If you are replacing tyres on your car, it is essential that they meet the minimum standards that are detailed on your Tyre Placard (see example below), which can be found in the glove compartment door, inside the driver's door sill or another accessible location.
When you do replace your tyres, you must ensure that the load carrying capacity is at least equal to, if not better than, the sizes shown on the placard.
You must also comply with local road and vehicle legislation. Legislation requirements can vary from state to state.
Check with the transport authority in your state to confirm the legislation that applies to you:
- The NSW Roads and Traffic Authority
- Queensland Mainroads
- Mainroads Western Australia
- Northern Territory Dept of Transport and Works
- Dept of Transport Tasmania
- Transport SA
- ACT Dept of Urban Services
Your nearest JAX Tyres Service Centre can advise specific recommendations for your vehicle.
