I currently have Continental VancoFourSeason 235/65R16 121/119N tyres which are a bit aged now and one has a slow leak from around the valve base.

Looking to replace and the M&S bit is useful but these seem very difficult to get.  In fact not much widely available with this load rating.

Anyone now what the current Mercedes AS come with as standard on the 3880kg chassis?

Not sure about running winters all year round as an alternative.

Thanks

I have been running TOYO H09 all year round for a few years now, excellent on wet grass, mud etc as well as snow/ice.

The current Mercedes still come with the same continental tyre that was developed for the Sprinter and is, reportedly, one of the best performers in the wet. I've seen a lot of Peugeots with that on as well. I would certainly be looking to replace like for like.

I just bought some winter  car tyres from this website

came directly from Germany,  cheapest by far. They also indicate the date of manufacture if the tyres are really cheap!  I wouldn't hesitate to use them again

Thanks everyone.  I think I was a bit concerned the 4 Seasons might be old stock as not many people have them and Continental no longer show them on their own site but if they are still OE fitting then I should be ok.

Sorry, I actually didn't mean to be sarcastic - but in retrospect that's the way it reads.
