Why Does Your Mercedes Need a Tire Rotation?

February 26th, 2020 by

Tire rotation is just one of the many services you can have performed at your Mercedes-Benz dealer in New Jersey. As your vehicle racks up more miles, the tires will wear down slightly. At some point, it’s important to replace them completely, but by rotating them, you can extend the life. At Mercedes-Benz of Cherry Hill, we want to ensure that you understand how important tire rotation is to your car.

Why You Must Rotate the Tires

The more miles you drive, the faster your tires will wear out. However, the weight of your vehicle isn’t perfectly distributed, so parts of the tire are going to wear out faster than others. Some people wait until one or two tires are completely worn out and then replace all the tires, but there’s a better way. With a tire rotation, you can switch the placement so the tires last longer. This service allows the tires to wear evenly over time.

For the best results, you should have a tire rotation with each oil change, approximately every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.

Do You Need New Tires?

Once you’ve pushed your tires to the limit, it’s time to think about replacement. There are a few signs that tire replacement is required. If you notice any bulges or cracks in the tires, you must replace them immediately. Looking at the tread also helps you determine the tire health. Some tires have an indicator that shows you when it’s too low; others need to be checked with a penny. If you put the penny into the tread upside down, you shouldn’t be able to see Lincoln’s head. If you can, it’s time for tire replacement.
