Tyre Maintenance Benoni

Never fit tyres with less load-carrying capacity than required by the vehicle’s original equipment manufacturer
You must make certain that the replacement tyres have a load-carrying capacity equal to or great than what the original equipment manufacturer specifies.

NOTE: Goodyear manufactured and/or marketed European-Metric passenger tyres and P-Metric passenger tyres are interchangeable as long as they are the same section width, same aspect ratio and same rim diameter.

CAUTION: Never substitute a “Standard Load” (SL) tyre for an “Extra Load” (XL) tyre. If the vehicle was originally equipped with “Extra Load” (XL) tyres, replace those with same sized XL tyres.

Follow these additional guidelines

Don’t overload your vehicle
Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to determine the load limits. Overloading your vehicle places stress on your tyres and other critical vehicle components. This can also cause poor handling, increased fuel consumption and may cause tyre damage. Never fit your vehicle with new tyres that have less load capacity than shown on the vehicle tyre placard, and remember that optimum rim width is important for proper tyre load distribution and function.

Maintain vehicle suspension & wheel alignment, & balance & rotate your tyres
Lack of rotation, worn suspension parts, under inflation, over inflation, wheel imbalance, and misalignment can cause vibration or irregular tyre wear. Rotate your tyres according to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations or at maximum intervals of 6,000 mi./10,000 km.
