WARNING

The tire replacement indicator is not a substitute for regular tire checks, including tire pressure checks.

Many factors including tire inflation, alignment, driving habits and road conditions affect tire wear and when tires should be replaced. Setting the tire replacement indicator for a certain driving distance does not mean your tires will last that long.

Serious vehicle damage could occur and may lead to a collision, which could result in serious personal injury or death.
