Just put a set of Continental DW tires on our SLK55 - had Pirellis on it when we bought it. Changing the tires and an alignment to my specs (0 toe all around), the difference is night and day. While the Pirellis had decent grip, they were very harsh. The Continentals are much more compliant with similar, if not slightly better, grip and as a result the ride is much smoother with a lot less rattling, etc. My wife, who usually can't tell much in the way of ride/handling changes, even noticed the difference right away. If you feel like your AMG's ride is too harsh, and don't need ultimate grip, I highly recommend giving a set of DW tires a shot.
