Recommended tire pressure for Mercedes-Benz 300SL
It is important to maintain proper tire pressure for Mercedes-Benz 300SL tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation, and high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can compromise tire safety, cause tire blowout, decrease fuel efficiency, cause uneven tire wear and reduce tire tread life. Check Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire pressure regularly, and monitor Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire inflation levels to avoid driving with overinflated or underinflated tires.
Tire inflation value listed on tire sidewall is a maximum tire pressure the tire can be inflated to, and not the recommended tire pressure for Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Use recommended tire pressure listed on the tire pressure chart found on a sticker on driver's door jam or in Mercedes-Benz 300SL manual. Recommended tire pressure for your Mercedes-Benz 300SL tires will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your Mercedes-Benz 300SL may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires. Keep your Mercedes-Benz 300SL tires inflated at recommended tire pressure levels at all times for your driving comfort and safety.
If you replace Mercedes-Benz 300SL original equipment tires with optional tire sizes or you switch to plus size tires, make sure to follow guidelines for the application of load and inflation tables to find proper tire pressure for new tires on your Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Mercedes-Benz 300SL tires with the same load index, regardless of tire size, may carry the same load, but not always, and they may require substantially different inflation pressures. Tire load index may not be used independently to determine replacement tire acceptability for load capacity. An equal or greater load index does not always correspond to equal or greater load capacity at all inflation pressure settings.
Always refer to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of Mercedes-Benz 300SL replacement tires.
Mercedes-Benz 300SL replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your Mercedes-Benz 300SL speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your Mercedes-Benz 300SL replacement tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, the vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires.
Original equipment tires that come on your Mercedes-Benz 300SL will have the proper tire load index, so stick to that number or higher when you replace them with new tires. Tire load index tells you how much weight your tire can carry. Putting too much weight on your tires will overload them, and can cause tire damage, premature tire wear or even tire blowout. Refer to your Mercedes-Benz 300SL manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and their load ratings.
Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire pressure changes with temperature, so check your Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire pressure when outside temperature goes up or down. During colder months when temperatures drop, Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire pressure will decrease also by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Maintain proper Mercedes-Benz 300SL winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.
Mercedes-Benz 300SL tire pressure should be checked when tires are cold, after your vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours. It is best to check your tire inflation pressure in the morning, after the vehicle has been parked overnight, using a reliable tire pressure gauge.
If your Mercedes-Benz 300SL is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on. Ensure your tire pressure sensors are working properly to stay alert and enjoy a safe ride. If your tire pressure warning light is on, check front and rear tires to make sure they are properly inflated.
