Getting a flat tire is always a hassle. And while your new or pre-owned Mercedes-Benz is a pinnacle of vehicular excellence, it’s not invulnerable to nasty impacts and sharp objects the road can have. So today, we want to inform our customers how you can fix a flat tire, and what Mercedes-Benz of St. Charles can do to help.

If you’re driving when you get a flat tire, you need to make sure that you bring your vehicle to a slow and safe stop. Ideally, this will be in a place with low traffic so you can walk around your vehicle safely. From there, locate the spare kit, which usually is composed of a spare tire, hand jack, and tire iron. Unlock and loosen the lug nuts on the flat tire, then use the jack to lift the frame of your Mercedes-Benz so you can remove your tire. Put the spare on, adjusting the jack as needed, and then hand-tighten the lug nuts. Once they’re on, you can drop the jack and use your tire iron to secure the lug nuts.

From there, you need to drive to our St. Charles, IL Mercedes-Benz dealership. Our experienced technicians and experts will provide you with a brand-new tire or wheel, as well as take a look at your vehicle for other damage that may have been sustained by the accident. Remember, our Mercedes-Benz service center is always ready to provide top-of-the-line service and care to your Mercedes to make sure it’s as prepared as it can be when these unfortunate accidents happen.
