TIRE 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, 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 damage 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

Check the condition of the tires after the vehicle has been driven off-road. As soon as the vehicle returns to a normal, hard road surface, stop and check for damage to the tires.

Check all of the tires, including spare, 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.
