Flat tire

Notes on flat tires

WARNING
Risk of accident due to a flat tire. A flat tire severely affects the driving characteristics as well as the steering and braking of the vehicle. Tires without run-flat characteristics:

  • Do not drive with a flat tire.
  • Change the flat tire immediately with an emergency spare wheel or spare wheel. Alternatively, consult a qualified specialist workshop.

Tires with run-flat characteristics:

  • Observe the information and warning notes on MO Extended tires (run-flat tires).
  • In the event of a flat tire, the following options are available depending on your vehicle’s equipment:
  • Vehicles with MO Extended tires: it is possible to continue the journey for a short period of time. Make sure you observe the notes on MO Extended tires (run-flat tires) (/ page 420).
  • Vehicles with a TIREFIT kit: you can seal the tire so that it is possible to continue the journey for a short period of time.
  • To do this, use the TIRE FIT kit (/ page 421).
  • Vehicles with Mercedes I connect: you can make a call for breakdown assistance via the overhead control panel in the case of a breakdown (/ page 384).
  • All vehicles: change the wheel (/ page 467).
  • The emergency spare wheel is only available in certain countries.

Notes on MO Extended tires (run-flat tires)

 WARNING
Risk of an accident when driving in lymphoma mode When driving in emergency mode the handling characteristics are impaired.

  • Do not exceed the specified maximum speed of the MO Extended tires.
  • Avoid any abrupt steering and driving maneuvers as well as driving over obstacles (curbs, potholes, off-road). This applies, in particular, to a loaded vehicle.
  • Stop driving in emergency mode if you notice:
  • Banging noise
  • Vehicle vibration
  • Smoke that smells like rubber
  • Continuous ESP® intervention
  • Cracks in the tire side walls
  • After driving in emergency mode, have the rims checked by a qualified specialist workshop with regard to their further use.
  • The defective tire must be replaced in every case. With MO Extended tires (run-flat tires), you can continue to drive your vehicle even if there is a total loss of pressure in one or more tires. However, the tire affected must not show any clearly visible damage.

You can recognize MO Extended tires by the MO Extended marking which appears on the side wall of the tire.
Vehicles with tire pressure monitoring system: MO Extended tires may only be used in conjunction with an activated tire pressure monitoring system.

If a pressure loss warning message appears in the driver’s display, proceed as follows:

  • Check the tire for damage.
  • If driving on, observe the following notes.
  • Driving distance possible in emergency mode after the pressure loss warning:
Load condition           Driving distance possible in emergency mode
Partially laden 50 miles (80 km)
Fully laden 19 miles (30 km)

The driving distance possible in emergency mode may vary depending on the driving style. Observe the maximum permissible speed of 50 mph (80 km/h). If a tire has gone flat and cannot be replaced with an MO Extended tire, you can use a standard tire as a temporary measure.

TIRE FIT kit storage location

Depending on the vehicle equipment, the storage bag for the TIRE FIT kit is located in the trunk or in the storage net on the left. Comply with the loading guidelines (/page 142).

Using the TIRE FIT kit Requirements

  • Tire sealant bottle and tire inflator compressor are ready for use (/ page 421).
  • TIREFIT sticker is present.
  • Gloves are present.
  • TIREFIT kit storage location: (/ page 421)
  • You can use TIREFIT tire sealant to seal perforation damage of up to 0.16 in (4 mm), especially in the tire tread. You can use TIREFIT in outside temperatures as low as -4°F (-20°C).

WARNING
Risk of an accident when using tires eland The tire sealant may be unable to seal the tire properly, especially in the following cases:

  • There are large cuts or punctures in the tire (larger than damage previously mentioned)
  • The wheel rims have been damaged
  • After journeys with very low tire pressure or with flat tires
  • Do not continue driving.
  • Consult a qualified specialist workshop.

WARNING
Risk of injury and poisoning from tire sealant The tire sealant is harmful and causes irritation. Do not allow it to come into contact with the skin, eyes or clothing, and do not swallow it. Do not inhale tire sealant fumes. Keep the tire sealant away from children.

If you come into contact with the tire sealant, observe the following:

  • Rinse off the tire sealant from your skin immediately using water.
  • If tire sealant gets into your eyes, thoroughly rinse out the eyes using clean water.
  • If tire sealant has been swallowed, immediately rinse out the mouth thoroughly and drink plenty of water. Do not induce vomiting and seek medical attention immediately.
  • Change out of any clothes contaminated with tire sealant immediately.
  • If allergic reactions occur, seek medical attention immediately.

NOTE
Overheating due to the tire inflation compressor running too long

  • Do not run the tire inflation compressor for longer than ten minutes without interruption. Comply with the manufacturer’s safety notes on the sticker on the tire inflation compressor. Have the tire sealant bottle replaced at a qualified specialist workshop every five years.
  • Do not remove any foreign objects that have entered the tire.

  • Let the tire inflation compressor run for a maximum of ten minutes.
  • The tire should then have attained a pressure of at least 200 kPa (2.0 bar/29 psi).

If tire sealant leaks out, make sure you clean the affected area as quickly as possible. It is preferable to use clean water. If you get tire sealant on your clothing, have it cleaned as soon as possible with perchloroethylene. If, after ten minutes, a tire pressure of 200 kPa (2.0 bar/29 psi) has not been attained:

  • Switch off the tire inflation compressor.
  • Unscrew the filling hose from the valve of the defective tire.
  • Please note that tire sealant may leak out when you unscrew the filling hose.
  • Drive forwards or in reverse very slowly for approximately 33 f t (10 m).
  • Pump up the tire again. After a maximum of ten minutes, the tire pressure must be at least 200 kPa (2.0 bar/ 29 psi).

WARNING
Risk of accident due to the specified tire pressure not being achieved If the specified tire pressure is not achieved after the specified time, the tire is too badly damaged. The tire sealant cannot repair the tire in this instance. The braking characteristics as well as the driving characteristics may be greatly impaired.

  • Do not continue driving.
  • Consult a qualified specialist workshop.

If, after ten minutes, a tire pressure of 200 kPa (2.0 bar/29 psi) has been attained:

  • Switch off the tire inflation compressor.
