Consult your owner’s manual for specific tire information.
Clearance around tires must be maintained. Increasing tire size may require an increased rim width. Inspect tires closely for sufficient clearance.
Always wear protective eyewear when installing inner tubes or tires.
You should check the condition of your inner tubes on a regular basis.
When replacing tires, be sure to also replace the inner tubes. Stretched inner tubes can crease and fail due to thinning of the inner tube rubber.
Consult your bicycle dealer for correct rim strip replacement.
Make sure your inner tube size markings match the tire size.
Use tire only for designated terrain, on an appropriate bicycle and using proper safety equipment at all times.
Follow tire pressure guidelines located on your tire.
Check tire pressure before every ride.
Check your valve cores for damage. If valve cores are damaged, replace them.
Check your tires for damage before and after riding. Punctured, cracked, bulging or blistered tires should be replaced immediately. If not replaced, damage can result in sudden and complete tire failure.
Check to ensure the beads of the tires are fully and evenly seated around the entire circumference of the rims before every ride.
After replacing worn tires, take time to become acquainted with the handling and performance of your new tires.
Do not cut, sipe or otherwise modify your tires.
Check your wheel assembly for trueness and even spoke tension before use and each time the tire is removed or replaced.
Check for broken or damaged spokes and replace as necessary.
Replace bent or damaged rims or wheels immediately.
Liquid sealants should only be used in the following types of tires: Tubeless Road, Tubular, and Tubeless Ready.
Tube-type tires should only be used in conjunction with an inner tube on an approved rim.
Store your tires in a safe place at a constant temperature.
Do not store tires in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
Allowing tires to stand in oil, gasoline or other chemicals may have an adverse affect on the rubber compounds of the tire.
Failure to follow these guidelines can result in accelerated tread wear and may cause catastrophic tire failure.
