REMAIN IN CONTROL ON THE SNOW
This section contains some recommendations from Pirelli technicians, to obtain the highest performance and safety from winter tires.
When driving, avoid accelerating and braking suddenly, which could lead to loss of adhesion on snow- or ice-covered surfaces. Also, react smoothly on the steering wheel
Uniform equipment is essential to ensure optimum performance and safe driving. Always use four winter tires of the same make and that have similar construction characteristics.
Tire pressures must be checked regularly. This check must be done when the tires are cold. If necessary, adjust the pressure, still on the cold tire. Use the pressure values indicated by the car manufacturer.
Pay attention to the speed limit imposed by the rating shown on the tires’ sidewall (on the outside). If one wishes, the car can be equipped with winter tires with a lower speed rating than required; your vehicle speed should be adjusted accordingly.
The winter tire's performance on snow remains optimum until the tread depth goes down to 5/32”. However, by law, it is permitted to continue driving, also on winter tires, until the tread depth goes down to 2/32”.
Rotating the tires makes it possible to wear the tread uniformly and contributes to extend the tires' life. Winter tires should be rotated in the correct sequence every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.
When not in use, the tires should be stored, preferably inflated on rims, and the pressure should be checked periodically.
The best way to store them is vertically in a single row on shelves, at least 4 inches above ground level, with the walls in vertical position, so as not to alter the profile.
