DryflyI need to purchase new tires for my Mercedes E320. I drive fast and corner agressively, and live where there is no snow and little rain and VERY hot in the summer. I want to keep my standard 15" rims.

Can any of you help me with a good choice for performance tires?

Every dealer I talk to here wants to keep me in Michelin Energy's but they appear to be more of a compromise touring tire to my uninformed mind.

Many thanks,

two recommendations for you that are cheaper than the Michelins and handle a lot better:

1.) Bridgestone RE 730
2.) Kumho Supra 712

Shop at not your local dealer for the best price and service. They will drop ship your tires to a recommended tire installation center or a shop of your choice. They have excellent test results and customer survey results to compare tires. My e-mail is if you have any more questions.

laqnBrigestones are stiff riding, and I wouldn't trust Brigestone/Firestone anymore. I like Pirelli P6000 summer tires: 215/60VR15. These will ride smoother, and unless you have aftermarket suspension upgrades, Ultra High Performance tires will just ride noisier and harsher.
