Common Issues on the Mercedes Benz C240 Wheels

Wheels do not usually cause huge problems in your vehicle but when they do, it almost always demands immediate attention. Most of the time, identifying problems on the wheels of your Mercedes Benz C240 would only requires visual inspection. However, there are also times when problems manifest while you are driving. The bad thing is there are a lot of people who do not really have an idea on the most common signs of problems on the wheel assembly. So to help you determine troubles and find out what you need to fix them, here is a list of some of the most common issues with regards to the Mercedes Benz C240 wheels:

Wheel alignment

When your wheels are misaligned, the car will tend to uncontrollably swerve from one side to another. This can be very dangerous, especially if you are driving in high speed. This may be caused by an improper alignment of your car's front wheels, and can be fixed by simply re-adjusting the way they are mounted. But make sure that the problem is really on the wheels before changing their positioning because there are also times when the problem is caused by the tie rod assembly, wheel bearings, or some components of the suspension system.

Wobbly wheels

Having unstable wheels is another common indicator of damage on your car. This may be another result of misaligned wheels, but may also be caused by a problem on the lug nuts or the ball joint of your Mercedes Benz C240. You will notice that your wheels are wobbly when you feel some sort of shaking on your car. It usually happens on the front end of the vehicle, and may be solved by tightening the lug nuts or getting the wheels realigned properly.

Uneven tire wear

Although abnormal or premature tire wear is often caused by busted struts or shock absorbers, there are also a number of times when the problem is caused by your Mercedes Benz C240 wheels. This happens when you are using an incorrect size of wheels on your car, and also when they are not aligned or balanced properly. Tires are considered unevenly worn out when the signs of wear are only found on one side of the tires. A quick solution to this is getting wheels that are perfect for your car, and making sure all the other components of the system are functioning well.

  • How to Prolong the Life of Your Mercedes Benz C240 Wheels

    The constant movement of a vehicle, like the Mercedes Benz C240, is greatly affected by the condition of its wheels. If the wheels are not in perfect shape, it might affect the whole performance of the car in a negative way. This is why it is very important for you to keep them in great condition at all times. For the simplest and most cost-efficient ways to prolong the life of your Mercedes Benz C240 wheels, here's what you should do:

    Proper cleaning

    Clean your wheels regularly.

    Make it a point to schedule a cleaning day for your wheels at least once a week to get rid of dirt and various road particles that may be stuck within their spokes and wedges. But if you have a very busy schedule, you can do the cleaning every other week. Surely, the wheels will get dirty again right after you take your Mercedes Benz C240 out. But it would be better if they stay cleaner than your tires after a whole day of driving in muddy and watery areas.

    Use a mild soap and water solution.

    When cleaning your wheels, the best solution to use would be a mixture of mild soap and water. As much as possible, avoid using detergent or various cleaners with high acid content when removing dirt on your wheels. Use a mild soap, instead, so you can clean the wheels without damaging their outer coating.

    Apply wax or sealant after cleaning.

    After the cleaning process, you can also apply a generous coating of wax or sealant on your wheels to keep them shiny and looking good as new. Although this may be optional, the wax adds to the decorative purposes of wheels. At the same time, it protects the wheels from scratches and makes cleaning so much easier. However, make sure that the wheels have been cooled down before applying wax as it may cause discoloration when applied on hot wheels.

    Other important tips

    Steer clear of steam wash.

    If you have a very busy schedule that you can't find time to clean the wheels of your Mercedes Benz C240 at home, make sure that you have it cleaned by other people using cold water. Getting a steam wash for your wheels can damage their finish and coating due to the high temperature.
