Grand Touring All-Season run-flat tires provide temporary self-supporting run-flat mobility for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph, even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. They are for drivers who want a combination of a sophisticated appearance, competent handling and H-speed rated (or higher) durability, along with all-season traction, including in light snow. Grand Touring All-Season run-flat tires branded with the M+S symbol and are often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on sophisticated coupes and luxurious performance sedans.

O.E. Grand Touring All-Season run-flat tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. run-flat tires’ performance category and specifications.

NOTE: Run-flat tires are only recommended for vehicles that are originally equipped with self-supporting run-flat tires and equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system.

Though they cannot be labeled as run-flat tires, tires branded with MOExtended or MOE on their sidewalls offer run-flat-like characteristics by delivering limited temporary extended mobility after a puncture results in complete loss of air pressure. Because MOExtended or MOE tires do not have the same speed and distance endurance of conventional run-flat tires, they should not be substituted in any situation where a conventional run-flat tire is required. To confirm what your vehicle needs, check our Original Equipment tire listing for your year, make and model or see your vehicle owner’s manual.

  1. Bought these to replace the OEM Goodyear Eagle LS2 runflats that wore out in 25K miles.Was hoping for something with a less harsh ride around town, over bumps, etc and these definitely helped A LOT with that. However, they are noisier, and definitely much less confident handling at 85 MPH on the highway. If I did primarily highway driving, I would stick with the Goodyears, but I do more around town.

  2. So far the best riding run flats I have had. I have had pirelli p7 and bridgestone potentzias on the x3. Althouht these are fairly expensive, they seem to be worth it.

  3. Being the first time owner of a Mercedes, I did not know that tire rotation is not part of scheduled service, nor recommended. After the first service at 10K, I realized, by the apparent wearing on front tires compared to the rears, the tires were not rotated. That’s when I heard from the service adviser about tire rotation costing extra.Regardless,the front tires were over 50% worn in early 10K, and only has 2/10″ left at 20K. The rear tires, rotated to the front at 15K, now has 50% left. As a result I have serious doubt in the 500 threadwear rating.The GLA250 isn’t a quiet car to begin with, but the tiers make the problem worse especially on concrete. Traction-wise they do well on wet or dry condition. Performance on compacted light snow is average.I would look into alternative when shopping for new tires.
