Tire Rotation

Your vehicle's tires are a critical component of overall vehicle performance and vehicle stability. On models
with four same-size tires, we suggest tire rotation at every maintenance service, and at least once in between
each one following the recommendations in the literature provided by the tire manufacturer and depending on
tire wear.

If your vehicle's front and rear tires are different sizes (so they cannot be rotated), Foreign Autohäus will inspect them and adjust their pressure for you.

1 Whichever comes first. Requires use of 229.5-spec oil and high-performance fleece oil filter. Every 10,000
miles for V-12 and AMG models. Driver is responsible for monitoring fluid levels and tire pressures between
service visits.

2 If your vehicle's front and rear tires are different sizes (so they cannot be rotated), your dealer will inspect
them and adjust their pressure for you.
