Theo's Top Tips: Caring for tyre, brake and suspension wear.

When considering the life of your tyres, brake and suspension in your Mercedes-Benz you wouldn't want to drive in a way that would wear them out prematurely, would you?

Speedbumps and pot holes are two main contributors for early wear of tyres, brakes and the suspension. There is a 20-30% increase in wear by approaching speed bumps to fast or by not avoiding pot holes.

To avoid premature wear on tyres, brakes and suspension, I recommend slowing right down when approaching speedbumps and proceeding with caution. I also recommend paying attention to the road to avoid pot holes all together. Modern cars are designed to brake quickly, but approaching a speedbump at a fast pace is not the best way to test this out.

If you’re at all concerned about your Mercedes-Benz brakes or suspension call 3397 7158 to either talk to myself or to make a booking so we can carry out a check over for you.

Drive careful, take care.

I asked Aust Star Motors to do a thorough and careful job – and they did not disappoint. I took the car for a 30 kilometer drive after the service was done, and I was pleasantly surprised. The engine ran smoothly and quietly, idled well, and climbed hills effortlessly. There were no warning lights or unexpected surprises.  Overall I thought it ran better than it did before, despite a fairly major engine overhaul. The car was even washed when I picked it up, another pleasant surprise.
