Observe G3-ICE - Car Guide Review

For optimal performance and stud retention, please avoid overly aggressive braking, turning, or accelerating during the initial break-in period:
Less than 80km/h = 100 km break in period
Greater than 80km/h = 300 km break in period
This initial break-in period ensures that the stud has been given sufficient time to seat within the pin hole. In the case where lubricants are used during the installation process moderate driving during this period gives the lubricant time to dry, reducing the likelihood of the stud ejecting from the pin hole.

For severe winter conditions.
