Having been St. Charles, IL Mercedes-Benz dealers as long as we’ve been, local drivers rely on us for a lot of things, which is something we’re quite proud of. Motorists count on us to help them find a new luxury car when they’re looking for a Mercedes-Benz vehicle for sale, for example. They also turn to us for advice about tire care.

One topic a lot of people ask us about is how they can prolong the life of their tires. Making your tires last as long as possible can go a long way toward keeping your overall ownership costs as low as possible.

Monitoring the air pressure in your tires is one of the most basic things motorists can do to extend their tires’ lifespan. When tires have too much or too little air inside, they’ll wear unevenly and burn out faster. To avoid those things, you should make it a point to check the air pressure in your tires at the start or end of every month. If the outside temperature is swinging from one extreme to the other from one day to the next, you may want to check your air pressure more often.

While you can monitor your air pressure on your own, some of the other tasks involved with tire care are best left in the hands of the experts in our Mercedes-Benz service department near Wayne, IL. Tire rotations and inspections and adjusting your alignment are some of the things we’ll do to prevent your tires from wearing prematurely.
