WARNING

Driving on a flat tire will cause permanent damage to the tire. Re-inflating a tire after it has been driven on while severely underinflated or flat may cause a blowout and a serious crash. Never attempt to re-inflate a tire that has been driven on while severely underinflated or flat. In this case, repair or replace the flat tire as soon as possible.

  • Follow jacking instructions to reduce the possibility of personal injury.

WARNING

Changing tires

  • Never attempt vehicle repairs in the traffic lanes of a public road or highway.
  • Always move the vehicle completely off the road and onto the shoulder before trying to change a tire. The jack should be used on firm level ground. If you cannot find a firm level place off the road, call a towing service company for assistance.
  • Be sure to use the correct front and rear jacking positions on the vehicle; never use the bumpers or any other part of the vehicle for jacking support.
  • The vehicle can roll off the jack causing serious injury or death.
  • Do not go under a vehicle that is supported by a jack.
  • Do not start or run the engine while the vehicle is on the jack.
  • Do not allow anyone to remain in the vehicle while it is on the jack.
  • Make sure any children present are in a secure place, away from the road and from the vehicle to be raised with the jack.

WARNING

Tire jack

Do not place any portion of your body under a vehicle that is only supported by a jack since the vehicle can easily roll off the jack. Use vehicle support stands.
