Important notes

As far as possible avoid sharp braking and screech starts.

Be careful not to hit the kerb, potholes or other obstacles hard. Driving for long stretches over bumpy roads can damage the tyres.

Periodically check that the tyres have no cuts in the sidewalls, abnormal swelling or irregular tyre wear. If any of these occur, have the vehicle seen to at a Fiat Dealership.

Avoid overloading your vehicle: this can seriously damage wheels and tyres.

If you get a flat tyre, stop immediately and change it so as not to damage the tyre, the wheel, the suspension and the steering.

Tyres age even if they are not used very much. Cracking of the tread rubber and the side walls are a sign of this ageing. In any case, if the tyres have been fitted for more than six years they should be examined by an expert who can judge whether they are still fit for use. Remember to check the spare tyre particularly carefully too.

If a replacement is necessary, always use new tyres and avoid using ones the origin of which you are not certain about.

The Fiat Doblò fits tubeless tyres.

Under no circumstances use an inner tube with these tyres.

If you replace a tyre it is a good idea to change the inflation valve, too.

To ensure the front and rear tyres all wear evenly, you are advised to change the tyres over every 10-15 thousand kilometers keeping them on the same side of the vehicle so as not to reverse the direction of rotation.

the left hand side of the vehicle to the right and vice versa. Do not change the tyres over in criss-cross fashion by moving a tyre from the left hand side of the vehicle to the right and vice versa.
