GENERAL INFORMATION

Check of a condition of tires

Condition of tires it is necessary to check each 10 000 km of a run of the car. Tires should be replaced if depth of the drawing of a protector decreases to 1,6 mm. After replacement of tires at least, the first 250 km of a run it is necessary to reckon with the lowered coupling of tires with a paving and to avoid the movement at the increased speeds, the situations demanding sharp braking, and also the movement on turns on the verge of coupling.
