Today, automobile manufacturers offer
Plus options on many new car models. One of the most frequent upgrades a car
owner makes is fitting new wheels & tires. It is important that the plus
sized replacement tire/wheel assembly retains the original overall diameter
& that there is enough clearance in the wheel well to accommodate the plus
sized replacement through the entire range of wheel/suspension travel &
Before you replace your tires, always consult the vehicle owner's manual &
follow the vehicle manufacturer's replacement tire recommendations. Vehicle
handling may be significantly affected by a change in tire size or type.
When selecting tires that are different than the original equipment size,
see a professional installer in order to make certain that proper clearance,
load carrying capacity & inflation pressure is selected. Never exceed the
maximum load capacity & inflation pressure listed on the sidewall of the
tire. Always drive safely & obey all traffic laws. Avoid sudden, sharp
turns or lane changes. Failure to follow this warning may result in loss of
control of the vehicle, leading to an accident & serious injury or death.
Tire Technician must ensure that the plus sized replacement tire carries a
rated load capacity equal to or greater than the original equipment tire,
& must use the proper inflation pressure. (Never exceed the maximum tire
pressure shown on the sidewall.) Please refer to your vehicle's Owner's
Manual. Your Dunlop dealer can discuss with you Plus sizes for your vehicle.
