Tyre care

To make sure the front and rear tyres of your vehicle wear evenly and last longer, we recommend that you swap the tyres from front to rear and vice versa at regular intervals of between 5 000 and 10 000 km (3 000 and 6 000 miles).

CAUTION:
Do not scrub the sidewalls of the tyres when you are parking.

If you have to mount a kerb, do so slowly and approach it with the wheels at right-angles to the kerb.

Examine the tyres regularly for cuts, foreign objects and uneven wear of the tread. Uneven wear could mean that the wheel alignment is outside specification.

Check the tyre pressures (including the spare) when cold, every two weeks.
