Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Technical conditions

The wheel and tyre combinations and conversions listed in the tables of the individual vehicles refer exclusively to genuine wheel rims.
Approval of wheel and tyre combinations or a change to wheels from the accessories trade is not possible with the certificate statement attached here.
Tubeless radial tyres may only be fitted to rims with a safety hump feature on the shoulder.
Tyres with run-flat properties (reinforced side walls) may only be used on disc-type wheels with an extended hump and on vehicles with a tyre pressure monitoring system → Chapter.
If the wheel and tyre combinations listed are used, the associated tyre inflation pressures must be adhered to. Tyre pressure information is located on the tyre pressure plate on the inside of the tank flap or on the driver side B-pillar.
Sufficient clearance to the wheels and tyres at parts of the wheel housing, suspension and braking system is assured if the notes and specifications established in the certificate statement are observed in all operating conditions.
Unless otherwise stated, snow chains may only be fitted to the drive wheels. On all-wheel drive vehicles, however, only the front wheels may be fitted with snow chains.
Additional wheel housing extensions (flaps)
   
For type approval technical reasons some vehicles require wheel housing extensions (flaps) on the wing or bumper -arrows- when using certain wheel and tyre combinations.
Please check if there is a requirement to remove the flaps.
The information is located in the overview table for the respective vehicle.
