- The OE Load Index must be maintained at all times to provide sufficient performance to carry the weight of the vehicle as designed by the manufacturer.
- The OE Speed Rating should be maintained at all times to maintain the handling characteristics of the vehicle and the maximum speed capability of the vehicle. If the desired speed rating is not available in the tire being purchased, then the highest available speed rating would be the desired fitment.
- All 4 tires on a vehicle should be of the same speed and load index and of the same tread pattern and tread wear.
- Tires with the most tread should always be mounted on the rear axle of the vehicle, regardless of Rear Wheel Drive or Front Wheel Drive application.
Warning: If the replacement tires are different in speed rating than the OE tires then the maximum speed capability of the vehicle is limited to the lower speed rated tires, and the handling characteristics of the vehicle will be compromised, at all speeds.
If the replacement tires are a lower load index than the OE tires, then the maximum load capability of the vehicle is limited to the maximum load capability of the tires.
If dissimilar or mismatched tires are mounted on front and rear axles of the vehicle, then the dissimilar or mismatched tires could result in loss of control of the vehicle.
