Your Mercedes-Benz model is designed to deliver a remarkable driving experience that keeps you safe while providing exceptional luxury. Misaligned wheels can cause your entire drive to be compromised. You may have to constantly correct course as you drive, increasing fatigue and making the experience worse. What's more, a momentary lapse of concentration can cause your Mercedes-Benz to veer into the wrong lane or onto a curb. If your wheels stay misaligned for too long, your tires can wear out prematurely. When your vehicle needs to have its wheels aligned, we recommend that you come to Silver Star Motors, your local Mercedes-Benz service center near Queens and Astoria, New York.
When you come to Silver Star Motors for wheel alignment service, our technicians will inspect the suspension elements of your Mercedes-Benz. They will also check the camber, toe, and caster angles of your wheels. The camber angle refers to the wheels' inward or outward tilt when viewed from the front or rear of your vehicle, and the toe angle refers to the wheels' tilt when viewed from above or below. The camber angle measures the difference between the steering axis and a vertical line. If any of these angles is not properly aligned, our technicians will use precision instruments to return the wheels to their factory specified alignment.
If you drive a vehicle with a solid rear axle, it will likely only need two-wheel alignment.
Vehicles with independent rear suspension, on the other hand, will require all four wheels to be aligned.
The wheels on your Mercedes-Benz start out perfectly aligned; however, the various bumps and jolts of daily driving can slowly knock the wheels out of alignment. In addition, hitting larger potholes or curbs can knock your wheels out of alignment faster.
