Proper tire care is an easy process, once you understand it. It is best to check the tire pressure of each tire once the car has been sitting for a number of hours, so the tires are cold. You may not have heard of that before, but it will give you a precise reading. If checking the tires when they are heated after driving car can actually hide a low-pressured tire. It is a good idea to check the Mercedes Benz owner’s manual to be certain the tires are being inflated accurately.
Did you know the number one tire failure is tires that are under-inflated? If the tires are under-inflated, there can be problems like tread separation and even unfortunate blow-outs, shortened life-span for the tire and be less efficient with the fuel. Tires that are under-inflated tires should be dealt with right away.
At any time you notice one of your tires is damaged or worn, it should be replaced right away. This is why consistently checking the condition of the tires is highly recommended. It is so you will be able to spot any budges, nicks or cracks in the tire.
It is recommended by our Sacramento Mercedes Benz maintenance and repair shop to have the tires rotated about every 7,000 miles to make certain that all of the tires wear at the same rate.
