USING WINTER TYRES

NOTES

M+S (mud and snow) tyres have a recognised level of winter performance, but the M+S marking does not necessarily indicate that the tyre is a dedicated winter tyre.

The M+S marking on the sidewall of an all-season tyre indicates that it is designed for all year round use. However, an all-season tyre is normally inferior to a dedicated winter tyre in conditions specific to winter, e.g., in cold temperatures, snow, and ice.

In many countries, legislation exists that requires the use of winter tyres during specified periods of the year.

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

NOTES

A dedicated winter tyre often has a lower speed rating than the original equipment tyre. Consequently, the vehicle must be driven within the speed limitation of the tyre. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer for further information. In markets that require a tyre's maximum speed label to be fitted, the label should be placed within the driver's field of vision. Maximum speed labels can be obtained from the tyre retailer.

The tyre pressures indicated on the tyre information label apply to the original equipment tyres for use in all conditions. If a reduced speed-rated tyre is fitted, the recommended pressures are only suitable up to the maximum speed indicated by the tyre speed rating and associated warning sticker with normal loading. Vehicle speed should be restricted to below 160 km/h (100 mph) when heavily loaded.

Winter tyres must be fitted to all four wheels.

For optimum traction, winter tyres should be run-in for at least 160 kilometres on dry roads, before driving on snow or ice.

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

If fitted with standard rubber valves, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning lamp flashes for 75 seconds and then remains illuminated. The instrument panel also displays TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM FAULT.

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