Considerations For Replacing Tires
- Aug 01, 2018 -

The carrying capacity of the replacement tyre shall not be lower than the mating tyre

The capacity of the replacement tyre must be equal to or greater than the value specified by the matching tyre manufacturer.

Note: The European metric and the P metric used in Goodyear manufacture and/or sales shall not be interchangeable with other types of tyres unless the cross-section width, flat ratio and rim diameter are the same as Goodyear tires. Note: "Standard load" tires should not be replaced with "oversized" tires.

If the matching tire is "oversized load" tires, it should also be replaced by the same size of the oversized truck tires.

In addition, the following principles should be followed:

When two tyres are installed, the tires with the largest tread depth are installed on the rear axle.

If radial or non radial tires must be installed on the same vehicle, the radial tyre is installed on the rear axle.

Radial and non radial tyres shall not be mixed on the same shaft.

When you need to install snow or all-weather tyres to improve vehicle performance, be sure to install the tires on all four wheels.

It is not recommended to install a tire with different speed.

Two tyres on the same shaft should have the same rated speed if the tires are installed at different speed.

The tires with the lowest speed limit the speed of the vehicle. When you want to change the tire size, be sure to consult the dealer to understand the best rim width, and carefully check the distance between the vehicle and the tyre.
