The "Z" means it's a 150mph rated tire

Thank you. What brand for mostly easy driving? Rarely speed higher than 80 on highway. Want smooth ride and good traction when wet.

Michelin, Goodyear, the recognized names. Stay away from Yokomoyamato (not really a name) but for the very best get Goodyear Eagle , directional, yeah, 300 bucks a pop but you asked for best

U didnt specify rim size... Assuming 16", the earlier answer is correct . If you have 17" wheels, 245/45R17...

Could be Blake. Where I got that was Edmund's listing as standard on all '97 SL class. But that's not gospel..may be diff on Heidi's

Yes. 16's. Looking at the Michelin Pilot Sport A S. Any thoughts about that choice? Thanks.

High performance, very high quality, don't get much, if any better...$300 a pop, 45,000 mile pro~rated warranty, speed rating W, not as high as Z but will hold up at a faster speed than you will ever want to go
