CHECK TIRE INFLATION PRESSURES (INCLUDING THE SPARE) AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH AND BEFORE LONG TRIPS. ALL TIRES LOSE AIR OVER TIME.
Failure to maintain correct inflation may result in improper vehicle handling and may cause rapid and irregular wear, sudden tire destruction, loss of vehicle control, and serious personal injury or death. Pressure should be checked when tires are cold; in other words, before they have been driven on. Driving, even a short distance, causes tires to heat up and air pressure to increase. Air pressure for any of Atturo’s tires can be calculated on our website with the PSI Calculator.
INSPECT YOUR TIRES REGULARLY
At least once a month inspect your tires closely for signs of uneven wear. Uneven wear patterns may be caused by improper inflation pressures, misalignment, improper balance, or suspension neglect. If not corrected, further tire damage will occur. These conditions not only shorten the life of your tires and can lead to sudden tire failure, but they also adversely affect the handling characteristics of your vehicle which could be dangerous. If any of these conditions exist, the cause may often be corrected at your local tire installer/dealer or other service facilities.
WORN OUT TIRES ARE DANGEROUS
Tires contain "Wear-Bars" in the grooves of the tires tread and indicate when only 2/32nds of an inch (1.6 mm) tread is remaining. Tires worn to 2/32" at any place on the tire, must be replaced immediately! Tires worn beyond this stage are dangerous.
If any tire has sustained a puncture, have the tire dismounted and inspected internally by a tire dealer for possible damage that may have occurred. Punctures in certain areas of the tread which do not exceed ¼-inch (6mm) in diameter can be repaired by following the Rubber Manufacturers' Association (RMA) recommended repair procedures. Do not use externally applied plug repairs. Although it is possible to properly repair many tires, repaired tires should be considered temporary, and repaired tires should be replaced as soon as possible. Any Atturo tire which has been repaired is no longer eligible for warranty replacement for any failure after the repair.
Tires should be stored in a cool dry place indoors away from water and sources of heat and ozone, such as hot pipes and electric motors. 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 and/or excessive heat for a prolonged period during storage may be weakened and subject to sudden failure.
The rotation pattern indicated in your vehicle manufacturer’s owner’s manual should be followed. If irregular wear becomes apparent or if the rate of wear on the tires is uneven, the tires should be inspected by a tire dealer. Check your vehicle for any mechanical problems and correct them if necessary. Only directional tires, such as the AZ800, may be rotated contrary to the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations as switching sides of the vehicle will result in the tires not rotating in the correct direction. Asymmetrical tires will still result in the proper side of the tires facing outwards.
