Warning (Continued)

. Underinflated tires pose the same danger as

overloaded tires. The

resulting crash could cause serious injury. Check all

tires frequently to maintain the

recommended pressure. Tire pressure should be checked when the tires are cold.

. Overinflated tires are more likely to be cut, punctured, or broken by a sudden

impact such as when

hitting a pothole. Keep

tires at the recommended pressure.

. Worn or old tires can

cause a crash. If the tread is badly worn,

replace them.



Warning (Continued)

. Replace any tires that have been damaged by impacts with potholes, curbs, etc.

. Improperly repaired tires can cause a crash. Only

the dealer or an authorized tire service center should

repair, replace, dismount, and mount the tires.

. Do not spin the tires in excess of 56 km/h

(35 mph) on slippery

surfaces such as snow, mud, ice, etc. Excessive spinning may cause the tires to explode.

See Tire Pressure for High-Speed Operation 0 357 for inflation

pressure adjustment for high-speed driving.





All-Season Tires

This vehicle may come with all-season tires. These tires are designed to

provide good overall performance on most road surfaces and weather

conditions. Original equipment tires designed to GM's specific tire

performance criteria have a TPC

specification code molded onto the sidewall. Original equipment

all-season tires can be identified by the last two characters of this TPC code, which will be MS.

Consider installing winter tires on the vehicle if frequent driving on snow or ice-covered roads is expected.

All-season tires provide adequate

performance for most winter driving

conditions, but they may not offer the same level of traction or performance as winter tires on snow or ice-covered roads. See Winter Tires 0 349.

Winter Tires

This vehicle was not originally

equipped with winter tires. Winter tires are designed for increased

traction on snow and ice-covered

roads. Consider installing winter tires
