Replacement Tires

The tires on your new vehicle provide a balance of many characteristics. They should be inspected regularly for wear and correct cold tire inflation pressure. The manufacturer strongly recommends that you use tires equivalent to the originals in size, quality and performance when replacement is needed. (Refer to the paragraph on Tread Wear Indicators). Refer to the Tire and Loading Information placard for the size designation of your tire.

The service description and load identification will be found on the original equipment tire. Failure to use equivalent replacement tires may adversely affect the safety, handling, and ride of your vehicle.We recommend that you contact your original equipment or an authorized tire dealer with any questions you may have on tire specifications or capability.

 Do not use a tire, wheel size or rating other than that specified for your WARNING!

Do not use a tire, wheel size or rating other than that specified for your vehicle. Some combinations of unapproved tires and wheels may change suspension dimensions and performance characteristics, resulting in changes to steering, handling, and braking of your vehicle. This can cause unpredictable handling and stress to steering and suspension components. You could lose control and have an accident resulting in serious injury or death.
Use only the tire and wheel sizes with load ratings approved for your vehicle.
Never use a tire with a smaller load index or capacity other than what was originally equipped on your vehicle. Using a tire with a smaller load index could result in tire overloading and failure.
You could lose control and have an accident.
Failure to equip your vehicle with tires having adequate speed capability can result in sudden tire failure and loss of vehicle control.

Replacing original tires with tires of a different size may result in false CAUTION!

Replacing original tires with tires of a different size may result in false speedometer and odometer readings.
