M+S tires

Mercedes-Benz G-Class / Mercedes-Benz G-Class Owners Manual / Wheels and tires / Winter operation / M+S tires

WARNING
M+S tires with a tire tread depth of less than 1/6 in (4 mm) are not suitable for use in winter and do not provide sufficient traction. There is a risk of an accident.

M+S tires with a tread depth of less than 1/6 in (4 mm) must be replaced immediately.

WARNING
The spare wheel and M+S tires have different tire characteristics. Driving characteristics can be severely impaired when you mount the spare wheel. There is a risk of an accident.

You should therefore adapt your driving style and drive carefully. Have the spare wheel replaced with a new wheel with an M+S tire at the nearest qualified specialist workshop.

At temperatures below 45 º F(+7 º C), use allseason tires or winter tires. Both types of tire are identified by the M+S marking.

Not all tires with the M+S marking provide the driving characteristics of winter tires. In addition to the M+S marking, winter tires also have the tire snowflake symbol on the
tire wall. Tires with this marking fulfill the requirements of the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) and the Rubber Association of Canada (RAC) regarding snow traction, and were specially developed for driving on snow. Only these tires will allow driving safety systems such as ABS and ESP® to function optimally in winter, since these tires have been designed specifically for driving on snow.

Use M+S tires of the same make and tread on all wheels to maintain safe handling characteristics.

Always observe the maximum permissible speed specified for the M+S tires you have mounted.

When you have installed the M+S tires: X Check the tire pressures .

Restart the tire pressure monitor .

You can obtain information about winter tires that have been approved by Mercedes-Benz especially for your vehicle at any Mercedes-Benz Service center.
