Mercedes Benz CLK203 Kompressor Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Falken ZE912 given 89% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 10000 average miles
Bought these for my Merc CLK230 Kompressor - mainly because the profile was the same for front and rear (AMG sport set-up on this car requires 225/45 front and 245/40 back) and this was important to me. My previous tyres were Pirelli PZeros as fitted by MB.

First thing I noticed was a much quiter and more comfortable ride. On top of that, the tyres look much better as they don't bulge like the Pirellis. In my opinion they are also better on the road, giving me much more feedback especially around corners. The car is a RWD convertible and I now feel I can go around roundabouts much quicker. Economy is also pretty good for quite a powerful engine.

Front tyres have worn quite a bit on the inside but this is due to my tracking being out - unfortunately I only noticed recently and had it fixed. This means I will need to change tyres soon.

Undoubtedly I will be going back to the Falken ZE912s or the successor ZE914.

These Bravuris 2 rear tyres replaced the death trap 'Sunny' ones that came on the car when i bought it 3 years old. They are superb, I noticed the difference as soonas they were on....in that the car went straight rather than sideways. They grip very well and I have although not often cornered at 25mph without the slightest loss of grip and with normal sensible driving they have done 6000 miles and look brand new.

A good solid budget tyre. These front tyres replaced the Fullrun tyre that the car came with when i bought it 3 years old - they were awful, noisy, no grip, a death trap. These Evergreen gripped the road well and were fine in the wet and the snow. They wore out quicker than i had hoped but were still very good value.
