Since the driving torque can be applied to the 4 wheels, the driving performance of the vehicle when operating in 4-wheel drive is greatly affected by the condition of the tyres.

Pay close attention to the tyres.

► Install only the specified tyres on all wheels.

Refer to “Tyres and wheels”.

► Be sure all 4 tyres and wheels are the same size and type.

When it is necessary to replace any of the tyres or wheels, replace all 4 tyres.

► All tyres should be rotated before the wear difference between the front and rear tyres is recognizable.

Good vehicle performance cannot be expected if there is a difference in wear between tyres. Refer to “Tyre rotation”.

► Check the tyre inflation pressure regularly.

► Always use tyres of the same size, same type, and same brand, and which have no wear differences. Using tyres of different size, type, brands or degree of wear, will increase the differential oil temperature, resulting in possible damage to the driving system. Further, the drive train will be subjected to excessive loading, possibly leading to oil leakage, component seizure, or other serious faults.
