you may find a reduction in noise by running a slighter narrower tyre ...
205s perhaps. i find the pirelli 6000 range to be quiet, and also
vredestein (dutch make, i think), but the latter are expensive
You might laugh, but I've had really good results with some Kumho KH11 tires
on my 300D Turbodiesel... they were noisy when I first had them installed
but within 1,000 miles they were pretty darn quiet. They grip like crazy
and wet weather is excellent too (can hardly notice any traction loss) so
for $220 shipped from Tire Rack, I'm blown away with em. Mine were
205/60/15 but I'm pretty sure they make em in your size too.
Something to consider...
Both my last cars came with continentals on as new (190E & 220E) For
whatever reason this one was del;ivered with Michelons on!
Out of the three Mercedes, the 190E 2.0 auto was by far the best car I have
ever owned. Is it because I expect more or are these cars going downhill?
