Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL

How Does Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Mercedes-Benz intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Mercedes-Benz specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Mercedes-Benz recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Wheel Alignment

It’s wise to have your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your 500SEL dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
