Day in and day out, your Mercedes-Benz tires go around and around. You might think, “they work fine”. That is because it is difficult to notice that your front tires wear faster than the rear tires. Most people don’t notice it until it is too late. That is why it is always important to rotate the tires on your Mercedes-Benz. Tire rotations ensure treads wear evenly and tires last longer.
How Often Should I Have Tire Rotations Done?
Tire rotations should be done every 3,000-5,000 miles, or as specified by the manufacturer. Typically, you should have this service performed with every oil change. That way, you can save yourself a trip and not have to worry about keeping a record of the service.
Why Can’t I Just Do It Myself?
While it is possible to switch the positioning of your car tires on your own, it is highly not recommended. It requires extra time and labor when you don’t have the right experience, skills, or tools. There’s more to a tire rotation service than simply changing the location on your Mercedes-Benz. At Romay’s Auto Service, our service technicians will perform other checks as well, including:
- Inspecting the tires for uneven wear patterns
- Measuring the tire tread depth
- Checking the air pressure in each tire and making adjustments if necessary
- Assessing the wear on brake pads, brake calipers, and other integral braking components behind the wheel
- Monitoring front-end alignment
- Looking to see if there are any signs of damage (ex. Nails, gashes, etc)
These are just several of the many advantages of bringing your vehicle to our auto service shop for a tire rotation. If your Mercedes-Benz is due for a tire service, please do not hesitate to call or visit Romay’s Auto Service today.
