Mercedes Benz C180K Avantgarde Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Bridgestone A001 given 94% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 5000 average miles
Ok before I describe these tyres I have to say that this is my second pair of all weather tyres. I had the Hankook 4S ones on my other car and they are amazing, silent and grippy....However, in wet conditions they are a tad behind other summer tyres.....My reason for getting the A001 was the snow factor in UK. I travel everyweek from ipswich to manchester and back so I need good tyres. My local shop had only these available in 16 so I had no other option (otherwise i would have gone for the hankook ones) so I took a leap of faith and man I am glad I did.....Yes as reviewers say they are not the silent ones but man are they good.......smooth and yet grippy. During the recent windy (90mph) and extreme wet conditions i was able to maintain a speed of 70mph (despite p00r visibility conditions) with no loss of grip. When I reached manchester there was some unexpected snow and black ice and everyone was slipping in car parks...with only one security jeep making its way and helping people....I thought this would be a good time as any to test the tyres so I went into the car park with a rear wheel drive car (in summer mode) and I was constantly waiting for the car to slip a bit but it didnt....For me it was like there was no ice....although my speed was limited by the traction control to 30 mph but remember this was pure Ice and on braking there was no ABS.....I would highly recommend these to anyone.

Bought these last year from Wheelwright for winter with some steel wheels and the difference they made was unbelievable. I managed to get to work throughout the winter which is important as taking a day off because of snow isn't really an option, and I cannot believe how much better the Merc handles. Before buying these tyres, driving was pant-wettingly scary! Would recommend.

Hello tyre community,

I have the Sportiva Snow Win2 tyres.
Think it's the new one because it says Win2.

These tyres are on the car since december 2017.
Had already driven under heavy winter snow conditions and they give super grip.

Comfort is very good also thread wear.

It's a RWD and also in dry and wet they give decent performance.

Tyres are made in Slovakia in the Barum tyre plant according to the DOT code.

As we all know these tyre companies are part of the Continental family.

Would recommend these tyres and buy them again.

I use these on my W203 Mercedes C Class. I can't praise the tyres highly enough and I would definitely purchase the same again.

Handling is excellent and predictable both front and rear. Dry and wet grip is very good and inspires confidence.

Perhaps the only minus is noise. It is higher than I thought it would be but it is by no means bad.

Driving on mostly motorways for 9000 spirited miles
I had to replace my tyres and got these Conti SC2 on the rear axle.
My Meredes is RWD vehicle and the tyres are superb.
Dry or wet conditions is equal .

This week I mounted my winter tyres at the car and I inspected the wear of the Continental tyres and they were completely worn to 2mm.
I drove about 16K km (10K miles) with them.

But I must say these are one of the best tyres for a safe drive under all conditions.
Never had any grip problems even in heavy rain, no aquaplaining or whatso ever.

These are expensive,but worth every penny.
