Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Checking radial and lateral runout of wheels and tyres, tolerances

Radial and lateral run-out occur when the wheel and tyre do not run absolutely true.
For technical reasons, 100% true running is not possible.
Therefore, the manufacturers of these components allow a precisely determined tolerance.
Aligning the tyre in an unfavourable position on the wheel can cause the maximum allowed tolerance for wheel with tyre to be exceeded.
The table shows the maximum permissible tolerances for a wheel with mounted tyre.
