295/40WR-21 Everybody I know is hating on Pirelli I say ME too now DISAPPOINTING! Check MB forums.. go with a SOFT tire. I don't dare mention a tire manufacture. Spend a few hours reading MB forums, so many tires (the same) are loved and hated.

If your looking for an All -Season tire, (not sure where you live), I use Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires.

I have Pirelli's on now and they are horrible as far as road noise. I am sure it is a safe and quality tire but for noise, it does not work on this heavy SUV.
