If there is one form of regular vehicle maintenance that drivers tend to skip over, it's the tire rotation. Once you've had your oil change and an inspection to ensure the rest of the vehicle is good to go, it's easy to look at a simple rotation of the tires as being pointless.

Why are tire rotations so important? That's a question we hear a lot. The key reason all vehicles should receive frequent tire rotations is to reduce uneven tire wear. Naturally, your tires tend to not wear evenly over time. Therefore, moving the tires to different positions on the vehicle will help to ensure that the same tires don't always receive the most tread wear. This helps your tires last longer, and can even boost gas mileage or provide a more comfortable riding experience. Moreover, when you rotate your tires, the vibrations that can occur from uneven wear are reduced, which is good news for your suspension system.
How Often Should Your Tires Be Rotated?
The owner's manual for your Mercedes-Benz should be able to provide an exact estimate on how often your tires should be rotated, and we can do the same here at Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert. That being said, a good rule of thumb is to look at rotating your tires every time you get your oil changed. You may be used to hearing a rule that stated to get them rotated every other oil change, but since cars now go longer between oil changes, it seems like a good time to update the rule to every single oil change.
