    Dear members,

    I have to buy new tyres for my X300 1997 Executive.

    Which ones do you prefer? 225/60 or 225/55


    Thanks for your help!!

    I've got to replace the 225/60s on mine soon. They certainly soak up the bumps and potholes on my local roads and give a very comfortable ride.
