Repairers may find it challenging to find information regarding tire replacement documentation and when to replace all four(4) or two(2) tire’s to match the opposite side on the same axle.

Some OEM Repair websites may not have this information listed. DEG Suggests locating this information in the vehicle owners manual which would typically be found in the glove box of the vehicle or found online using the digital copy. Using the index of the manual, look up “tires” or “tyres” for quick search of the manual.

DEG has made a spreadsheet of all major vehicle manufacturer links to access owner’s manuals online in digital format.

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY – it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
