Check Your Tires Before You Head Out

February 26th, 2018 by

Being that they are the only actual part of your vehicle which actually makes contact with the ground, making sure that your tires are in good condition should be high on your to-do list. Tires in good condition increase vehicle performance and add to the plus column of safety measures.

Sufficient tread on a tire has a few benefits. They allow you to displace water reducing the chance that your vehicle may hydroplane when its wet outside and it provides better handling while driving. You can use the penny test to check the state of your tires. If you place a penny head first into a groove on your tire and Lincoln’s head is completely visible, then the tread on your tire is less than 2/32 inch and should be replaced.

If your tires need replacing, then visit our service department at Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines. We are staffed and equipped to handle all of your service needs, and we’re conveniently located in Urbandale.
