Often times, needing a wheel alignment or other mechanical services are needed prior to / or while having a new set of tires installed. This can usually be easily assessed while taking a look at your vehicle while its up on the hoist. If you are in need of a wheel alignment, this is definitely the time to have this performed.

To save you time and stress, we have listed many of the same general tire questions and concerns that our customers in the past have had.

How long should my new tires last me on my Mercedes Benz?

A new set of well-made tires should last you anywhere from three to five years. This is based upon the estimated 12,000-15,000 miles that most drivers put on their vehicle each and every year. Although this is subject to vary upon many different factors; generally speaking, your tires should last you many years.

What can I do to preserve my tires as long as possible on my Mercedes Benz?

Having regular wheel alignments helps to balance out the wear on the tires.

Checking your psi (tire pressure) regularly

Tire rotations

Having your brakes, rotors replaced when needed

Do the tires affect the smoothness of my drive on my Mercedes Benz?

Yes, your tires contribute to approximately half of your vehicles suspension. If your tires are worn, too big or small, or not inflated correctly, the smoothness of your drive will be compromised.

How unsafe is it to drive around with worn tires on my Mercedes Benz?

It is unfortunately very unsafe to drive around with worn tires as you no longer have the traction that you absolutely need in order to maintain vehicle stability and control.

Old tires no longer have the tread that you need in order to stay put on the road.

Without good tire tread, you have higher chances of a blow out or spin out in poor weather conditions.

In rainy weather, your chance of hydroplaning is incredibly high

How do I check my tire tread on my Mercedes Benz?

- A depth gauge used specifically for tires will measure how much tread is actually left. If you are unsure how to use one, you can always stop by and one of our technicians will take a look and access how soon you need to replace your tires. If you have a significant amount of tread left, new tires will not be needed quite yet. Otherwise, it is pertinent that you replace your tires as quickly as possible, so that your safety is never on the line.
