Subaru Forester: In case of emergency / Temporary spare tire

WARNING

  • Never tow a trailer when the temporary spare tire is used. The temporary spare tire is not designed to sustain the towing load. Use of the temporary spare tire when towing can result in failure of the spare tire and/or less stability of the vehicle and may lead to an accident.
  • When a spare tire is mounted or a wheel rim is replaced without the original pressure sensor/transmitter being transferred, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate steadily after blinking for approximately one minute. This indicates the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is unable to monitor all four road wheels. Contact your SUBARU dealer as soon as possible for tire and sensor replacement and/ or system resetting.

CAUTION

Never use any temporary spare tire other than the original. Using other sizes may result in severe mechanical damage to the drivetrain of your vehicle.

The temporary spare tire is smaller and lighter than a conventional tire and is designed for emergency use only. Remove the temporary spare tire and reinstall the conventional tire as soon as possible because the spare tire is designed only for temporary use.

Check the inflation pressure of the temporary spare tire periodically to keep the tire ready for use. For the correct tire pressure, refer to “Temporary spare tires”.

When using the temporary spare tire, note the following.

  • Drive with caution when the temporary spare tire is installed. Avoid hard acceleration and braking, or fast cornering, as control of the vehicle may be lost.
  • Do not exceed 50 mph (80 km/h).
  • Do not put a tire chain on the temporary spare tire. Because of the smaller tire size, a tire chain will not fit properly.
  • Do not use two or more temporary spare tires at the same time.
  • Do not drive over obstacles. This tire has a smaller diameter, so road clearance is reduced.
