What To Do If You Get A Flat Tire

Princeton Area Mercedes-Benz Drivers Are Always Prepared

When the unfortunate event of a flat tire occurs, Mercedes-Benz has always made sure our customers are well-prepared with the ultimate safety and convenience. Your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is either equipped with run flat tires, a tire fit mobility kit, or a spare tire.

Additionally, your model includes a tire pressure monitoring system complete with sensors in each wheel. If your tire is flat, the system will display a tire malfunction warning on the dash cluster. In this instance, you should pull the vehicle over to a safe place on the side of the road.

If your vehicle has run flat tires and if there’s no visible damage to the tire, you may be able to continue driving, but you should not surpass 50 mph. You can drive on a run flat tire for up to 50 miles after getting an alert, but it’s important that you receive tire service on your Mercedes-Benz vehicle as soon as possible. If there is visible damage to the tire, however, call roadside assistance immediately.

If your model has a tire fit mobility kit, you’ll be able to use the sealant to seal the tire, and the air compressor will come in handy to fill the tire back up. Please note, this is a temporary fix, and our Mercedes-Benz dealership near Princeton encourages you to schedule service right away. Moreover, if you have a spare tire, follow tire removal and tire jack procedures included with the spare, or call roadside assistance if you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself.
