USING WINTER TYRES

NOTES

M+S (mud and snow) tyres have a level of winter performance.

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

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

NOTES

A dedicated winter tyre often has a lower speed rating than the original equipment tyre. The vehicle must, therefore, 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 symbol identifies dedicated winter tyres, which can be fitted 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 maximum speed indicated by the tyre's speed rating and associated warning sticker with normal loading. Vehicle speed should be restricted to below 160 km/h (100 mph) when the vehicle is heavily loaded.

Winter tyres must be fitted to all four wheels.

For optimum traction, tyres should be run-in for at least 160 km 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.
