Tires for 1999 E300D

The Michelin Primacy MXV4's have served me well for years and were recommended by a member here. Now I need to replace at least two of them and they are no longer available. So what are you guys using now in the 215/55R16 size?

Thanks.

I really like my Continental Pure Contact LS tires on my 2014 E250. Very smooth and quiet. Great in the rain too. I have almost always had Michelin, these are my first Continentals.

The Michelin Primacy was overkill for the car in terms of $$$ money you didn't need to spend on that car. I went with a bit lesser of an all season Michelin from Sears Tire Store two years ago. They're great!

Thanks for the replies guys. I went with the Primacies six or seven years ago based on a recommendation from a member here. They served me well and the price at the time was about the same as anything else that I'd consider. I was looking for a tire that would give me more miles than the previous tires I had been using, The E300 was my primary driver at the time, but things have changed. I'm lucky to put two thousand miles a year on it now and probably am looking for long life as opposed to high mileage. And with the car now being over twenty years old, I don't know how much longer it will be around.
