I'm back

Haven't been on the forum for a while as I had to register a new account for some funky reasons.
I had some issues with my car and got them sorted out.

If you buy suspension arms online branded Lemförder name or Febi or whatever the brand is coz they are cheap?
Most of the time you don't know what you are buying, if you are buying the genuine stuff or fake parts!
My front ball bearing snapped on the upper control arm, it gave me a terrible sound on bad road surface, had to change it and now she's great again.
Luckily the annual vehicle inspection test never failed my car with a bad UPC.

Doing suspension work, don't forget to do a wheel alignment.
Otherwise wrong alignment will eat your tires unevenly!

She's doing great now.
Time for new rubbers soon, this will be the last year with my old Conti Sports.
Will Premium Contact 6 do any good for an AMG as there are no Sport contact 6 out yet?

Michelin are the bomb but cost more!
Conti's are more affordable to buy.

Don't know why AMG has Conti as an OE part supplier if Michelin's are the better tires?
Shouldn't MB offer the best tires for AMG?

Michelin is a MB supplier. You can also find Michelin tyres with the MB approval stamp MO if I'm not mistaken

Will check test reviews and do a research before I buy new shoes.
Michelan's or Conti's, nothing else?
Don't want noisy tires, straight line tire tread for peace of mind.
They must also be long life, nu erasers!

My current tires C-SPC-3 have nice dry rot with rubber cracks , however they are still legal at 3mm tire tread.

I think Michelin's are the #1 in the tire world.
They invented rubber tires and french fries
