Tires
Your new vehicle comes with high-quality tires
made by a leading tire manufacturer. If you ever
have questions about your tire warranty and where
to obtain service, see your vehicle Warranty booklet
for details. For additional information refer to the tire
manufacturer.
{ CAUTION:
? Poorly maintained and improperly used
tires are dangerous.
? Overloading your tires can cause
overheating as a result of too much
?exing. You could have an air-out and a
serious accident. See Loading the
Vehicle on page 4-19.

?
Underin?ated tires pose the same danger
as overloaded tires. The resulting
accident could cause serious injury.
Check all tires frequently to maintain the
recommended pressure. Tire pressure
should be checked when your tires are
cold. See In?ation - Tire Pressure on
page 5-57.
? Overin?ated tires are more likely to be
cut, punctured, or broken by a sudden
impact ? such as when you hit a pothole.
Keep tires at the recommended pressure.
? Worn, old tires can cause accidents. If
your tread is badly worn, or if your tires
have been damaged, replace them.
See High-Speed Operation on page 5-59 for
in?ation pressure adjustment for high speed
driving.
