Tire inflation pressure
The tire characteristics and tire inflation pressure influence the following:
▷ The service life of the tires.
▷ Road safety.
▷ Driving comfort.
Checking the pressure
Only check the tire inflation pressure when the tires are cold. This means after driving no more than 1.25 miles/2 km or when the vehicle has been parked for at least 2 hours. When the tires are warm, the tire inflation pressure is higher.
Check the tire inflation pressure regularly
Regularly check the tire inflation pressure and correct it as needed: at least twice a month and before a long trip. If you fail to observe this precaution, you may be driving on tires with incorrect tire pressures, a condition that may not only compromise your vehicle's driving stability, but also lead to tire damage and the risk of an accident.◀
After correcting the tire inflation pressure:
▷ Reinitialize the Flat Tire Monitor.
▷ Reinitialize the Tire Pressure Monitor.
The tire inflation pressure table, contains all pressure specifications for the specified tire sizes at the ambient temperature.
Pressure specifications apply to approved tire sizes and recommended tire brands.
This information can be obtained from your service center.
To identify the correct tire inflation pressure, please note the following:
▷ Tire sizes of your vehicle.
▷ Maximum allowable driving speed.
Tire inflation pressures up to 100 mph/ 160 km/h
For speeds of up to 100 mph/160 km/h and for optimum driving comfort, note the pressure values in the tire inflation pressure table, and adjust as necessary
These pressure values can also be found on the tire inflation pressure label on the driver's door pillar.
Maximum permissible speed
Do not exceed 100 mph/160 km/h; otherwise, tire damage and accidents may result.◀
