Winter tire safety tips

Make sure to have four wheels that are the same type, size, speed rating and load index.

Vehicle handling is improved

Look for tires marked with the symbol of a peaked mountain with a snowflake.

They meet winter driving standards and are designed for severe snow conditions.

Be sure to install four winter tires that meet the 'snow tire' designation on your vehicle if you drive in severe winter conditions.

This will help you control your vehicle in slippery conditions.

All-season tires or ones marked 'M + S' or 'mud and snow' tires provide safe all-weather performance but may not always be suitable for severe snow conditions.

Only use wide, high performance tires designed as snow tires.

Other types aren't suitable for use on snow-covered roads.
