USING WINTER TIRES

WARNING

A dedicated winter tire often has a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire. Consequently, the vehicle must be driven within the speed limitation of the winter tire. Consult a retailer/authorized repairer for further information. In markets that require a tire'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 tire retailer. Failure to adhere to the winter tire's speed limit may result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

NOTES

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

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

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

The tire pressures indicated on the tire information label are for use in all conditions on the original equipment tires. If a reduced speed-rating tire is fitted, the recommended pressures are only suitable up to the tire’s maximum speed, with a light vehicle load. Vehicle speed should be restricted to below 100 mph (160 km/h) when normally loaded.

Winter tires must be fitted to all four wheels.

For optimum traction, winter tires should be run in for at least 100 miles (160 km) on dry roads, before 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 four wheels must be changed.

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

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