  1. Peel the backing off the correction sticker and apply it to the certification label in the exact position shown. Press the correction sticker to make sure it’s properly affixed.

NOTE:

  • Start by aligning the right edge of the correction sticker with the tire size text to the right, and the bottom of the sticker with the text underneath the vehicle weight capacities. This helps ensure proper placement of the sticker.
  • Avoid touching the back side of the sticker to prevent transferring oil from your skin to the adhesive on the sticker.
