At movement on wet or dry road, coupling of winter tyres is worse, than at the usual.

Type and design of established winter tyres should correspond to type and a design of the tyres established on the car. At installation шипованной rubbers be guided by the specifications accepted in given region.

Installation of winter tyres

In order to avoid non-uniformity of coupling of wheels with road and losses of controllability of the car winter tyres should be established on all wheels. The removed tyres store in a cool dry place. At installation of tyres keep the order of their shift accepted earlier.

The prevention

Pressure in tyres should correspond to norm.

Do not exceed the speed limit of movement established for winter tyres.

Instructions for use chains

Establish chains of the suitable size, being guided by local specifications.

Chains on forward wheels should as it is possible to adjoin to the tyre more densely.

At clothing of chains be guided by the instruction of their manufacturer. If on wheels there are decorative overlays remove them in order to avoid damage by chains.

Security measures

The maximum speed of movement with chains of 50 km/hour (or there should correspond established by the manufacturer of chains, depending on what speed more low).

At movement avoid sharp turns and arrivals on potholes, emission of the car from a track otherwise is possible.

Safety measures for cast aluminium disks

Throughout run of the first 1600 km check an inhaling of nuts of wheels.

After shift or wheel replacement check an inhaling of nuts of wheels throughout 1600 km of run after wheel removal.

At using chains be careful not to damage disks.

Nuts of fastening of disks should be firm, tighten nuts only a key intended for aluminium disks.

At wheel balancing use only firm грузики (or equivalent) which fasten a rubber or plastic hammer.
