TEMPORARY SPARE TIRE SAFETY
The spare tire your car is equipped with may be of a
different size and construction from the other tires on
your vehicle. When using any temporary type spare tire,
be sure to follow the vehicle manufacturer’s instruc-
tions. FAILURE TO OBSERVE RECOMMENDED PRE-
CAUTIONS COULD LEAD TO ERRATIC VEHICLE
BEHAVIOR AND/OR TIRE DAMAGE POSSIBLY RE-
SULTING IN AN ACCIDENT.
(1) A “T” Type temporary spare tire is designed for temporary use only. It must not be used as a
standard tire continuously. The temporary
spare tire should be returned to the trunk as
soon as it is convenient to have your standard
tire repaired or replaced.
(2) “T” Type temporary spare tires should NOT BE used for speeds exceeding 50 miles per hour.
(3) NEVER use chains on “T” Type temporary spare tires because it could cause damage to
your vehicle. (4) When you replace the temporary spare tire,
replace it only with the same type of tire.
(5) Check inflation pressure before use. Failure to have proper inflation pressure when using your
spare tire can result in serious personal injury
or death. Maintain inflation pressure of 35 psi
for the temporary full size spare and 60 psi for
the “T” Type, high pressure, temporary spare
tire. When inflating or adding air to a “T” Type
temporary spare tire, be very careful since the
smaller tire volume can gain pressure much
more rapidly than a normal full size tire.
(6) Placing (mounting) your temporary use tire on a wheel which is not specifically designed for
use with the temporary use tire or placing an-
other type tire on your temporary use wheel
can be dangerous. Your vehicle’s handling
characteristics can be seriously affected. You
could have an accident resulting in serious
personal injury or death. Consult your vehicle
Owner’s Manual for proper use of your “tem-
porary use” spare tire.
(7) The “T” Type high pressure temporary spare tire should not be used with any other wheel
nor should standard tires, snow tires, wheel
covers or trim rings be used on the high pres-
sure spare tire wheel. (8) Do not operate your vehicle with more than
one temporary spare in use (this does not ap-
ply to a full size spare) and only at limited
speeds and distances as indicated on the
sidewall of the tire.
(9) The “T” Type temporary spare tire may lower ground clearance when used. Avoid driving
over large obstacles and other road hazards.
Check your vehicle Owner’s Manual for other
special clearance precautions when using the
“T” Type temporary spare tire provided in your

Manual and in the Important Tire Safety Infor-
mation section of this booklet.

which the tire should turn. When rotating this type of
tire, care must be taken to maintain the proper turning
direction as indicated by the arrows. Some vehicles
have different tire sizes specified for front and rear axles.
Tires on these vehicles should not be rotated side to
side (unless they are non-directional) . Where a tempo-
rary type spare tire is available, it should not be included
in the tire rotation schedule. Such tires are intended for
temporary use only.
REPLACING TWO TIRES
If your vehicle was originally equipped with four tires that
were the same size and you are only replacing two of the
four tires, install the new tires on the rear axle. Placing
new tires on the front axle may cause loss of vehicle
control in some driving conditions and cause an acci-
dent and personal injury.
If you anticipate towing a trailer, you should see a tire
dealer for advice concerning the correct size of tire and
pressure. Tire size and pressure will depend on the type
and size of the trailer and hitch utilized, but in no case
must the maximum cold inflation pressure or the tire load
rating be exceeded. Check the tire decal and your
OWNER’S MANUAL for further recommendations on
Do not perform any alterations on your tires. Alterations
may prevent proper performance, leading to tire dam-
age, which can result in an accident. Tires which be-
come unserviceable due to alterations such as truing,
whitewall inlays, addition of balancing or sealant liquids,
may be excluded from warranty coverage. Consult your
HIGH PRESSURE TEMPORARY SPARE
1) The high-pressure spare tire in your Nissanvehicle is designed for temporary use only and
must not be used continually as a regular tire.
The standard tire should be repaired and/or
replaced as soon as possible.
2) Avoid driving over obstacles that may damage the tire through impact or cutting, such as
potholes, glass, metal, etc.
3) Speed must not exceed 50MPH (80km/h) for non-speed-rated temporary spare tires.
4) Temporary spare tires have a limited treadlife which can vary depending on road conditions
and your driving habits. The spare tire should
be returned to the trunk as soon as the stan-
dard tire can be repaired or replaced.
5) Because the high-pressure spare tire was spe- cifically designed for your car, it should not be
used on any other vehicle. 6) Do not use snow chains on your high-pressure
spare. This could cause damage to your
7) Check the tire’s cold inflation pressure monthly and maintain at 60psi (4.2kg/cm2) even when
not in use.
8) The high-pressure spare tire should not be used with any other rim nor should standard
tires, wheel covers, or trim rings be used on
the high-pressure spare tire rim which was
