How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA Tire

Typically, a Mercedes-Benz tire rotation is performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Keep in mind that this is simply a rule that many Bellbrook drivers follow, and it’s recommended to refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific guidelines. If you’re wondering when to rotate tires and how often to rotate tires on a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, check out this guide below from our trusted service experts.

Mercedes-Benz Tire Rotation on FWD and RWD Vehicles

When it comes to front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles, it means where the power from the engine is sent. Front-wheel drive cars have the power sent to the front tires, and rear-wheel drive cars have it sent to the rear tires. The set of tires that get most of the engine power wears faster than the others. Below are some helpful rotation tips to keep in mind:

  • For FWD or RWD cars, have a tire rotation performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.
  • If you’re handling the FWD Mercedes-Benz tire rotation at home, remember to flip sides when moving the rear tires. For example, the rear right tire goes on the front left. However, when moving the front tires to the back, they stay on the same side.
  • When rotating tires on an RWD car, invert the process above. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back, but keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Also, consider how you drive. If you enjoy off-roading through Springboro, this affects how often a tire rotation is needed.

Don’t hesitate to further discuss these tips with our service experts at Mercedes-Benz of Centerville! It’s essential to create a maintenance schedule that’s best suited to your driving habits.

Mercedes-Benz Tire Rotation: AWD Vehicles

How often to rotate tires on a Mercedes-Benz AWD vehicle? AWD vehicles work slightly differently since each tire wears differently, and at different speeds.  Because of that, it’s best to have your tires rotated every 3,000 and 5,000 miles. If you’re unsure when your last tire rotation was, schedule a service appointment to have our certified service technicians inspect your tires to see if a rotation is needed.

Why Rotate Your Tires?

Tire rotations extend the life of your tires. Regular tire rotations give your vehicle additional benefits, such as:

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain

If you want to be prepared for hazardous weather around Oakwood, have your tire rotations a part of your maintenance plan.
