The consumer is responsible for proper tire care and
maintenance:(1) It is recommended tires be rotated every 3,500 miles or less for high performance (low
profile) tires or every 7,500 miles or less for
standard passenger and light truck tires. More
frequent rotation may be necessary if, upon
inspection, irregular or erratic tread wear is
beginning to appear. As a general rule, front
and rear tire tread depth differential should be
kept to 2/32nds of an inch or less. Keep a
record of the rotation.
(2) The consumer must maintain the recom- mended air pressure in the tires according to
vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation.
Check inflation pressures on all your tires, in-
cluding the spare tire, when tires are cold, at
least once a month before driving. Maintaining
proper inflation pressure is the single most
important thing you can do to ensure optimum
tread life and tire durability. To avoid injury,
NEVER reinflate a tire that has been run se-

The consumer is entitled to an adjustment in accor-
dance with the warranty that was in effect when the tire
was installed on the vehicle as original equipment. The
adjustment policy provides for replacement with a com-
parable new Toyo tire if a Toyo tire becomes unservice- able due to an adjustable condition verified by Toyo’s
inspection of the tire. Free replacement or a pro rata
charge depends on the remaining usable tread when
tire is presented for adjustment.

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 trailer
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
