Update on Continental Pure Contact LS tires. Couldn't find my prior thread so started a new one. Several hundred miles on them and they are definitely quieter and more comfortable riding than the Michelins that I had before. Fuel economy seems to be about the same.

I have those on my 2014 E350 Sedan -- way too harsh for my liking. I still have them on my car and waiting for them to wear out. Not sure what I'll go with once they're done. Maybe the Pirelli PZero All Season Plus? OR the one's OP mention in this thread .... not sure.

Remember though, your E350 didn't have AIR MATIC air suspension and was an E class. The S is one of the smoothest riding sedans on the planet with superior suspension.

Keep in mind the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ is an Ultra High Performance All Season tire. The Continental Pure Contact LS that the OP mentioned is a Grand Touring All Season tire. A Grand Touring tire will give you a more comfortable ride and longer wear, but you sacrifice a bit of performance (grip, braking distance, etc).

I like either the Turanza Bridgestone Serenitys or the Pirelli Centurato P7's. Can't go wrong with either of these tires IMO.
