Mercedes-Benz Recommended Tires

Mercedes-Benz A Class Sedan

Not every manufacturer has its own brand of factory-approved tires, but at Mercedes-Benz, our design ethos demands perfection. The parts of your Mercedes-Benz model are balanced out in perfect synergy, and in order to achieve that balance and fine-tune the performance of your vehicle to make it particularly “Mercedes-Benz,” we’ve even designed our own tires.

Mercedes-Benz Extended Tires vs. Run-Flat Tires

Mercedes-Benz collaborated with several tire manufacturers to design the perfect tire for Mercedes-Benz models. Mercedes-Benz recommended tires feature an MOE signature on the sidewall to indicate that they’re specifically designed for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Brands that sell MOE tires include: Bridgestone, Continental, Dunlop, Goodyear, Michelin, and Pirelli.

Mercedes-Benz tires are unique because they have “run-flat like characteristics.” What’s the difference between that and typical run-flats? MOE tires cannot be designated by the International Organization for Standardization as run-flat tires. Typical run-flat tires allow you to drive up to 80 km in a vehicle bearing light, medium, or heavy loads. Where Mercedes-Benz differs is that our run-flat like tires can only take you 30 km in a lightly loaded vehicle (there are certain MOE tires designed by Michelin that do qualify as run-flat, but that’s another conversation).

You may be confused as to why we just told you that Mercedes-Benz tires have less temporary mobility than traditional run-flats. Keep reading.

Why Buy Mercedes-Benz Tires Over Traditional Run-Flats?

Most Niagara-on-the-Lake who get a flat will be within 30 km of a tire shop. In the event that you get a puncture in a truly remote area, it’s unlikely that an extra 20 km of temporary mobility will make a huge difference. Also, the average vehicle carries a light load, so 99% of the time, the more flexible weight restrictions of traditional run-flat tires are unlikely to benefit you.

That’s where Mercedes-Benz engineers saw an opportunity. They decided to sacrifice some weight flexibility and mileage from the run-flat design to improve handling, fuel economy, and cargo space.

  • Improved Handling: We felt that run-flat tires made the handling of our vehicles overly firm, so we reduced their size to improve the spryness of your ride.
  • Improved Fuel Economy: Smaller tires means reduced vehicle weight. When we retooled the run-flat design to offer you more lyrical handling, we also made sure to take advantage of the size reduction to increase fuel economy.
  • Improved Cargo Space: Lighter, smaller tires meant that we were able to decrease the size of the wheel well and increase the trunk space.
  • All-season: Winter or Summer, your wheels remain highly tractable, regardless of the roads you drive on.

While Mercedes-Benz recommended tires aren’t official run-flat, we think they offer Pelham drivers the essential perks of run-flat tires while diminishing the disadvantages.
