of about -1mm per 1000 miles so not exactly long lasting!

Current whip has the GY F1 Assy 5 on all 4 corners and despite being really low profile, 20s and RF are quite brilliant, best I’ve had in a long time

It is IMO the best all round tyre

Maybe in the summer ;)
How are the F1’s in the winter, wet, slush, occasional snow? The conti’s I have on now have very poor grip in the slightest damp but are great in the dry. I want better wet road performance as let’s face it, the north of England is a wet place.

Do you need an ultra high performance (Goodyears words, not mine) summer tyre or an all season?
I'm still happy with the Crossclimate + which isn't even the best in test these days for all seasons but I haven't noticed any compromises in the summer and it comes into its own at this time of year.
Size availability is sometimes an issue with all seasons.
