when the car becomes old is difficult find the tyres because year after year the tyre size changes ....
Personally if you prefere comfort can be continental , if you prefere sport and good I think is better brigestone (Exp S01) or pirelli (P0; directional asimmetric).
On my 550 i had Exp S02 255/40 18 & 295/35 18 and they was fantastic, after i had install Bridg. RE050A (because S02 not disponible in europe) and also them is good.
For my impression drive, S02 has a soft mixes rubber in respect to RE050A.
In my actual HGTC I have RE050A 255/35 19 & 305/30 19 and they are over in respect to the RE050 A that i had in 550.
In my mercedes i had RE050A and now i have Continental SC3 245/45 18 & 275/40 18 , bridgestone have better handling and an hard shoulder, conti have a soft shoulder (relative soft) very low noise level.
At the end i prefer conti in my MB and Bridg. in Ferrari.
I hope I'm useful for you .... but ask to your tyre shop.
If you want I can ask an offer by my friend tyre shop where I go.
