What Can You Do for Your Tires This Summer?
In a blog post we shared during spring, we encouraged drivers near our Van Nuys, CA Mercedes-Benz dealership to get caught up with any routine maintenance or repairs their car needed during National Car Care Month. Although several months have passed, we’re once again recommending that you bring your vehicle into our Mercedes-Benz service center.
Now that summer is here, it’s a great time to let our factory-trained technicians inspect your tires. It’s especially important to have your tires checked out by a professional if you’re going to take a road trip this summer.
Your tires are the only parts on your automobile that remain in contact with the road. This makes them crucial to your ability to stay safe on the road. If your tires are worn, they may not be able to retain a sufficient grip on the roadway when the weather’s bad and the roads are slippery, putting you at risk for an accident.
If the temperature changes just 10 degrees Fahrenheit, your tires can gain or lose one PSI. When your tires aren’t inflated properly, it can have a negative influence on your vehicle’s fuel economy by forcing you to fill up more often than you’d have to with properly inflated tires. Tires with the wrong amount of air pressure are also in danger of wearing out prematurely. If you have to replace your tires early multiple times over the course of your vehicle’s life, it can unnecessarily drive up your cumulative ownership costs.
There’s no reason for you to take any chances on the road or pay more to own and operate your vehicle. You can avoid doing those things simply by making an appointment to bring your car into our Mercedes-Benz service center near Encino, CA so we can inspect and care for your tires.
