Tire Wear

  

Using tires and wheel other than the recommended sizes could cause unusual handling characteristics and poor vehicle control, resulting in a serious accident.

Measure the tread depth of the tires.

Tread depth [limit] : 1.6 mm (0.0630 in.)

2.

If the remaining tread depth (A) is less than the limit, replace the tire.
