Ford Explorer 2020-2021 Service Manual / Chassis / Suspension / Wheels and Tires / Description and Operation - Safety Precautions - Overview

Overview

  WARNING: Before servicing any tire, ask the customer if anyone injected a tire sealant into the tire. Tire sealants may be flammable and can burn or explode if exposed to an ignition source. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury.

NOTICE: Do not clean aluminum wheels with steel wool, abrasive-type cleaners or strong detergents or damage to the wheel finish may occur.

NOTICE: When removing balance weights from a wheel, use only industry standard tools. To remove clip-on style balance weights, use designated wheel weight removal pliers. For adhesive style balance weights, use designated adhesive weight removal pliers or a non-metal adhesive weight scraper tool. Never use a screwdriver or any other sharp metallic instrument to remove adhesive wheel weights. If needed, denatured alcohol may be used to assist in removing any adhesive residue from the wheel. Failure to follow these guidelines could result in damage to the wheel finish.

Factory-installed tires and wheels are designed to operate satisfactorily with loads up to and including full-rated load capacity when inflated to recommended inflation pressures.

Correct tire pressure and driving techniques have an important influence on tire life. Heavy cornering, excessively rapid acceleration and unnecessary sharp braking increase tire wear.

To equalize tire wear, the tires should be rotated at recommended intervals.
