View the recommended tires for your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SL, plus helpful information about Mercedes-Benz 500SL tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Mercedes-Benz 500SL tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Mercedes-Benz 500SL snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Mercedes-Benz 500SL's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Mercedes-Benz 500SL to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in uneven road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Mercedes-Benz 500SL tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SL tire for your needs.

They make 8,000 different tires for all sorts of vehicles — including 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SLs.

Bridgestone is another smart move for Mercedes-Benz 500SL tires. In 1931, Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan.

  • Can I check the tread depth on my Mercedes-Benz tires at home? All you need is a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Mercedes-Benz 500SL tires.
