The indicator of wear which becomes visible is built in tires of the car when depth of a protector becomes less than 1,6 mm. If the indicator of wear is looked through on two and more nearby paths of a protector, it is necessary to replace the tire. The protector is more strongly worn-out, the drift possibility is higher.

On winter tires limiting residual depth of a protector makes 4 mm.

Periodically check a condition of tires, existence on them such damages as cuts, an otsloyeniye of a protector, a crack. At detection of the specified damages consult in car-care center service of possibility of further operation of the tire.

At replacement of tubeless tires for a rating it is necessary to replace the gate new.
