Your tires provide traction on the road, affect your comfort, and even play a role in your Mercedes’ aesthetic. They’re critical to your safety, as well. However, your tires will wear out over time – or you might experience a blowout on the road. When that happens, it’s important that you know a few things about Mercedes Benz tire replacement around Fort Lauderdale.
First, let’s explore some of the most common reasons you might need to replace a tire, or even all four tires.
Normal Wear: All tires will wear out given enough time and driving. Every time the tire turns against the pavement, it loses a small amount of rubber from the tread. Eventually, the tread will become so shallow that it is unsafe. The legal tread depth limit is 2/32nd but we recommend replacing your tires before they get to that point simply for safety and peace of mind.
Failure to Rotate: Rotating your tires helps to keep normal tread wear even across all four tires. Your drive tires will wear much faster than the non-drive tires. Rotating them helps spread that wear out and increase their lifespan. If you fail to rotate them adequately, you’ll find that the two drive tires need to be replaced much earlier than the other two. However, the non-drive tires will likely be in poor condition, too, due to scalloping or feathering across the tread.
Alignment Problems: If your vehicle is out of alignment, you can expect your tires to wear abnormally. You’ll usually notice this as edge wear on either the inner or outer edge and it can be quite severe, eating down to the steel belts in a very short time. In this instance, you’ll need to replace the damaged tires but also have your vehicle aligned. We recommend a wheel alignment once per year as part of routine maintenance for your Mercedes Benz.
Incorrect Inflation: Your tires need air to roll across the road’s surface. However, they need just the right amount. If the air pressure is too high or too low, it causes problems with ride quality, performance, and in particular with tire life. Low tire pressure is usually seen as wear on both the inner and outer edges of the tire. High tire pressure shows as abnormal wear across the center of the tread. Both can result in premature failure and the need for Mercedes Benz tire replacement here in Fort Lauderdale.
Blowouts: Blowouts can be caused by any of the situations above, but also by encountering objects and debris in the road. In some cases, a flat tire can be repaired, but many others will require a full replacement instead.
