front loaded noise and ESP same time

Hi guys,

I have a problem with an SLK 200 manf. year 2006/10.

Recently I changed the two rear tires after 43.000 Kms with a Continental Sport Contact tires. I put a new pair of Dunlop Sport MAXX and I leaved the front tires. The size is front.-225/45 R17 rear 245/40 R17.

I picked my car and drove about 10 kms at 120/100 kms/h without no problem, but leaving the highway taking an exit I turn to the left a 225ş long curve at 80Kms more or less. Then a big noise comes on fron the front part of the car like a vibration and the yellow triangle flashing in the anounciator panel until I stopped the car.

After that I continued driving but nothing happend so I decided take a round with a continuously curve to the left and the noise comes again and the light (yellow light) also. Only it happend to the left in curve with banking.

I went to de dealer and they checked everything, brakes, suspension, stearing wheel, tires, diagnosis, and they only found the "direction box" defective but they don´t think this is the problem.

They also film a video and sent it to the technical specialist in Madrid.

I don´t know what to do more.

Is there anybody in the forum with a similar problem?

thank you in advance

Welcome from London via Houston, and I'm sure some of the R170 experts will chime in!

Just want to confirm a FLASHING ESP light, did you have any warning on the LCD or did you only have the ESP light?
