Will check the date code tomorrow. Shame that the tires have so much tread left but are going to be trashed.

I have had good success with Yokohamas and will continue with those.

Re-balanced the tires and the vibration and rattling is gone -- but I can still hear/feel them (or rather the road) since they are not as new as I believed. They do perform well in the rain though.

I spoke too soon on the '09 -- one just appeared and I plan to see it today.

Only concern is that it has 90K miles, vs the ~60K of the '07 & '08 I am considering.

Sedan.

So would the '05 E500 not be a good choice? (I was looking at one moments ago.)


My E430 was M113/722.6 and trouble-free, so I'd like to keep that going.
