View Mercedes-Benz-recommended tires for your 1990 300SL, plus important information about Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”
Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Mercedes-Benz 300SL tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Mercedes-Benz 300SL snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.
When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Mercedes-Benz 300SL's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!
Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Mercedes-Benz 300SL far away from civilization? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want strong tires that can take on gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in irregular road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Mercedes-Benz 300SL tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire for your needs.
