Spare wheel informationSpare wheel information  - How to change a tyre - For emergencies - Mitsubishi ASX Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi ASX

Check the air pressure of the spare tyre frequently and make sure it is ready for emergency use at any time.

Maintaining the spare wheel at the highest specified air pressure will ensure that it can always be used under any conditions (city/high-speed driving, varying load weight, etc.).

The spare wheel is stored beneath the luggage floor board of the luggage compartment.

• The pressure should be periodically checked and maintained at the specified CAUTION

• The pressure should be periodically checked and maintained at the specified pressure while the tyre is stowed.

Driving with an insufficient tyre pressure can lead to an accident. If you have no choice but to drive with an insufficient tyre pressure, keep your speed down and inflate the tyre to the correct pressure as soon as possible. (Refer to “Tyre inflation pressures”.) • When the tread wear indicators appear, the tyre must be replaced.

Refer to “Wheel condition”.

Temporary spare wheel (spare wheel with a speed limit label)*

The T155/90D16 or T125/90D16 size spare wheel is stored beneath the luggage floor board of the luggage compartment. It is designed to save space in the luggage compartment and its light weight makes it easy to handle in the event of a flat tyre.

• The temporary spare wheel is for temporary use only and should be removed as soon as the original wheel can be repaired or replaced.

• The vehicle must not be driven at speeds in excess of 80 km/h (50 mph) while using the temporary spare wheel.

• The T155/90D16 or T125/90D16 size spare wheel is not as good as a standard wheel in controllability and stability.

When you purchase a 215/65R16 size spare wheel, be sure to purchase the type designed specially for your vehicle from your MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorized Service Point.

• Do not use tyre chains with your temporary spare wheel. Because of the smaller tyre size, a tyre chain will not fit properly.

If a front tyre becomes flat when using tyre chains, first replace a rear wheel with the temporary spare wheel and then use the removed rear wheel to replace the flat front wheel so that you can continue to use the chains.
