Toyota Yaris: Tire Information (U.S.A.) / Tire Maintenance

Toyota Yaris XP210 (2020-2021) Owner's Manual / Customer Information  and Reporting Safety Defects / Tire Information (U.S.A.) / Tire Maintenance

Improper or inadequate vehicle maintenance can cause tires to wear abnormally. Here are some important maintenance points:

Tire Inflation Pressure

Inspect all tire pressure monthly (including the spare) when the tires are cold. Maintain recommended pressures for the best ride, top handling, and minimum tire wear. Use the pressures specified on the vehicle tire information placard or tire label for optimum service.

Tire Rotation

To equalize tire wear and extend tire life, Toyota recommends that tire rotation is carried out at the same interval as tire inspection.

Toyota Yaris. Tire Maintenance

Inspect the tires for uneven wear and damage. Abnormal wear is usually caused by one or a combination of the following:

  • Incorrect tire pressure
  • Improper wheel alignment
  • Out-of-balance wheel
  • Severe braking

After rotation, inflate all tire pressures to specification and inspect the lug nuts for tightness.

NOTICE

Rotate unidirectional tires and radial tires that have an asymmetrical tread pattern or studs only from front to rear, not from side to side. Tire performance will be weakened if rotated from side to side.

Replacing a Tire

If a tire wears evenly, a wear indicator will appear as a solid band across the tread. Replace the tire when this happens.

You should replace the tire before the band crosses the entire tread.

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.

Safety Practices

The way you drive has a great deal to do with your tire mileage and safety. So cultivate good driving habits for your own benefit.

  • Observe posted speed limits and drive at speeds that are safe for the existing weather conditions
  • Avoid fast starts, stops and turns
  • Avoid potholes and objects on the road
  • Do not run over curbs or hit the tire against the curb when parking

NOTICE

If you feel a sudden vibration or ride disturbance while driving or you suspect your tire or vehicle has been damaged, immediately reduce your speed. Drive with caution until you can safely pull off the road. Stop and inspect the tire for damage. If the tire is under-inflated or damaged, deflate it, remove the tire and rim and replace it with your spare tire. If you cannot detect a cause, have the vehicle towed to the nearest vehicle or tire dealer to have the vehicle inspected.
