1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Wheel Alignment

Why Is Mercedes-Benz 500SL Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Mercedes-Benz 500SL’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Mercedes-Benz intended. 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. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL, we’ll perform an alignment check first. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Mercedes-Benz’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 500SL

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Mercedes-Benz 500SL alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your 500SL dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does an Alignment for Mercedes-Benz 500SL Cost?

Mercedes-Benz 500SL wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL wheel alignment estimate.
