Be sure to mount only a tyre of standard or optional sizes listed on the vehicle tyre information placard in the car or in the owner's manual.
Winter tyres (studless, stud or snow tyres) should not be mixed with other types of tyres.
Do not mix different tyre size designations or constructions on the same axle, except for limited use of temporary spare tyres. If tyre types are mixed on the same vehicle, driving stability can be lost resulting in serious accident.
Make sure no air leakage exists from the valve and fix a cap on the valve.
Be sure to inspect the rim flange for damage. Do not mount a tyre on a rim that is damaged or which has been repaired by welding or brazing.
When the tread wears to the "platform wear indicators" level, the tyre can no longer be used as a snow or studless tyre. It can, however, be used as a normal tyre to the "tread wear indicators" level (1.6 mm), at which time the tyre should be replaced.
Tyre rotation can extend tyre life. Refer to your owner's manual for proper tyre rotation procedure and ask your YOKOHAMA tyre dealer.
Never inflate beyond 280kPa(2.8bar,40 psi) to seat beads.
When driving on winter roads, sudden starts and quick stops should be avoided, and maintain a safe car-to-car driving distance.
tyre chains be sure to use the proper size chains and affix with
priority to the drive axle. Avoid driving with tyre chains for
long distance on roads with no packed
snow or ice.
Outer diameter of wheel should be the same as inner diameter
Never use a tyre under the following conditions:
Store unmounted tyres indoor in a dry location.
Never expose unmounted tyres to moisture.
