A tire rotation is one of the most common services you will ever have done to your Mercedes-Benz. We recommend that you get your tires rotated during every other oil change, or so. The technician literally removes your tires and places them on different spots on the axle. This helps to ensure that every part of your tire wears evenly. If you don’t get your tires rotated, they will need to be replaced much sooner than necessary.
Your wheel alignment is essential to maintaining even wear of your tires. You should get your alignment checked at least once a year. Vehicles naturally become misaligned over time, and if it gets bad enough, it can be very difficult to drive in a straight line. An alignment service can fix that problem immediately, and again, properly aligned wheels will help your tires wear down more evenly.
You should also remember to check your tire pressure once a week or once every other week. Underinflated tires can hinder your fuel economy and overinflated tires are more susceptible to popping. Bring your vehicle to Mercedes of Salem if you have additional concerns about your tires!
