TIRE CARE

Make sure that the following warnings are read and fully understood. Failure to comply with the safety instructions may result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not drive the vehicle if a tire is damaged, excessively worn, or incorrectly inflated. A tire in such a condition may catastrophically fail and cause an accident.

WARNING

Avoid contaminating the tires with vehicle fluids as they may cause damage to the tire and cause a tire failure, which can result in an accident.

WARNING

Avoid spinning the wheels. The forces released can damage the structure of the tire, and cause it to fail.

WARNING

If wheel spin is unavoidable due to a loss of traction, e.g., in deep snow, do not exceed the 30 mph (50 km/h) point on the speedometer. Do not allow anyone to stand near or directly behind a tire that might spin.

WARNING

Do not exceed the maximum pressure stated on the sidewall of the tire.

NOTES

Tire condition should be checked after the vehicle has been used off-road. As soon as the vehicle returns to a normal, hard, road surface, stop and check for damage to the tires.

All of the vehicle's tires, including the spare, should be checked regularly for damage, wear and distortion. If in any doubt about the condition of a tire, have it checked immediately by a tire repair center or a retailer/authorized repairer.
