IMPORTANT SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE
Any tire, no matter how well constructed, can fail as a result
of punctures, impact damage, improper inﬂ ation or other
conditions resulting from use. Tire failures may create a risk
of property damage or personal injury. To reduce the risk
of tire failure, we strongly recommend the following:
SERIOUS INJURY MAY RESULT FROM:
1. Tire failure due to underinﬂ ation, vehicle overloading,
or use in excess of legal speeds – follow owner’s
manual or tire information placard in your vehicle.
2. Explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting – only specially trained persons should

warranty, you must:

The consumer is entitled to an adjustment in accordance 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 comparable new
Toyo tire if a Toyo tire becomes unserviceable due to an
adjustable condition veriﬁ ed by Toyo’s inspection of the
tire. Free replacement or a pro-rated charge depends on the remaining usable tread when the tire is presented
EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS
This warranty is limited to the 50 United States, and the
District of Columbia. All implied warranties, including
warranty of merchantability or ﬁ tness for a particular purpose
are expressly limited to the duration of this warranty. All
obligations or liabilities for incidental or consequential
damages are hereby excluded (such as loss of time,
loss of use of vehicle, towing charges or road service or

long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation
of incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. No Toyo em-
ployee, representative or dealer has the authority to make
or imply any representation, promise or agreement which
in any way varies the terms of this warranty. This warranty
gives you speciﬁ c legal rights and you may also have other
rights which vary from state to state.

has been designated as a “Limited Warranty”.
Nothing in this warranty is intended to be

TRAILER TOWINGIf 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 inﬂ ation pressure or the tire load rating be
exceeded. Check the tire decal and your Owner’s Manual
for further recommendations on trailer towing.
TIRE ALTERATIONSDo not perform any alterations on your tires. Alterations may
prevent proper performance, leading to tire damage, which
can result in an accident. Tires which become unserviceable
due to alterations such as truing, whitewall inlays, addition
of balancing or sealant liquids, may be excluded from
warranty coverage. Consult your tire warranty.
HIGH PRESSURE TEMPORARY SPARE
1) The high-pressure spare tire in your Nissan vehicle 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 standard tire can be repaired
5) Because the high-pressure spare tire was speciﬁ cally designed for your car, it should not be used on any
6) Do not use snow chains on your high-pressure spare.
This could cause damage to your vehicle.
7) Check the tire’s cold inﬂ ation pressure monthly and maintain at 60psi (4.2kg/cm

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 originally installed.
9) When the tread wear indicator appears on the tire, replace it only with the same type spare tire.
10) Do not enter an automatic carwash with a temporary spare tire ﬁ tted.
11) Do not make a sharp turn or apply the brakes suddenly when driving on a high-pressure temporary spare.
Note: When using any temporary type spare tire, be sure to
follow the vehicle Owner’s Manual instructions.
TIRE STORAGEAll tires should be stored in a cool dry place indoors so that
there is no danger of water collecting inside them.
When tires are stored they should be stored in a cool place
away from sources of heat and ozone such as hot pipes
and electric generators. Be sure that surfaces on which
tires are stored are clean and free from grease, gasoline
or other substances which could deteriorate the rubber.
