Wearindicators
Check the tread depth frequently.
Minimum legal depth: 1.6 mm.
Check the wear indicators and the
tread depth regularly as worn tyres
have reduced grip. The wear indica-
tors show when a tyre is at its safe
wear limit.

Under-inflated
overheat, leading to struc-
tural damage and the risk of
a blow-out.
Impacts with kerbs, potholes
or hidden obstructions in the road
can cause internal damage and pre-
mature failure of the tyre. Such im-
pacts can also cause misalignment
of the steering geometry and subse-
quent rapid tyre wear.
Advice
We therefore recommend that you
have the tyres and suspension
geometries checked after any such
incidents.
Prolonged driving on poor surfaces
may be the cause of damage which
may only become evident at a later
date.
If replacing your tyres, it is essential
to use the tyre sizes that are recom-
mended for your vehicle.
Contact a CITROËN dealer.
tyres
can
Inspect the tyres regularly for wear
and damage such as cuts, cracks or
bulges, etc.
Remove any foreign bodies (stones,
pieces of metal) that may have
pierced the tyre. They could cause
further damage to the tyre carcass.
Correctly inflated tyres provide:
Optimum roadholding.
Precise, light steering.
Improved fuel economy.
Increased tyre life.
Use the tyre pressures recommend-
ed by CITROËN.
Check the tyre pressures when the
tyres are cold, on a frequent basis.
Never reduce the pressure of a
hottyre
Puncture
A punctured tyre should always be
removed from the rim and thoroughly
examined for any secondary dam-
age before attempting any repair.
When a repair is possible, it should
be carried out as soon as possible to
prevent further damage to the tyre.
Tyre repair should be carried out by
a tyre specialist who will assume re-
sponsibility for the repair.

    I cannot find the way to display how far the remaining fuel in the tank will take me. This used to be displayed on my old 2007 Picasso. Is it me or is this no longer possible?
