If you're ready to change the tires on your Mercedes-Benz, you'll have plenty of options to consider. Mercedes-Benz of Ann Arbor has a wide selection of different tire types. Each kind of tire yields its own performance.

All-Season Tires: All-season tires are designed to do a bit of everything, as their name implies. Most new vehicles come standard with a set of all-season tires. From cool spring rain to mid-summer heat, all-season tires can handle a wide variety of weather conditions. However, as temperatures dip below freezing, their effectiveness wanes.

Winter/Snow Tires: Winter and snow tires are designed with rubber compounds and tread patterns that maintain grip in sub-freezing weather. Many drivers in Michigan choose to switch to winter tires as the cold time of year approaches. However, their performance doesn't hold up in warmer temperatures.

Summer/Sport Tires: These kinds of tires are optimized for warm, dry conditions. They're particularly popular with sports cars to maximize traction during vigorous driving. Summer tires perform better in dry, hot conditions than all-seasons.

All-Terrain/Off-Road Tires: All-terrain tires are designed for more challenging terrain. From mud and snow to dirt and rocks, your all-terrain tires are ready to withstand abuse. They're typically installed on rugged SUV models as a modification.
