Tire Rotation and Alignment in Salem, OR
If it's time to rotate the tires on your Mercedes-Benz vehicle, or maybe the tire needs to be realigned, the highly-trained and certified technicians here at Mercedes-Benz of Salem are here to help. While rotating tires isn't the most complicated of services, many people simply do not have the time needed to rotate tires themselves. We understand that here at Mercedes-Benz of Salem, and that's why we're here to help. Simply drop off your Mercedes-Benz vehicle before work, take advantage of our great shuttle service, and pick your vehicle up at lunch or when your work day is finished. If you want, we can also realign your tires while we've got them off.
When realigning the tires on your Mercedes-Benz vehicle, our technicians look at three major components. The first component is the camber. This is the inward or outward angle of your tire when viewed from the front. If your tire has too much inward or outward tilt, it can indicate an improper alignment and should be adjusted accordingly. Failure to do so can result in uneven tire wear. The second component our technicians look at is the toe alignment. This is a bird's-eye view of how your tires look. If your tires are not angled the same way when looking from above, they should be properly aligned. The final component our technicians look at while aligning the tires on your Mercedes-Benz vehicle in the caster. Caster helps to balance your steering, stability, and cornering. Improper caster can lead steering tilting either towards you, or away from you while you're driving.
