WARNING
Only
use
the
collapsible
spare
tire
in
emer-
gencies
and
drive
very
carefully,
especially
if
it
is
more
than
six
years
old.
The
compressor
and
the
hose
can
become
very
hot
during
operation
which
increases
the
risk of
burn
injuries.
After installing
a
collapsible
spare
tire,
the
tire
pressure
must
be
checked
as
quickly
as
possible
to
reduce
the
risk
of
an
accident.
Do
not
drive
faster
than
50
mph
(80
km/h)
with
the
collapsible
spare
tire.
Driving
faster
than
that
increases
the
risk of
an
accident.
To
reduce
the
risk
of
an
accident,
avoid
hard
acceleration
or
braking
and
driving
fast
around
curves
with
the
collapsible
spare
tire.
Never
drive
using
more
than
one
collapsible
spare
tire,
because
this
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
Normal
tires
or
winter
tires
must
not
be
mounted
on
the
collapsible
spare
tire
rim.
