REPLACEMENT TIRES

WARNING

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

WARNING

Always fit replacement tires of the same type, and wherever possible, of the same make and tread pattern. Failure to fit the same type, make and tread pattern may reduce vehicle stability.

WARNING

The load and speed index ratings on all replacement tires must be, at least, the same specification as the vehicle's original equipment. If in doubt, consult a retailer/authorized repairer.

WARNING

If lower speed rated specialist tires are fitted, e.g. winter tires or off road tires, the vehicle must be driven within the speed limitations of the tires. Consult a retailer/authorized repairer for further information.

WARNING

Do not rotate the tires around the vehicle.

WARNING

If the use of tires not recommended by vehicle manufacturer is unavoidable, make sure to read, and fully comply with, the tire manufacturer’s instructions. Failure to do so may lead to tire failure, due to incorrect installation or use.

CAUTION

Tire removal and fitting should only be carried out by a retailer/authorized repairer.

CAUTION

Make sure that the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor is not damaged during a tire change.

When the tread has worn down to approximately 0.7 in (2 mm), wear indicators start to appear at the surface of the tread pattern. The wear indicator produces a continuous band of rubber across the tread, as a visual reminder.

Tires should be replaced in sets of four. If this is not possible, replace the tires in pairs, both front or both rear. When tires are replaced, the wheels should always be re-balanced and the alignment checked.

The correct tire specification and pressure for the vehicle can be found on the tire placard label. See TIRE PRESSURES.

Alternatively contact a retailer/authorized repairer for advice.
