NOTES

M+S (mud and snow) tires have a recognized level of winter performance and need not be replaced.

The M+S marking on the tire sidewall indicates an 'all season' tire designed for use all year round, including cold temperatures, snow, and ice.

NOTES

A dedicated winter tire often has a lower speed rating than the Original Equipment (OE) tire, and the vehicle must; therefore, be driven within the speed limitation of the tire. Consult your Retailer/Authorized Repairer for further information.

This symbol identifies dedicated winter tires, which can be fitted if optimum winter traction is required, or the vehicle is to be used in more extreme winter conditions.

Winter tires must be fitted to all 4 wheels.

For optimum traction, tires should be run in for at least 100 miles (160 kilometers) on dry roads, prior to driving on snow or ice.

Use of dedicated winter tires may require a change of wheel size, depending on the original choice of wheel. All 4 wheels must be changed.

If fitted with standard rubber valves, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning lamp will flash for 75 seconds and then remain illuminated. The Message center will also display TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM FAULT.

When the original wheels and tires are refitted, the vehicle will need to travel a short distance to reset the TPMS and extinguish the warning lamp.
