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.
