First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

New tyres

Replacing tyres

Additional information for vehicles with a tyre monitoring display

On vehicles with a tyre monitoring display, the system will have to relearn every time a new wheel is fitted, regardless of whether the wheel in question is being fitted in the same or in a different position   .

Further information about the tyre monitoring system, how it functions and what you must know   .

WARNING

New tyres will have to be run in as they will initially have reduced grip and braking effect.

WARNING

Wheels must have the necessary freedom of operation. If the wheels do not have the necessary freedom of operation, the tyre could rub on parts of the running gear, the vehicle body and the brake lines. This can lead to a fault in the brake system and to tread separation and thus to a tyre bursting.

Despite identical size details, the actual size of the various tyre makes may vary from these specified dimensions, or the tyre contours may vary considerably.

Volkswagen-approved tyres are guaranteed to have the dimensions that are suitable for the vehicle. The salesperson will have to provide a certificate from the tyre manufacturer for other tyre makes to prove that the tyre is also suitable for the vehicle. This certificate must be stored in a safe place in the vehicle.
