Snow tyres

These tyres have been specially designed for driving on snow or ice, to be fitted in place of the standard tyres.

Use snow tyres of the same size as the standard tyres provided with the vehicle.

Fiat Dealership will be happy to provide advice concerning the most suitable type of tyre for the customers requirements.

For the type of tyre to be used, inflation pressures and the specifications of snow tyres, follow the instructions given at paragraph Wheels in section Technical Specifications.

The winter features of these tyres are reduced considerably when the tread depth is below 4 mm. In this case, they should be replaced.

Due to the snow tyre features, under normal conditions of use or on long motorway journeys, the performance of these tyres is lower than that of standard tyres.

It is therefore necessary to limit their use to the purposes for which they are certified.

IMPORTANT

When snow tyres are used with a max. speed index below the one that can be reached by the vehicle (increased by 5%), place a notice in the passenger compartment, plainly in the drivers view which states the max. permissible speed of the snow tyres (as per EC Directive).

All four tyres should be the same (brand and track) to ensure greater safety when driving and braking and better drive ability.

Remember that it is inappropriate to change the direction of rotation of tyres.

Code speed limits must however be always strictly observed. The max. speed for snow tyres with T marking , is 190 km/h. The Road Traffic Code speed limits must however be always strictly observed.
