other service charges and applicable taxes.
A tire meeting the conditions forpro ratareplacement,
which wears evenly across the tread, down to the tread
wear indicators (2/32nds of an inch tread remaining)
within 6 years of the date of purchase, and before
delivering the warranted miles of service, will be re-
placed with a comparable new MICHELIN® tire based
on mileage received. The participating MICHELIN® tire
retailer will determine the charge by multiplying the
percent of mileage received by the current actual selling
price at the adjustment location or the price of the tire in
the current Michelin Base Price List, whichever is lower.
This list is based on a predetermined price intended to
fairly represent the actual selling price of the tire.Yo u
pay the cost of mounting, balancing and any
other dealer services and applicable taxes.
Tires which wear out evenly before delivering the war-
ranted mileage will be replaced on a pro ratabasis only if:

20 ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT TIRE LIMITED WARRANTIES
Page 25 of 43
Any tire, no matter how well constructed, may fail due to
improper maintenance or service factors. This could
create a risk of property damage and serious or fatal
injury. Disregarding any of the safety precautions and
instructions contained in this manual may result in tire
failure or explosion causing serious personal injury or
death. For your safety, comply with the following:
Keep tires inflated to the pressures recommended on
the tire data placard. (See your OWNER’S MANUAL for
location.) These inflation pressures must be maintained
as a minimum. However, do not exceed the maximum
pressure rating indicated on the tire sidewall.
CHECK INFLATION PRESSURES ON ALL YOUR
TIRES, INCLUDING THE SPARE, WHEN TIRES ARE
COLD, AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH BEFORE DRIV-
Failure to maintain correct inflation may result in im-
proper vehicle handling and may cause rapid and ir-
regular tire wear, sudden tire destruction, loss of vehicle
control and serious personal injury. Therefore, inflation
pressures should be checked at least once a month and
always prior to long distance trips.
Pressures should be checked when tires are cold. The
tires are cold when your vehicle has been driven less
than a mile at moderate speed after being stopped for
three or more hours.
CHECKING PRESSURE WHEN TIRES
If you must add air when your tires are hot, add four
pounds per square inch (psi) (28 kPa) above the rec-
ommended cold air pressure. Recheck the inflation
pressure when the tire is cold.
For Example Only:
Gauge reading of hot tire: 32 psi
If recommended pressure is: 30 psi
Desired gauge reading of hot tire 30+4psi=34psi
Check cold pressures as soon as possible, at least by
the next day. Never “bleed” air from hot tires as your tire
will be underinflated. Use an accurate tire gauge to
check pressures. Never allow children to air up tires.
DRIVING ON ANY TIRE THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE
CORRECT INFLATION PRESSURE IS DANGEROUS.
For replacement tires, the correct inflation pressure will be
provided by your tire dealer. If not, refer to the vehicle decal.
Underinflation produces extreme flexing of the sidewalls
and builds up heat which may result in sudden tire de-
struction and serious personal injury. Overinflating can
cause the tire to be more susceptible to impact damage.
DO NOT OVERLOAD. DRIVING ON ANY OVER-
LOADED TIRE IS DANGEROUS.Never load your
tires beyond the load carrying limits molded into the
sidewall of the tires or the maximum vehicle load limit as
shown on the vehicle tire data placard, whichever is
less. Overloading causes heat to build up which can
lead to sudden tire failure and serious personal injury.
SPEED LIMITS AND SPEED RATED
HIGH SPEED DRIVING CAN BE DANGEROUS.
Never operate your vehicle in excess of lawful speeds or
the maximum speeds justified by the driving conditions.
Excessive speeds or racing can cause heat buildup in a
tire leading to possible failure and serious personal
Correct inflation pressure is especially impor-
tant. However, at high speeds, even with the correct
inflation pressure, a road hazard, for example, is more
difficult to avoid and if contact is made, there is a greater
chance of causing tire damage than at the lower speed.
Moreover, driving at high speed reduces the reaction
time available to avoid accidents and bring your vehicle
to a safe stop. If you see any damage to a tire or wheel,
replace it with your spare tire and see your tire dealer at
Tire speed ratings do not imply that a vehicle can be
safely driven at the maximum speed for which the tire is
rated. In addition, some damages or improper repairs
may cause a speed-rated tire to lose its speed rating.
Exceeding the tire’s maximum speed rating will cause
the tire to build up excessive heat which can cause tire
damage that could result in sudden tire destruction and
rapid air loss. Failure to control a vehicle with sudden air
loss can lead to an accident. In any case, you should not
exceed reasonable speeds as indicated by the legal
limits and driving conditions.

SPEED SYMBOLS -are shown on the sidewall of
some tires. The following table shows the maximum
speed corresponding to the symbol.
†Speed Speed Maximum Rating mph km/Hr M 81 130
N 87 140
P 93 150
Q 99 160
R 106 170

V* 149 240
Z** 149 240
*Some V (or VR) rated tires may have a speed
capacity of greater than 149 mph (240 km/h).
Consult your tire manufacturer for maximum speed
ratings if your vehicle capability exceeds this speed.
**Z (or ZR) rated tires are designed for use on
cars with maximum speed capabilities in excess
of 149 mph (240 km/h). Consult your tire manufac-
turer for maximum speed capabilities.
†Although a tire may be speed rated, we do not endorse
the operation of any vehicle in an unsafe or unlawful
manner. Speed ratings are based on laboratory tests
which relate to performance on the road, but are not applicable if tires are underinflated, overloaded, worn
out, damaged, altered, improperly repaired, or re-
treaded. Furthermore, tire speed ratings do not imply
that vehicles can be safely driven at the maximum
speed for which the tire is rated, particularly under
adverse road and weather conditions or if the vehicle
has unusual characteristics. Most highway passenger
tires that do not have a speed symbol in the sidewall
have a maximum speed rating of 105 mph. Light truck
highway tires that do not have a speed symbol on the
sidewall of the tire have a maximum speed of 87 mph.
Some light truck tires may have higher maximum
speeds; consult your tire dealer. The speed and other
ratings of retreaded tires are assigned by the retreader
and voids the original manufacturer’s ratings.
In order to maintain the speed capability
of the vehicle, replacement tires must have speed rat-
ings equal to or higher than those fitted as original
equipment (as indicated on the vehicle placard or
OWNER’S MANUAL) . If tires with lower speed ratings
are fitted, the speed capability of the vehicle will be
lowered to the maximum speed capability of the re-
placement tire as indicated on the above table.
Remember...High speed driving can be dangerous and
may be damaging to your tires.
And...When driving at highway speeds, correct inflation
pressure is especially important.
Contact the manufacturer of your tires for their position
and assistance on the repair of speed-rated tires. When
you are replacing tires that have a speed rating, you
must replace with tires of the same or higher speed
rating if the speed capability of the vehicle is to be
INSPECT YOUR TIRES. DO NOT DRIVE ON A
DAMAGED TIRE OR WHEEL. Check your tires fre-
quently for scrapes, bulges, separations, cuts, snags,
cracks, penetrations or excessive localized wear from
hard braking. Also check for abnormal tire wear, particu-
larly on the edges of the tire tread which may be caused
by misalignment or underinflation. Impacts can damage
the inner portion of the tire without being visible on the
outside. If damage can be seen on the tires or wheels, or
if you suspect that possible impact damage may have
occurred, replace with spare at once and have your tire
store or dealer inspect your tires immediately. Use of a
damaged tire could result in tire destruction. When
inspecting your tires, including the spare, check your air
pressures. If your pressure check indicates that one of
your tires has lost pressure of two pounds or more, look
for signs of penetrations, valve leakage, or wheel dam-
age that may account for the air loss.
All tires will wear out faster when subjected to high
speeds as well as hard cornering, rapid starts, sudden
stops, frequent driving on roads which are in poor
condition, and off-road use. Roads with holes and rocks
or other objects can damage tires and cause misalign-
ment of your vehicle. When you drive on such roads,
drive on them carefully and slowly, and before driving
again at normal or highway speeds, examine your tires
for any damage, such as cuts, bulges, penetrations,
unusual wear patterns, etc.
TREAD WEAR INDICATORS (WEAR BARS): Tires
contain Tread Wear Indicators (Wear Bars) in the
grooves of the tire tread which show up when only
2/32nds of an inch (1.6 mm) of tread is remaining.
(Continued on next page)
22 IMPORTANT TIRE SAFETY INFORMATION1
Page 27 of 43
At this stage, your tires must be replaced. Tires
worn beyond this stage are dangerous.
* Provided by and published at the request of the tire
Objects in the road that threaten a tire should be safely
avoided. These objects are potholes, glass, metal,
rocks, wood debris and the like. Unavoidable contact
should prompt a thorough tire inspection.
You may not always recall hitting an object that can
damage or injure your tires. If while driving your vehicle
experiences any unusual vibrations, ride disturbance or
noise and/or you suspect that possible damage to the
tires or vehicle has occurred,DO NOT JAM OR LOCK
YOUR BRAKES! Rather reduce your speed and drive
with caution until you can safely pull off the road. Stop
and inspect the tires. If the tire is underinflated or
damaged, deflate, remove the tire and rim assembly and
replace it with your spare. If you cannot detect a cause,
have the vehicle towed to the nearest vehicle or tire
dealer to have the vehicle inspected.
REPAIRING, MOUNTING AND
DEMOUNTING OF TIRES
Do not attempt to repair, mount or demount a tire
yourself. Tire changing can be dangerous and must be
done by professionally trained persons using proper
tools and procedures as specified by the Rubber Manu-
facturers Association (RMA) . Follow these mounting
recommendations. Your tires should be mounted on
wheels of correct size and type and which are in good, clean condition. Bent, chipped or rusted wheels may
cause tire damage. The inside of the tire must be free
from foreign materials.
Have your dealer check the
wheels before mounting new tires. Mismatched
tires and rims can explode during mounting. Also, mis-
matched tires and rims can result in dangerous tire
failure on the road. If a tire is mounted by error on the
wrong-sized rim, do not remount it on the proper rim -
scrap it. It may be damaged internally (which is not
externally visible) by being dangerously stretched and
could fail on the highway.
Old valves may leak. When new tubeless tires are
mounted, have new valves of the correct type installed.
Tubeless tires must be mounted only on wheels de-
signed for tubeless tires, i.e., wheels which have safety
humps or ledges.
Never perform a temporary repair, use an innertube or
inject sealant as a permanent substitute for a proper
repair. Only qualified persons should repair tires.
Be sure that all your valves have suitable valve caps.
This will keep valve cores clean and clear and guard
REPAIRS - WHENEVER POSSIBLE, SEE A TIRE
DEALER AT ONCE. Some tire manufacturers do not
warrant any inspection or repair process. The repair is
entirely the responsibility of the repairer. Punctures in
the tread of a passenger tire which do not exceed 1/4 of
an inch (6 mm) in diameter can usually be repaired by
following the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association
(RMA) Passenger and Light Truck Repair procedures.
Contact the manufacturer of your tires for its position
and assistance as to the acceptable location for a proper repair and the repair of speed rated tires.
use plug repairs. They may cause further damage
to the tire. They are not always air tight and the
plug may fail. Do not exceed posted speed limits on
any repaired tire. Certain tire manufacturers speed rat-
ings are voided if the tire is repaired.
Although a tire was properly repaired, internal structural
damage resulting from the puncture may have occurred.
Sometime later the damage may cause the tire to be
removed from service.
If the tire has a puncture in the tread which exceeds
1/4 inch (6 mm) , the tire must be replaced. If any tire has
sustained a puncture, have the tire inspected internally
by a tire dealer for possible damage that may have
Improper mounting and inflation procedures can cause
an explosion of the tire/rim assembly. Only specially
trained persons should perform these tasks. Contact
your tire store or dealer for assistance.
CAUTION -Never, under any circumstance, intro-
duce a flammable substance into a tire.
WHEEL ALIGNMENT AND BALANCING
Wheel alignment and balancing are important for safety
and maximum mileage from your tires. Check how your
tires are wearing at least once a month. If your tires are
wearing unevenly, such as the inside shoulder of the tire
wearing faster than the rest of the tread, or if you detect
excessive vibration, your vehicle may be out of align-
ment or balance. These conditions not only shorten the
life of your tires, but adversely affect the handling char-
(Continued on next page)*Provided by and published at the request of the tire manufacturers/warrantors.
IMPORTANT TIRE SAFETY INFORMATION123
Page 28 of 43
acteristics of your vehicle which could be dangerous. If
you detect irregular wear or vibration, have your align-
ment and balance checked immediately. Tires which
have been run underinflated will show more wear on the
shoulders than in the center of the tread.
You must inspect your tires after any hard braking cir-
cumstances or after tires have slid on the pavement.
This can cause a flat spot in a section of the tire tread.
Never spin your tires above a speedometer reading of
35 mph (55 km/h) if your vehicle becomes stuck. The
centrifugal force generated by the free spinning
tire/wheel assembly may cause a sudden tire explosion,
resulting in vehicle damage and/or serious personal
injury or death. Never allow anyone to stand near or
behind a tire spinning at high speed while attempting to
push a vehicle that is stuck. When in mud, sand, snow,
ice or other slippery conditions, do not indulge in exces-
sive wheel spin. In such conditions, with automatic
transmission vehicles, by accelerating the engine ex-
cessively, it is possible to spin one of the drive tires
beyond its speed capability. This is also true when
balancing a drive tire/wheel assembly using the engine
of the vehicle to spin the wheel.
Tires must be replaced when the depth of the tread
reaches 2/32 inch (1.6 mm) . Tires are manufactured
with tread wear indicators molded into the tire grooves
which indicate tread wearout. As tires approximate
2/32 inch (1.6 mm) wearout, the tread gauge becomesthinner and more vulnerable to the effects of road haz-
ards. Also, worn tires are more subject to hydroplaning,
which can cause loss of control. Therefore, visual tire
inspection becomes more crucial as the tires wear out.
Never drive on worn tires. Tires should be replaced by
trained personnel when 2/32nds of an inch tread depth
remains, as indicated by the tread wear indicators
molded into the tread grooves. In most states, it is illegal
to drive with less than 2/32nds of an inch of tread
For best performance
select tires similar in size and
load rating to the original equipment tires. It is recom-
mended that the same size and type of tire be used on
all four wheel positions. In certain tires, casing ply
material and ply construction may vary as indicated on
the sidewall of the tire. When changing or replacing
tires, it is preferred that all four tires are the same
construction type (i.e., High Performance, All Season,
Mud & Snow) and construction (Radial or Bias Ply) .
Before mixing tires of different types on a vehicle in any
configuration, be sure to check the vehicle OWNER’S
MANUAL for its recommendations.
Tires which meet the Rubber Manufacturer’s Associa-
tion (RMA) definition of mud and snow tires are marked
M/S, M+S, M&S. On such tires, this designation is
molded into the sidewall. Tires without this notation are
not recommended for mud and/or snow driving.
If snow tires are needed, it is necessary to select tires
equivalent in size and load rating to the original equip-
ment tires. Always fit performance snow tires in sets of four (4) for optimum mud & snow traction and mainte-
nance of vehicle handling characteristics. If you do not,
it may adversely affect the safety and handling of your
vehicle. It is also important to check the vehicle OWN-
ER’S MANUAL before mixing or matching tires on
4-wheel drive vehicles as this may require special pre-
Please refer to your OWNER’S MANUAL for more
information on tire replacement precautions.
Tires on your Nissan vehicle should be rotated every
7,500 miles or as irregular wear develops. If irregular
wear becomes apparent or if the wear rate on the tires is
perceptibly uneven, the tires should be rotated in such a
way to alleviate the problem. Check your vehicle for any
mechanical problems and correct if necessary. Any
rotation pattern or procedure may be followed including
those indicated in the OWNER’S MANUAL. Some tires
have arrows on the sidewall showing the direction in
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.
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 tem-
porary type spare tire is available, it should not be
included in the tire rotation schedule. Such tires are
intended for temporary use only. Whenever only two
tires are replaced, the new tires should be put on the
rear axle of vehicles equipped with the same size tire on
all four wheel positions.

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
All 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. (Tires exposed to these materials during
storage or driving could be subject to sudden failure.)
To Avoid Damage to your Tires and Possible
●Check tire pressure at least once a month when
tires are cold and before long trips.
● Do not underinflate/overinflate.
● Do not overload.
● Drive at moderate speeds, observe legal limits.
● Avoid driving over potholes, obstacles, curbs or
edges of pavement.
● Avoid excessive wheel spinning.
