Avon Tire Spinning

Tire spinning is dangerous. Excessive spinning can cause a tire to "explode".

Avoid tire spinning. The centrifugal forces created by a rapidly spinning tire can cause an explosion by tearing the tire apart. These forces act on the complete tire structure, & can be of such magnitude as to break beads as well as rupturing the entire carcass.

When stuck on ice, snow, mud, or wet grass, etc., the vehicle should be rocked gently (alternately using forward & reverse gears) with the least amount of wheel spinning. DO NOT exceed 35 mph as indicated on the speedometer. Never allow anyone to st& near or directly ahead of or behind the spinning tire.

Do not spin if a drive wheel is off the ground. Serious personal injury or death can result from the explosion of a spinning tire.
