TYRE CARE

Make sure the following warnings have been read and fully understood before driving the vehicle. Failure to do so may result in an accident, potentially leading to serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not drive the vehicle if a tyre is damaged, excessively worn, or incorrectly inflated. A tyre in such a condition may catastrophically fail.

WARNING

Avoid contaminating the tyres with vehicle fluids. Vehicle fluids may cause damage to the tyre and cause tyre failure.

WARNING

Avoid spinning the wheels. The forces released can damage the structure of the tyre and cause tyre failure.

WARNING

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

WARNING

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

NOTES

Tyre 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 tyres.

Check all the vehicle’s tyres, including the spare, regularly for damage, wear, and distortion. If in any doubt about the condition of a tyre, have it checked immediately by a tyre repair centre or a retailer/authorised repairer.
