REPLACEMENT TYRES

WARNING

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

Always fit replacement tyres 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 the vehicle's stability.

WARNING

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

WARNING

Do not rotate tyres around the vehicle.

WARNING

If the use of tyres not recommended by the vehicle manufacturer is unavoidable, make sure that tyre manufacturer’s instructions are fully understood and complied with.

WARNING

If lower speed-rated specialist tyres are fitted, e.g., winter tyres or off-road/Professional Off-Road (POR) tyres, the vehicle must be driven within the speed limitations of the tyres. In markets that require a tyre's maximum speed label to be fitted, the label must be placed within the driver's field of vision. Where required, tyre maximum speed labels can be obtained from the tyre retailer. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer for further information.

CAUTION

Tyre removal and fitting should only be carried out by a retailer/authorised repairer.

CAUTION

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

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

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

Alternatively, contact a retailer/authorised repairer for advice.
