Sorry, I should have noted that I am on 21" rims and the tyres fitted from new are Continental Contisport Contact 255/40 R12 102Y on the front and 285/35 ZR21 105Y on the rear. As I have noted the front tyres have maybe 1000km wear left and the rear tyres are only approximately 20% worn. Alas, at my age of 76 I do not drive with the exuberance of youth any more - and when I traded in an F Type Jaguar for the GLC all tires on my F Type were only about half worn after about 20,000km. This is my first Mercedes and apart from the clonking issue and the excessive tyre wear, it is everything the F type was not - and if they sort out this issue I would probably buy another one. My dealer has been the top performing MB dealer here in NZ three years in a row and I am confident they will look after me as best they can. But how much support we get for tyre replacement or steering knuckle replacement from MB Head Office here in NZ may not have been tested yet. At the annual 1st service when I complained yet again about the clonking and the excess front tyre wear the only offer made then was to sell me new front tyres at their wholesale cost.Chunk you don't say what size rims you're on, my 43 on 19's had Goodyear all seasons fitted by my dealer at 1000 miles which virtually eliminated any skipping , though I must admit it wasn't bad with the Michelins but as everyone else was getting new tyres I thought why not , anyway 6000 miles later still no clonking and the tyres are not even half worn in spite of my heavy right foot.
