Tires are an important part of your vehicle helping to keep you driving straight on the road and as well as helping with braking and traction during wet and snowy conditions. Unsure if your tires need replaced? The following are some examples of when your tires need replaced. Tread depth: One way to check for worn tires is to measure the tires tread depth. When your vehicle's tread depth is less than 2/32 of an inch deep then it is time to replace your tires. Tread wear indicator bars: Many tires have built-in tread wear indicator bars that become visible when the tire tread has worn down to a certain point. These bars can usually be found in the grooves between the tire tread blocks. If the bars are visible, it's time to replace your tires. Uneven wear: If your tires are worn unevenly, it may indicate an alignment or suspension problem. Look for signs of cupping, feathering, or uneven wear on the tire tread. Age: Even if your tires look fine, they may still be worn if they are too old. Most tire manufacturers recommend replacing tires after six years, regardless of their condition. If you notice any of these signs, then be sure to schedule with one of our service departments here at Mercedes-Benz of Quad Cities to get a new set of tires put on your vehicle.
You should inspect your tires regularly for signs of wear and damage. If you notice any significant tread wear, cracks or bulges it might be time to replace your tires. If you are unsure, just give us a call at (563)-445-4305 and we will get your vehicle in for an inspection.
We recommend replacing all four tires for optimal performance, however, if only one tire is damaged or worn we can just replace that tire. Keep in mind that mismatched tires can affect handling and traction.
To extend the life of your tires, make sure to maintain proper tire inflation, rotate them regularly, and have them balanced and aligned as needed. Avoid aggressive driving, excessive braking, and driving on poorly maintained roads whenever possible.
Wheel alignment service is an important task to prevent your car tires from being damaged incorrectly. The wheels of your car are supposed to be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other but fail to align over time. At Mercedes-Benz of Quad Cities, one of our certified technicians will use special tools to measure the wheel angle and make adjustments as needed to ensure proper alignment. This usually involves adjusting the wheel camber, caster, and toe angle to the manufacturer’s specification.
