I bought my 300C in 04 (2005 Model, paid sticker, had to have it) the Conti's were toast at 20K, put on Goodrich somethings with the tread that looks like snake scales, you see them on trick my truck etc. Toast in 20K, noisy and vibrated but they looked really cool. Did Goodyear Assurance, 25K and they are almost gone. Moral of the story, get a 60K treadwear guarantee, at 25K, get a new pair at half price. I'm in S. Florida, they tell me it's the worst treadware area in the US. Other than tire destruction, love the car. 65K on the odo and I'm still happy

I'm in SoFl also, on my 2nd, 300C. OEM Conti's got 13,500, twice. Got a new car w/Goodyear Assurance and got 30K+. The heat and shell 'rock' in the asphalt here eats tires. Trying Bridgestone's now. Love the car, am looking forward to 2011 and the new body style!

Heard the latest tires being gobbled up by Chrysler dealer for the wear problem is the Michelin Primacy. Anyone have them yet/ Apparently a whole new rubber compound.

Hi I have a 300 Touring 2007 that has about 30,000 on a set of Goodyear
Intergrity tires. Looks to have at least 60-70% left on the tread. Not sure
if they are originals or not I bought the car with 24,000 on it...So far-so good.

You should be fine . The 300c with 18 inch are the nasty problem. OEM was Continental. 20,000 clicks and they were toast on the front end.Firestones didn't do much better. Three sets of tires burnt off at 77,000 kilometers!!! (45,000 miles to my American cousins) Bought the New Michelins. keep you all posted.

Just checking in to let folks know how the Cooper CS4s are working out on the 300C. Now at 32,000 miles and a good bit of tread left above the wear marker bars. So much better than the original Continentals were!

I HAD AN 06 300 C WITH CONTI'S ON IT. HAD TO REPLACE 2 FRONT AT 18,000--THE 2 REARS AT 26,000 MILES. I GOT A LETTER IN THE MAIL THAT THERE WAS A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST CONTI. I FILLED OUT THE FORM FOR A REIMBURSEMENT LAST SEPTEMBER. THEY SAID I DIDN'T GIVE THEM ENOUGH INFO. I GAVE THEM 2 BILLS FROM 2 DIFFERENT CHRYSLER DEALERS--THEY EVEN HAVE THE TIME OF DAY ON THEM. I MAILED THEM THE FORM AGAIN. STILL HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING. HAS ANYBODY HEARD ABOUT THIS--OR MAYBE ITS A SCAM.

At least you heard something. I sent in two claims, (one for each of my 300C's) and have yet to hear anything at all. I expected to get back about $80.00 for each claim, but it has been over a year now and not a word. I have copies of everything I sent, including phone numbers. I will call to inquire what the hold up is... I bought Michelins (two sets), and they are the exact same size as what BMW puts on their SUV. They are run flats, and grip like magnets.
