Tire Rotation

Checking For Pull And Wander

If the steering pulls to one side, rotate the tires according to the following wheel rotation procedure.

  1. Rotate the front right and front left tires, and perform a road test in order to confirm vehicle stability.

  1. If the steering pulls to the opposite side, rotate the front and rear tires, and perform a road test again.

Tire Wear

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.

  1. Measure the tread depth of the tires.

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

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


When the tread depth of the tires is less than 1.6 mm(0.0630 in), the wear indicators (B) will appear.
