Which Pirelli's did you go with? I have 22,000 on my Continentals and they are worn out.I replaced my Continentals with a set of Pirrelli‘s. Not cheap but the handling difference is incredible. Feels like a totally different car. As a side not I got about 22,000 driving miles on the Continental and about 6,000 towed miles. We tow the Blazer behind our motorhome.
