WONDER WHAT YOUR VEHICLE IS WORTH Find Out
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.
Read on to learn about Mercedes-Benz tires, and then once you see the advantage of Mercedes-Benz rims and tires, get in touch with our parts department to explore our diverse selection of Mercedes-Benz rims and tires for sale in greater Niagara.
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.
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.
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.
