USING WINTER TYRES

WARNING

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 winter tyre. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer for further information. In markets that require a tyre's maximum speed label to be fitted, make sure to place the label within the driver's field of vision. Maximum speed labels can be obtained from the tyre retailer. Failure to adhere to the winter tyre's speed limit may result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

NOTES

M+S tyres have a recognised level of winter performance. However, the M+S marking on the sidewall of the tyre does not necessarily indicate that the tyre is a dedicated winter tyre. The M+S marking on an all-season tyre indicates that it is designed for use all year round, including in cold temperatures, snow, and ice. The performance of all-season tyres is generally inferior to a dedicated winter tyre in conditions specific to winter.

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

The winter tyres symbol identifies dedicated winter tyres. Dedicated winter tyres are recommended if optimum winter traction is required or the vehicle is to be used in more extreme winter conditions.

The tyre pressures indicated on the tyre information label are for use in all conditions on the original equipment tyres. If a reduced speed-rating tyre is fitted, the recommended pressures are only suitable up to the tyre’s maximum speed, with a normal vehicle load. 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, the 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.
