WARNING:
To reduce the chance or serious or fatal injuries from an accident caused by tire failure or loss of vehicle control: o Replace tires that are worn, show uneven wear, or are damaged. Worn tires can cause loss of braking effectiveness, steering control, and traction.

o Do not drive your vehicle with too little or too much pressure in your tires. This can lead to uneven wear and tire failure.

o When replacing tires, never mix radial and bias-ply tires on the same car. You must replace all tires (including the spare) if moving from radial to bias-ply tires.

Regardless of the remaining tread, it is recommended that tires tread, It is recommended that tires generally be replaced after 6 years of normal service. Heat caused by hot climates or frequent high loading conditions can accelerate the aging process. Failure to follow this Warning can result in sudden tire failure, which could lead to a loss of control and an accident involving serious injury or death.
