Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Reinforced and Extra Load (XL) tyres

Some tyre manufacturers have for some time replaced the designation “Reinforced” with the designation “Extra Load”. This designation has long been standard in non-European countries. Technically, there is no difference between them.
