1.50.1. Instructions on operation of tires


New tires are rolled during the first 100 km of a run. Only after that their coupling with the road will be maximum. Therefore observe the increased care when driving the car with new tires.

Operation of tires with the worn-out or damaged protector can lead to accident therefore periodically check a condition of tires. Delete the foreign objects which got stuck in protectors of tires.

Periodically check pressure in tires (at least once a month or before a distant trip). The required pressure in tires is specified on the plate from the inside of a cover of the hatch of a mouth of the fuel tank. Check pressure on cold tires.


The lowered pressure in tires results in wear of a protector and increase in fuel consumption quicker.

Move through curbstones or other obstacles in small speed and whenever possible at right angle not to damage tires and disks of wheels.

Keep in mind that driving with sharp dispersals and braking accelerates wear of tires.

Whenever possible do not allow hit on tires of fuel and oils.

In order to avoid pollution of zolotniks do not operate the car without protective caps. If caps were lost, surely establish new.

If during the movement you felt vibration or withdrawal of the car aside, stop and check tires. Replace a wheel with the defective tire (cracks, cambers and so forth). In the absence of visible defects of the tire immediately address on service station.

You carry out all works on repair of wheels in a specialized workshop. Check that after repair the wheel was balanced.

Install only those tires and disks which are recommended by manufacturer on the car.

It is recommended to change both tires for axes at once. Install tires with deeper drawing of a protector on forward wheels.

On all wheels of the car install radial tires of one type, the size and the identical drawing of a protector.

Never install on the car of the tire of unknown producers, especially if they are worn-out. Use the tires stored more than 6 years only in urgent cases. At the same time observe special precaution at operation of the car.

During the winter period use tires with the corresponding drawing of a protector on all four wheels. Passability of the car on snow decreases at wear of a protector up to the depth less than 4 mm.

Chains of antisliding can be mounted on tires of all sizes, except 195/50 R15 (they need to be replaced with tires of 185/55 R15 in size). It is allowed to apply chains which width of links does not exceed 15 mm. At installation of chains decorative caps of wheels need to be taken off.

You store tires in the dry, cold, dark room. You store the tires which are not installed on drives in vertical position.
