For the most enjoyable driving experience it's important to replace worn tires. Optimum traction helps provide responsive handling for a smooth, reliable ride. To determine when you should start shopping, follow these simple steps.
The key to good traction is friction, but this can be elusive depending on the weather. Winter tires are designed to stay soft and pliable at low temperatures, so they will deform and re-conform to all the micro irregularities of the icy surface, resulting in grip. All-season tires are designed to help provide traction in wet and snowy conditions. Their reinforced sidewalls keep the tire shoulders on the road, while microgrooves help provide biting edges that lock together, enabling better grip when turning on wet roads. clear
The last four (4) digits of the serial code identify the week and year of production. For example, a tire with a serial code ending in “1416” was produced in the 16th week of 2016.
Speed rating indicates the maximum speed at which the weight designated by the manufacturing company can be supported by the tire. When replacing your tires, consult your vehicle owner’s manual and tire information placard for recommendations, if any, concerning the use of speed rated tires.
In the case of a damaged tire and wheel, professional consultation is recommended. Tire replacement should only be done by a trained and highly experienced technician.
The optimum air pressure level for your tire can be found on the inner side of the car door, inside the fuel cap or in the car manual (the location of the sticker can vary according to country).DO NOT compare your inflation pressure to its maximum pressure marked on the tire’s sidewall.It is important to check all tires, even the spare, at least once a month or before a long trip.
- in case of higher pressure than a recommendation, deflate your tire to the recommended pressure.
- in case of lower pressure than a recommendation, inflate your tire up to the recommended pressure.
In general, it is the best to rotate tires every six months or 10,000km. To change tire position to the other position ensure even wear and long life of tire.
This needs to be determined immediately by getting the tires inspected by an authorized dealer. If the irregular wear damage is due to inflation problems or mechanical wear such as alignment, the warranty is void. If by chance the bad wear is due to a workmanship or material defect, this can be confirmed by a tire technician and a claim can be filed to compensate you toward the unused portion of the tire.
We recommends to inspect wheel alignment every year or for every 20,000km. The inspection is required.
Tire balancing is a process of compensating for the weight of the tire and wheel after assembly.
If not properly balanced, it increases vibration and cause stress on your vehicle.
If you feel a vibration from a tire, visit a mechanic where he or she will attach a balancing weight to the exterior or interior of the wheel to counteract centrifugal forces acting on the heavy areas when the wheel is turning.
Tire adjustments under this Limited Warranty will only be made at an authorized retailer. If you have any question about tire warranties you should contact with your local retailer.
