General information about wheels and tires

The tires have good road holding characteristics and offer good handling on dry and wet surfaces. It
should be noted however that the tires have been developed to give these features on snow/ice-free
Certain models are equipped with "all-season" tires, which provide a somewhat higher degree of
road holding on slippery surfaces than tires without the "all-season" rating. However, for optimum
road holding on icy or snow-covered roads - we recommend suitable winter tires on all four wheels.
