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.
