My car is 2004 E500 4MATCH with AMG SPORT PACKAGE.
I had involved in an accident today. It was snowing and I was turning
right on the snow at approx 30km/h (Down-hill). Suddently it begin to
slide and lose control. At the end, it hit the car that parked on the
side. The repair cost is estimated to be $10,000.
After the accident, I remembered few months ago, Mercedes-Benz changed
my tires to "Michelin Sport A/S" and I went onto Michelin's website and
did a search, and it says
"We're sorry. There are no tire matches for your vehicle."
I'm wondering, could this be the problem causing the car to slide so
easily? When I was using my old tire (Original come with the car), I
can drive on the snow without any problem!
Any suggestion? Should I claim Mercedes for it? Any comments would be
P.S. The Michelin website is at
Thank you all in advanced!!
