f Check tires for imbedded material, cuts, punctures, cracks and bulges (side wall) before driving off.
In case of tire damage, where it is uncertain whether there is a break in the ply with all its consequences or tire damage caused by thermal or mechanical overloading due to loss of pressure or any other prior damage, we recommend that the tire be replaced for safety reasons.
If one faulty tire is replaced it should be noted that the difference in tread depth on one axle must not exceed 30%.
Handling inconsistencies may result. f Perform a visual inspection if necessary.
Risk of serious personal injury or death. Driving the vehicle with low tire pressure increases risk of a tire failure and resulting loss of control. Furthermore, low tire pressure increases rate of wear of the affected tires.
f Check tires - including sidewalls - regularly for foreign bodies, nicks, cuts, cracks and bulges.
f After driving off road, examine tires for signs of damage such as cuts, tears, bulges or foreign objects stuck in the tread. Replace a damaged tire if necessary.
