I have fitted the temporary wheel that was supplied with my vehicle. How long can it be used?
We recommend the temporary tyre be replaced with a full size tyre as soon as possible.
The temporary tyre is smaller and the vehicle can only be driven at a maximum of 80 km/h with this tyre fitted. Refer to your Owner’s Manual for further information.
It's important to note to inspect the temporary spare tyre at least monthly to make sure it is properly inflated and stored.
NOTE The temporary spare tyre condition gradually deteriorates even if it has not been used.
Your temporary spare tyre is easier to handle because of its construction which is lighter and smaller than a conventional tyre. This tyre should be used only for an emergency and only for a short distance. Use the temporary spare tyre only until the conventional tyre is repaired, which should be as soon as possible.
The temporary spare tyre has a tread life of less than 5,000 km. The tread life may be shorter depending on driving conditions.
Your temporary spare tyre is for limited use; however, if the tread wear solid-band indicator appears, replace the tyre with the same type of temporary spare.
Can a full-size tyre fit in the temporary tyre well?
The tyre well is designed to accommodate the temporary tyre that was supplied with your vehicle. Due to size differences, a full-size tyre will not fit properly in the well.
