Х Maintain correct tire pressure. See the tire inflation table on page 291.

Х Drive smoothly: avoid fast starts, hard braking and tire screeching.

Х Tire wear increases with speed.

Х Correct front wheel alignment is very important.

Х Unbalanced wheels impair tire economy and driving comfort.

Х Tires must maintain the same direction of rotation throughout their lifetime.

Х When replacing tires, the tires with the most tread should be mounted on the rear wheels to reduce the chance of oversteer during hard braking.

Х Hitting curbs or potholes can damage the tires and/or wheels permanently.
