■The compact spare tire

  • The compact spare tire is identified by the label "TEMPORARY USE ONLY" on the tire sidewall.

    Use the compact spare tire temporarily, and only in an emergency.

  • Make sure to check the tire inflation pressure of the compact spare tire.

■When the compact spare tire is equipped

The vehicle becomes lower when driving with the compact spare tire compared to when driving with standard tires.

■After completing the tire change

The tire pressure warning system must be reset.

■When using the compact spare tire

As the compact spare tire is not equipped with a tire pressure warning valve and transmitter, low inflation pressure of the spare tire will not be indicated by the tire pressure warning system. Also, if you replace the compact spare tire after the tire pressure warning light comes on, the light remains on.

■When reinstalling the wheel ornament (steel wheels except compact spare tire)

Align the cutout of the wheel ornament with the valve stem as shown in the illustration.
