What brand of tires did your C-Class come with?

Just got my C200 Kompressor Avantgarde yesterday. It came with a stock Dunlop Sport SP2020 225/50R16 tires.

Questions:
1) Did any of you get Dunlops with your C-Class? If not, what tires did you car come with?
2) Are these Dunlop tires OK? I would have wanted Michelins instead.

Thanks in advance for your help.

C-Class Newbie

My coupe came with 16" Michilen MXV4 Plus all seasons. I'm gonna replace with 17.5" wheels and Michilen Pilot series tires. I've driven on many different brands of tires: Pirelli, Dunlops, Continentals, Yokohama, Toyo. In my opinion, the best tires are Michilen Pilot series. They wear really fast if you drive agressively (5,000 to 7,000 miles, that's it!) but they offer the highest performance for the money. My second choice would be Yoko's (most economical, relatively high performance) If you don't drive agressively, just go for the cheapest tire you can find.

Huh? Never heard of 17.5" wheels for the MB, or any other car for that matter.

I got the Continentals too. C7 Package. I love the look but they don't wear as well as I hoped.
