Mitsubishi Lancer Owners Manual
Tyre wear varies with vehicle conditions, road surface conditions and individual driver’s driving habits.
To equalize the wear and help extend tyre life, it is recommended to rotate the tyres immediately after discovery of abnormal wear, or whenever the wear difference between the front and rear tyres is recognizable.
When rotating tyres, check for uneven wear and damage. Abnormal wear is usually caused by incorrect tyre pressure, improper wheel alignment, out of balance wheel, or severe braking. We recommend you to have it checked to determine the cause of irregular tread wear.
- If the spare tyre wheel differs from the standard tyre wheel, do not perform tyre rotation using a spare wheel.
► A compact spare tyre can be fitted temporarily in place of a tyre that has
been removed during the tyre rotation. However, it must not be included in the regular
tyre rotation sequence.
► If the tyres have arrows (A) indicating the correct direction of rotation, swap the front and rear wheels on the left hand side of the vehicle and the front and rear wheels on the right hand side of the vehicle separately. Keep each tyre on its original side of the vehicle. When fitting the tyres, make sure the arrows point in the direction in which the wheels will turn when the vehicle moves forward. Any tyre whose arrow points in the wrong direction will not perform to its full potential.
► Avoid the combined use of different types of tyres. Using different types of tyres can affect vehicle performance and safety.
