Tires

Tires

For reasons of proper performance,
safety, and better fuel economy, always
maintain recommended tire inflation
pressures and stay within the
recommended load limits and weight
distribution.

WARNING

Using Different Tire Types:

Driving your vehicle with different
types of tires is dangerous. It could
cause poor handling and poor braking;
leading to loss of control.
Except for the limited use of the
temporary spare tire, use only the
same type tires (radial, bias-belted,
bias-type) on all four wheels.

Using Wrong-Sized Tires:

Using any other tire size than what is
specified for the vehicle (page 9-10)
is dangerous. It could seriously affect
ride, handling, ground clearance, tire
clearance, and speedometer
calibration. This could cause you to
have an accident. Use only tires that
are the correct size specified for the
vehicle.

Maintenance and Care

Owner Maintenance

6-32

Tire Inflation Pressure

WARNING

Always inflate the tires to the correct
pressure:

Overinflation or underinflation of tires
is dangerous. Adverse handling or
unexpected tire failure could result in a
serious accident.
Refer to Tires on page 9-10.

Use only a Mazda-genuine tire valve
cap:

Use of a non-genuine part is
dangerous as the correct tire air
pressure cannot be maintained if the
tire valve becomes damaged. If the
vehicle is driven under this condition,
the tire air pressure will decrease
which could result in a serious
accident. Do not use any part for the
tire valve cap that is not a
Mazda-genuine part.

Inspect all tire pressures monthly
(including the spare) when the tires are
cold. Maintain recommended
pressures for the best ride, handling,
and minimum tire wear.
Refer to the specification charts (page
9-10).

NOTE

x

Always check tire pressure when tires
are cold.

x

Warm tires normally exceed
recommended pressures. Do not
release air from warm tires to adjust
the pressure.

x

Underinflation can cause reduced
fuel economy, uneven and
accelerated tire wear, and poor
sealing of the tire bead, which will
deform the wheel and cause
separation of tire from rim.

x

Overinflation can produce a harsh
ride, uneven and accelerated tire
wear, and a greater possibility of
damage from road hazards.
Keep your tire pressure at the correct
levels. If one frequently needs
inflating, have it inspected.

Tire Rotation

WARNING

Rotate tires periodically:

Irregular tire wear is dangerous. To
equalize tread wear for maintaining
good performance in handling and
braking, rotate the tires periodically or
sooner if irregular wear develops.
Please refer to Scheduled maintenance
for your tire rotation interval.

During rotation, inspect them for
correct balance.

1. Forward
Do not include (TEMPORARY USE
ONLY) spare tire in rotation.

Maintenance and Care

Owner Maintenance

6-33

Also, inspect them for uneven wear
and damage. Abnormal wear is usually
caused by one or a combination of the
following:

x

Incorrect tire pressure

x

Improper wheel alignment

x

Out-of-balance wheel

x

Severe braking

After rotation, inflate all tire pressures
to specification on page 9-10 and
inspect the lug nuts for tightness.

CAUTION

Rotate unidirectional tires and radial
tires that have an asymmetrical tread
pattern or studs only from front to rear,
not from side to side. Tire performance
will be reduced if rotated from side to
side.

Replacing a Tire

WARNING

Always use tires that are in good
condition:

Driving with worn tires is dangerous.
Reduced braking, steering, and
traction could result in an accident.

Replace all four tires at the same
time:

Replacing just one tire is dangerous. It
could cause poor handling and poor
braking resulting in loss of vehicle
control. Mazda strongly recommends
that you replace all four tires at the
same time.

If a tire wears evenly, a wear indicator
will appear as a solid band across the
tread.
Replace the tire when this happens.

1. New tread
2. Worn tread
3. Tread wear indicator

You should replace the tire before the
band crosses the entire tread.

Maintenance and Care

Owner Maintenance

6-34

NOTE

Tires degrade over time, even when
they are not being used on the road. It
is recommended that tires generally be
replaced when they are 6 years or
older. Heat caused by hot climates or
frequent high loading conditions can
accelerate the aging process. You
should replace the spare tire when you
replace the other road tires due to the
aging of the spare tire. The period in
which the tire was manufactured (both
week and year) is indicated by a 4-digit
number.
Refer to Tire Labeling on page 8-23.

Temporary Spare Tire

Inspect the temporary spare tire at
least monthly to make sure it is
properly inflated and stored.

NOTE

The temporary spare tire condition
gradually deteriorates even if it has not
been used.

The temporary spare tire is easier to
handle because of its construction
which is lighter and smaller than a
conventional tire. This tire should be
used only for an emergency and only
for a short distance.

Use the temporary spare tire only until
the conventional tire is repaired, which
should be as soon as possible.
Refer to Tires on page 9-10.

CAUTION

¾

Do not use your temporary spare tire
rim with a snow tire or a
conventional tire. Neither will
properly fit and could damage both
tire and rim.

¾

The temporary spare tire has a tread
life of less than 5,000 km (3,000
miles). The tread life may be shorter
depending on driving conditions.

¾

The temporary spare tire is for
limited use, however, if the tread
wear solid-band indicator appears,
replace the tire with the same type of
temporary spare (page 6-34).

NOTE

Tires degrade over time, even when
they are not being used on the road. It
is recommended that tires generally be
replaced when they are 6 years or
older. Heat caused by hot climates or
frequent high loading conditions can
accelerate the aging process. You
should replace the spare tire when you
replace the other road tires due to the
aging of the spare tire. The period in
which the tire was manufactured (both
week and year) is indicated by a 4-digit
number.
Refer to Tire Labeling on page 8-23.

Replacing a Wheel

WARNING

Always use wheels of the correct size
on your vehicle:

Using a wrong-sized wheel is
dangerous. Braking and handling could
be affected, leading to loss of control
and an accident.

CAUTION

A wrong-sized wheel may adversely
affect:

¾

Tire fit

¾

Wheel and bearing life

¾

Ground clearance

¾

Snow-chain clearance

¾

Speedometer calibration

¾

Headlight aim

¾

Bumper height

¾

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

NOTE

x

When replacing a wheel, make sure
the new one is the same as the
original factory wheel in diameter,
rim width, and offset (inset/outset).

x

For details, contact an Authorized
Mazda Dealer.

Proper tire balancing provides the best
riding comfort and helps reduce tread
wear. Out-of-balance tires can cause
vibration and uneven wear, such as
cupping and flat spots.
