WARNING
Regularly check the tires for damage.

Damaged tires can cause tire inflation pressure loss. As a result, you could lose control of your vehicle.

Worn, old tires can cause accidents. If the tire tread is worn to minimum tread depth, or if the tires have sustained damage, replace them.

R Regularly check the wheels and tires of your vehicle for damage at least once a month, as well as after driving off-road or on rough roads. Damage includes bulges and deformation on tires, cuts, punctures, cracks or severe corrosion on wheels, for example. Damaged wheels can cause a loss of tire pressure.

Х Regularly check the tire tread depth and the condition of the tread across the whole width of the tire . In order to inspect the inner side of the tire surface, turn the steering wheel to full lock.

Х All wheels must have a valve cap to protect the valve against dirt and moisture. Do not install anything onto the valve other than the standard valve cap or a valve cap approved by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle.

Do not install anything onto the valve, such as tire pressure monitoring systems.

Х You should regularly check the pressure of all your tires including the spare wheel, particularly prior to long trips. Adjust the tire pressure as necessary .

The service life of tires depends, among other things, on the following factors: Х Driving style Х Tire pressure Х Distance covered
