An overloaded vehicle, long journeys
by motorway, particularly in very hot

weather, or continual driving on poorly
surfaced minor roads will lead to more
rapid tyre wear and affect safety.
Maintaining the tyres
The tyres must be in good condition
and the tread form must have sufficient
depth; tyres approved by our Technical
Department have wear warning strips 1
which are indicators moulded into
the tread at several points.
Incidents which occur when
driving, such as striking the
kerb, may damage the tyres
and wheel rims, and could
also lead to misalignment of the
front or rear axle geometry. In this
case, have the condition of these
checked by an approved dealer.
