What is the correct tyre pressure for my car?
The correct tyre pressure will be shown in one of three places – a label on the driver's side door frame, inside the glove box, or listed in the owner's manual. Tyre pressure specifications are meant for when the tyre is cold so if the vehicle has been driven or the tyre has been sitting in direct sunlight, the tyre pressure may read higher than the manufacturer's specification and should not be adjusted until the tyre is cold.
When should I rotate my tyres?
Tyres should be rotated in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation. If no recommendation is shown in the owner's manual, tyres should be rotated every 10,000 kilometres.
How do I know the difference in tyre patterns – Asymmetric, Directional and Symmetric?
Asymmetric – The tyre will have "Outside" printed on one side of the tyre and "Inside" printed on the other side. An asymmetric tyre will have differences in tread pattern design between the inside and outside of the tyre tread area, which necessitates proper mounting.
Directional – A directional tyre will have an arrow and the word "Rotation," indicating the direction the arrow should roll when the vehicle is moving forward. If the arrow does not roll forward when the vehicle is moving forward, the tyre has been mounted improperly. Most directional tyres appear to have a "V" design to the tread.
Symmetric – This is a standard tyre and will not have any of the above printed on the sidewall.
My tyres aren't wearing evenly. Why?
This needs to be determined immediately by getting the tyres inspected by a Kumho dealer. If the irregular wear damage is due to inflation problems or mechanical wear such as alignment, the warranty is void.
