Compact Spare Tire
Although the compact spare tire was fully in?ated when
your vehicle was new, it can lose air after a time.
Check the in?ation pressure regularly. It should be
60 psi (420 kPa).
After installing the compact spare on your vehicle, you
should stop as soon as possible and make sure
your spare tire is correctly in?ated. The compact spare
is made to perform well at speeds up to 65 mph
(105 km/h) for distances up to 3,000 miles (5 000 km),
so you can ?nish your trip and have your full-size
tire repaired or replaced where you want. You must
calibrate the Check Tire Pressure System after installing
or removing the compact spare. See Check Tire
Pressure System on page 5-65. Of course, it?s best to
replace your spare with a full-size tire as soon as
you can. Your spare will last longer and be in good
shape in case you need it again.
Notice: When the compact spare is installed, do
not take your vehicle through an automatic car wash
with guide rails. The compact spare can get
caught on the rails. That can damage the tire and
wheel, and maybe other parts of your vehicle.
Don?t use your compact spare on other vehicles.
And don?t mix your compact spare tire or wheel with
other wheels or tires. They won?t ?t. Keep your compact
spare tire and its wheel together.
Notice: Tire chains will not ?t your compact spare.
Using them can damage your vehicle and can
damage the chains too. Do not use tire chains on
your compact spare.
Cleaning products can be hazardous. Some are toxic.
Other cleaning products can burst into ?ames if a match
is struck near them or if they get on a hot part of the
vehicle. Some are dangerous if their fumes are inhaled
in a closed space. When anything from a container
is used to clean the vehicle, be sure to follow the
manufacturer?s warnings and instructions. Always open
the doors or windows of the vehicle when cleaning
