Only trained personnel may perform any assembly work on run-flat tyres and ultra-high-performance tyres.
If fitted, check tyre pressure sensor using vehicle diagnostic tester, and renew it as necessary.
–  Ensure proper assembly temperature for tyres → Chapter.
  Note
If bonded wheel trims are fitted, treat them with great care. The surface is susceptible to scratches.
If the wheel trim is damaged, renew wheel rim.

  Caution
Risk of damage to wheel rim and tyre due to excessive bead seating pressure.
Never set the bead seating pressure above 3.3 bar.
–  Fill tyres to a maximum tyre pressure of 3.3 bar (bead seating pressure).
–  When the tyre bead does not lie completely against the wheel rim flange: deflate the tyre, press tyre bead off wheel rim flange and generously coat again with tyre assembly paste.
–  If the tyre beads are seated perfectly against the shoulder of the wheel rim, increase pressure to 4 bar.
–  If the tyre beads are not completely seated against the shoulder of the wheel rim, press off tyre → Chapter, and install it again.
–  Screw in valve insert.
–  Inflate tyre until specified tyre pressure is attained.
–  Balance wheel → Chapter.
  Note
Avoid any severe braking and acceleration manoeuvres for the first 100 or 200 km driven. Otherwise, the tyres may turn on the wheel rim due to the tyre assembly paste.
