■Replacing a flat tire

  • Do not touch the disc wheels or the area around the brakes immediately after the vehicle has been driven. After the vehicle has been driven the disc wheels and the area around the brakes will be extremely hot.

    Touching these areas with hands, feet or other body parts while changing a tire, etc. may result in burns.

  • Failure to follow these precautions could cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the tire to fall off, resulting in death or serious injury.
    • Never use oil or grease on the wheel bolts or wheel nuts.

      Oil and grease may cause the wheel nuts to be excessively tightened, leading to bolt or disc wheel damage. In addition, the oil or grease can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel may fall off, causing an accident and resulting in death or serious injury. Remove any oil or grease from the wheel bolts or wheel nuts.

    • Have the wheel nuts tightened with a torque wrench to 76 ft-lbf (103 N-m, 10.5 kgf-m) as soon as possible after changing wheels.
    • Do not attach a heavily damaged wheel ornament, as it may fly off the wheel while the vehicle is moving.
    • When installing a tire, only use wheel nuts that have been specifically designed for that wheel.
    • If there are any cracks or deformations in the bolt screws, nut threads or bolt holes of the wheel, have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.
    • When installing the wheel nuts, be sure to install them with the tapered ends facing inward.

■Replacing a flat tire for vehicles with power back door (if equipped)

In cases such as when replacing tires, make sure to canceling the power back door system. Failure to do so may cause the back door to operate unintentionally if the power back door switch is accidentally touched, resulting in hands and fingers being caught and injured.
