Ditched the pirelli scorpion verde all seasons and got Michelin Latitude Tour HP

After 20 k miles of these Pirellis which were prob the worst tires I have ever had on the 2013 ml350. They vibrated when new and 3 were defective and replaced at 1k miles. Then at 15,000 k they were becoming harsher and noisier. They wore fast even with good pressure and nothing like the Michelin Latitudes that I had on my 2010 Ml350 with 19 inch which lasted more than 40k miles. These tires made the Ml350 feel very rough over choppy pavements and fine bumps in the roads. Then at 19k miles they began to vibrate on highways above 80 mph.

I got the Michelin Latitude Tour HP placed on my ML350 this morning and after alot of driving it felt much more luxurious, smoother like driving on cloud with my airmatic in comfort mode. IT did not have any noise, vibration, or choppy ride. It was more Mercedes like. The handling will be judged after proper break in. Otherwise no pulling or wandering. Very good braking feel. I highly recommend these tires as replacement for the 2012-2013 Ml350s.

I am glad to hear that. My Honda Ridgeline truck had the Michelin's as standard equipment. They lasted over 50,000 miles and were a great riding and quiet tire. My 2012 ML350 came with Dunlops and the reviews for those tires were not good at all. I have nearly 12,000 miles on them and although I know I can do better I must admit that I have had no complaints. When it comes time to get new tires I would have leaned towards Pirelli. Thanks for reminding me about the Michelins and how well they perform on our vehicles.

Glad to be of assistance! I admit that I am a Michelin fan.
