TOP 3 WINTER TIRE TIPS YOU NEED TO KNOW

BY: MICHAL PILARSKI- SUPERVISOR, RETAIL AND ACCESSORIES, MERCEDES BENZ BURLINGTON

 
Locate the “MO” Marking – One of the biggest misconceptions with winter tires is that they are all the same, but this is not true. The tire you find at Costco is not the tire you would find with us. There are a lot more safety engineered to our tires compared to the tires you would purchase at your local tire shop. All of our winter tires have the “MO” (Mercedes Original) stamp of approval, meaning that Mercedes-Benz and the tire manufacturer spend months if not years developing the tire together. This means you get a tailor-made tire designed to stop, accelerate, corner and ultimately perform as you would expect with your Mercedes-Benz. Only Mercedes-Benz Authorized dealerships are allowed to sell and provide “MO” or “MOE” (Run flat) Winter tires.

Winter tire Packages – Winter tire packages provide greater safety and protection in the winter. Aside from saving your summer/all-season wheels from pot-holes and salt filled winter roads, our winter wheels usually have a thinner contact patch with the road compared to your summer set. This enables you to slice through snow and make contact with the road, as opposed to just placing winter tires on your summer wheels which can act like a “snow shoe” and climb on top of the snow.

4Matic & all season tires – Customers often ask if it’s worth getting winter tires. As advanced as our 4-matic all-wheel drive system is, it can only do so much in an emergency situation. All wheel drive is great for getting out and moving, but when it comes to braking and slowing the vehicle down, it all comes down to brakes and tires. Having the right type of tire for the road conditions may prevent the next fender bender.
