Tires degrade over time, even when they are not being used on the road. It is recommended that tires generally be replaced when they are 6 years or older. Heat caused by hot climates or frequent high loading conditions can accelerate the aging process. You should replace the spare tire when you replace the other road tires due to the aging of the spare tire. The period in which the tire was manufactured (both week and year) is indicated by a 4-digit number.

Refer to Tire Labeling.

WARNING

Always use tires that are in good condition

Driving with worn tires is dangerous. Reduced braking, steering, and traction could result in an accident.

Replacing just one tire is dangerous. It could cause poor handling and poor braking resulting in loss of vehicle control. Toyota strongly recommends that you replace all four tires at the same time. If you replace only two tires, the new tires should be installed on the rear of the vehicle.
