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.
Some tyre manufacturers also use the designation “XL” for Extra Load tyres.
Tyres with the designation “Reinforced” or “Extra Load (XL)” are of equal quality.

XL V winter tyres allow a higher speed, but this does not mean that the top speed of a V tyre is 240 km/h for every vehicle.
The same conditions apply to these tyres as to V winter tyres without a special code!
