Can you recommend any good for all seasons tires 235/50 R18?
The sensors attach to the inner-valve, not the wheel. If you buy your wheels from MB they normally come with the sensors fitted (mine did). Alternatively, yes, you don't have to fit TPMS sensors - they are an 'extra', not a requirement.You can use winter wheels without TPMS sensor?
That's good to know - tyre technology has come on leaps and bounds in recent years. However, I maintain that running just one set of tyres all year is not going to give you as good performance and safety as running both summer and winter tyres. Even Nokian are keen to point out the compromises between winter, all-weather and all-season tyres > https://www.kaltire.com/nokian-all-weather-tires-a-winter-tire-you-can-use-all-year-longI'm running nokian all weathers in that size. They match summer tyre spec (v rated) and have been excellent in all weather conditions. Absolutely no issues with tyre wear in the summer.
I'm sure you're rightA fair point about difference in grip, but high quality all weathers will usually beat cheaper summers in the summer...
jmblack, which model of Nokian all season tyres do you have? I can't see any on their website at 235/50 R18! ThanksI'm running nokian all weathers in that size. They match summer tyre spec (v rated) and have been excellent in all weather conditions. Absolutely no issues with tyre wear in the summer.
