Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Run-flat tyres, PAX, inflating tyre

Observe the following important points when inflating the tyre:
–  Only inflate after fitting the tyre with valve core installed. Check whether the beads have properly seated at 1 bar.
–  If one of the beads is not seated properly, do not let air out of the tyre, but apply the fitting roller to the appropriate bead and press on lightly while turning. The bead will then seat itself properly.
   
–  Then fill up with air until the specified inflation pressure for the vehicle is reached. Tyre gas for standard tyres can also be used.
  Note
Do NOT overfill tyre (e.g. up to 3.5 bar), even briefly, as is permissible with standard tyres.
