Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Tyres with flange protection

The tyre industry produces tyres with flange protection for alloy wheels. The flange protection is intended to protect alloy wheels from damage due to contact with kerbs.
The combination of tyres with flange protection, steel wheels and a full-size hub cap can lead to the loss of the hub cap during operation. The flexing of the tyre separates the hub cap from its seat.
  WARNING
When fitting tyres, always make sure that only tyres without flange protection are fitted to steel rims.
   
The figure shows a prohibited combination of steel rim, full-size hub cap and a tyre with flange protection.
A -  Flange protection
B -  Flange of a steel rim
C -  Full-size hub cap
  WARNING
This combination must never be fitted!
