General notes on wheels and tyres (passenger cars)

This information is intended to help you form an opinion as un equivocally and accurately as possible in the event of tyre dam age and related complaints. In this chapter, you will learn a great deal about tyres and also about wheels and rims. Tyres are hi-tech products that are optimally adapted to the op erating conditions of modern vehicles. As with all highly developed technical products, tyres require proper care, maintenance and service. This is essential to ensure safety, performance and comfort for the entire service life of the tyre. Tyres are constantly being further developed. Quality tyres are the result of modern design methods and production processes, as well as continuous quality checks. All tyres that are recom mended by VW have been tested by the technical development department and have been designed specifically for each model in collaboration with the tyre manufacturers. We therefore recommend fitting onlyAthe olkswagen recommended tyre G. V AG do makes when renewing tyres.lkswagen es n

the optimal compromise for vehicle safety must be found. Every tyre is subjected to a wide range of different driving condi tions over its entire service life. It is therefore important that the basic requirements for ensuring optimal tyre performance are met. Proper adjustment of the axle geometry during wheel alignment is an important prerequisite for ensuring the optimum service life of the tyre. Therefore, wheel alignment must always be within the specified tolerance range. Information for wheel alignment Running gear, axles, steering; Rep. gr. 44 . Note

thi sd oc um en

Normal wear and tear on a tyre will alter its characteristics. Tyre noise and vibration could then be the result. These are indications of wear and do not constitute damage in the sense of a tyre defect. Measures can be taken to at least partly eliminate the symptoms. However, in some cases it may not be possible to eliminate tyre noise completely.

Tyre damage and related problems can have various causes. It is therefore very important to ascertain whether the problem has been caused by the tyre or other components.

Legislative conditions for converting wheel and tyre combinations
tee or ac
ility ab y li an pt ce

The manufacturer is issued with a general operating permit (GTA in accordance with 20 StVZO (German road traffic and licensing regulations) and EU operating permit) for the overall vehicle with all parts for specific conversions. Conversions of wheels and tyres can only be carried out under certain conditions. When doing this, the following points must be observed:

If the size of wheel and tyre, with an indication of the load index and the speed symbol, is included in the vehicle GTA and EU operating permit/type approval page 7 , this wheel and tyre combination can be fitted on the vehicle without any prob lem.

For the conversions recommended by VOLKSWAGEN AG (see attachment for parts certificate) there are no general op erating permits in accordance with 22 StVZO (German road traffic and licensing regulations). Unless the wheels and/or tyres are included in the relevant vehicle GTA or EU operating permit/type approval, the vehicle will no longer meet the requirements of the road traffic regu lations if converted. These versions are based on the conditions valid in the European Union and no guarantee can be provided for their completeness. In some cases there are different legislative requirements outside the European Union. The table included in the attached parts certificate shows the VOLKSWAGEN AG recommended and TV NORD Mobilitt GmbH & Co. KG tested wheel and tyre combinations on VW ve hicles and also the conditions to be observed for fitting. The use of genuine disc-type wheels on a vehicle to which they have not been allocated is not permissible.
ht rig py Co t.

The list of possible conversions deals with combinations that meet the requirements of VOLKSWAGEN AG with regards to road handling and road safety. They are the result of practical trials and are therefore recommended by VOLKSWAGEN AG. Refer also to the new vehicle registration documents that were issued from 01.10.2005 page 6 .

2.2

Technical conditions for converting wheel and tyre combinations

The wheel and tyre combinations and conversions listed in the tables of the individual vehicles refer exclusively to Volkswa gen genuine disc-type wheels.

It is not necessary for the wheel and tyre combination specified in the registration certificate part I (certificate of registration) to be fitted. All combinations approved in the vehicle GTA or EU oper ating permit/type approval page 7 may be fitted to the vehicle.

Wheels and Tyres Guide - Archive - Edition 06.2010 Approval of wheel and tyre combinations or a change to wheels from the accessories trade is not possible with the parts certificate 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 page 55 . If the wheel and tyre combinations listed are used, the asso ciated tyre inflation pressures must be adhered to. The tyre inflation pressures for summer tyres can be found on the stick er on the inside of the tank flap or in the tables of the individual vehicles. 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 parts certificate 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 with the exception of the Touareg (rear wheels may also be fitted with snow chains).

Series 80 tyres

Tyres of the 80 series (e.g. 145/80 R 13 74 S) will replace the 82 series (e.g. 145/82 R 13 74 S). Lawmakers have stipulated that 82 series tyres may be replaced by 80 series tyres without having been entered in the vehicle documents. The condition for this is that the 80 series tyres have the same width, be of the same type cross-ply or radial belted and have the same or higher load index. If only 80 series tyres are entered in the vehicle documents, 82 series tyres may only be used if an entry has been made in the vehicle documents.

Documents and codes/designations


New vehicle registration documents since 01.10.2005

The implementation of EU Directive 1999/37/EU "Registration Documents for Vehicles" in national law and legal data protection requirements have necessitated the introduction of new, falsifi cation-proof registration documents. Since 01.10.2005, only the new documents are issued by the registration authorities in the event of new registrations, change of ownership, registration of technical modifications and all other matters. The new registration documents are comprised of: Registration certificate part I, which replaces the certificate of registration and Registration certificate part II, which replaces the vehicle log book.

Like the old certificate of registration, the registration certificate part I (certificate of registration) must be kept in the vehicle and submitted to responsible persons on request. It is not necessary for the wheel and tyre combination specified in the registration certificate part I (certificate of registration) to be fitted. All combinations approved according to the general vehicle type approval or EU type approval page 7 may be fitted.

Manufactures of motorized vehicles must apply for an EU oper ating permit for all class M1 passenger carrying vehicles. A certificate is produced on the basis of this operating permit - the COC (Certificate of Conformity). This document certifies that the vehicle complies with the EU op erating permit (EU type approval) and can be registered in every EU country without an individual type approval. The document will be issued for all vehicles that comply with the EU operating permit. These vehicles have an EU type plate (black sticker) in the area of the driver's door, or in the case of older vehicles, in the engine compartment. The COC document has the same value as the registration docu ment and therefore the original should not be carried on the vehicle.

Official type designations

Passenger cars licensed for road use in Germany need a general type approval for the issue of a vehicle title document. The type approval is issued by the Federal Ministry for Transport in Flensburg following type inspection. This procedure was per mitted until 31.12.1997 and, in exceptional cases, even after that. Other member states of the European Union (EU) have different procedures for issuing a document similar to the German title document. Until 31.12.1997, each member state was entitled to issue its own national type approvals according to its own proce dures. Since 1.1.1998, all passenger cars licensed within the European Union must have a type approval corresponding to EU guidelines page 7 . Vehicles licensed for road use with single-vehicle ap proval according to 21 StVZO in Germany are excepted. This means the same guidelines apply to all vehicle manufactur ers. This makes it easier to trade across national borders within the EU. Official type approval, sales or trade designation In the following table, all VW vehicles which already have EU type approval are listed in the column "EU type". All VW vehicles which were granted type approval according to the procedure valid up to 31.12.97 are listed in the column "Gen eral type" If entries appear in both columns "General type" and "EU type", there are vehicles of this model which are approved by both StVZO and EU guidelines. In this case, the first step is to deter mine exactly what type of vehicle you have.

Undulations

Undulations are slight wavy irregularities in the tyre sidewall. They run from the bead towards the shoulder of the tyre. These parts appear in the figure page 41 . The cause is the accumulation of material at the joints of the tyre components. Undulations have no effect on: Safety, Service life, Handling or Other characteristics of the tyre. Undulations are visible to varying extents. It is not necessary to inspect the tyre or remove it from the rim.

Of course, tyre damage occurs only if the tyre is in contact with the chemical for a relatively long time. If a few drops of fuel land on a tyre during a fill up, this is of no concern. Complete wheels Tyres mounted on wheels can be stored flat, stacked one upon the other. In this case, it is important to ensure that the tyres are clean and dry. The inflation pressure should be increased to a maximum of 3 bar. Tyres without wheels Tyres without wheels are best stored standing vertically. If tyres lies stacked for longer periods of time, they will be pressed to gether with a substantial force. The tyres will then be more difficult to fit, as they do not sit on the bead seats. If tyres are stored standing vertically, it is recommended to turn them every 14 days to avoid flat spots.

Tyre ageing

Tyres age as a result of physical and chemical processes, which can impair the function of the tyres. Tyres which are stored for longer periods of time harden and become brittle faster than tyres which are constantly in use on a vehicle. Older tyres may develop hairline cracks as a result of ageing. When tyres are in regular use, the constant flexing activates softeners in the rubber, pre venting hardening and the development of cracks. It is therefore important to take into account not only the tread depth, but also the age of spare tyres, stored tyres and tyres which are not permanently in use. The tyre age can be determined from

Some tyre manufacturers have for some time replaced the des ignation 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.

Tyre wear/ mileage for passenger car tyres


General

5.1

A tyre has to meet numerous requirements page 19 . Different types of tyres meet these requirements to varying de grees. Depending on the conditions in which the tyres are used and on the type of vehicle, some requirements will be more important than others. H, V, and Z tyres for high-performance vehicles are expected to have good grip on wet and flooded roads. On the other hand, they cannot have such a long mileage expectancy as, for example, tyres with S or T ratings.

5.2

Requirements to be met by tyres

The pie chart illustrates to what extent the tyre meets the various requirements. It shows how the proportions of the requirements A to H can be distributed according to the construction of the tyre and the rubber mixture used. Improving one of the characteristics will have a negative effect on one of the others. Example: An improvement in wet braking properties -A- leads to a reduction in driving comfort -B-, rolling resistance -G- and life expectancy -F-. The life expectancy of passenger vehicle tyres does not just de pend on the rubber composition and design of a tyre. The condi tions for use, the vehicle-specific circumstances and driving style have a heavy influence on the service life of a tyre. Modern vehicles with the appropriate engine allow a gentle, eco nomical driving style but also an extremely sporty driving style. A tyre life of 5,000 to 40,000 km or more is possible. Note

The vehicle's weight causes the tyre's contact patch to flatten. This causes the tread and the entire bracing plies of the tyre con tinually to be deformed when a tyre is rolling. Low tyre pressure causes greater deformation, resulting in greater warming and in creased rolling resistance. This then leads to increased wear and poses a greater safety risk.

Diagrams 1 and 2 show that the tread on a new tyre wears faster than that on a heavily used tyre. Because the wear curve is not linear, it is not possible to estimate the tyre's expected life on the basis of wear after a distance of 5,000 km. On front-wheel drive vehicles, the front tyres have to transmit not only the steering and driving forces, but also the greater part of the lateral and braking forces. This causes the front tyres on frontwheel drive vehicles to wear much faster than the rear tyres. Even tyre wear can be achieved by rotating (interchanging) the front and rear tyres on a regular basis. Rotating wheels page 66 .

Demands placed on tyres are becoming ever greater. This is caused by the following factors: greater vehicle weight high speeds high level of vehicle safety

A greater load on the tyre will, of course, lead to an increase in tyre wear. Driving style has a critical effect on tyre wear. Therefore, worn tyres with an evenly worn tread cannot be replaced under war ranty.

Wheels and Tyres Guide - Archive - Edition 06.2010 Increased one-sided wear One-sided wear, usually in conjunction with signs of scuffing on the ribs of the tread and in the fine grooves, always occurs when the tyres have been allowed to roll with an extreme tyre slip angle, causing them to rub on the road surface. Driving fast on a stretch of road with lots of curves will cause in creased wear, in particular on the outer shoulder. A rounded outer shoulder on the tyre in conjunction with a partic ularly high degree of wear on the outer tread blocks indicates fast cornering. This wear pattern is influenced by driving style. To optimise handling, the suspension is set to certain toe and camber values. Increased one-sided wear can be expected if tyres are allowed to roll under conditions which differ from those specified. One-sided wear is especially likely if the toe and camber have not been set correctly. Moreover, there is a greater risk of diagonal washout. Toe-out or negative toe-in Distance between the front edges of the wheels -A- is greater than distance between the rear edges of the wheels -B- (-C- = direction of travel).

Different wear on the front and rear axle in unavoidable de pending on the driving style. This condition can be compen sated for by swapping over the wheels from front to rear. The ideal opportunity to do this, for example, is during the seasonal change between winter and summer tyres. This change also has a positive side effect in that the tyres can wear down equally, meaning that a completely new set of tyres can be fitted. This prevents the use of tyres with different tread depths on both axles, which can have negative effects on road hold ing. Saw tooth formation is a normal wear pattern, particularly where the driving style is very careful page 29 . This can lead to an increase in rolling noise, which generally becomes better as the tread depth becomes less. In the event of light saw tooth formation or if saw tooth formation is just starting, exchange of the wheels between axles is normally sufficient. In cases where saw tooth formation is very pronounced, the wheels have to be changed in accordance with page 29 so their direction of rotation is reversed.

Wear in middle of tyre

This wear pattern is found on the driven wheels of high-perform ance vehicles that are frequently driven long distances at high speeds. At high speeds, centrifugal forces cause the tyre diameter to in crease more in the middle of the tread than it does at the shoulder. This causes drive forces to be transferred to the road surface from

Diagonal washout

Diagonal washout runs at an angle of approx. 45 to the circum ference. It usually occurs at one point only, but can also occur at several points around the circumference of the tyre. Washout occurs almost exclusively on the tyres on the non-driven wheels, in particular at the rear left. Washout occurs very often on some models, while it poses no problem at all on other models. The effect is intensified by high toe-in values. Toe-in values in the region of the lower tolerance limits of the specified alignment val ues improve the wear pattern. The most pronounced diagonal washout is often found in the area where the tyre components are joined. Wheels with positive toe-in roll with a slip angle even straight ahead. This leads to a diagonal strain in the contact patch or foot print on the tyre/road surface. This wear pattern is intensified when tyre pressure is too low. To avoid such tread wear patterns, the toe-in values of the two rear wheels should be identical and the specified tyre pressures ob served. If washout is detected at an early stage, the wheels should be fitted on the drive axle. Deeper washout cannot be repaired. Faulty adjustment

If a customer complains of diagonal wear spots, the toe adjust ment must be examined. If toe-in is correct, the cause of the diagonal washout is very probably the tyre itself. Tyres with diagonal washout caused by incorrect wheel alignment are not covered by warranty.

Tyre noise
General notes on tyre noise

Tyre noise that can be heard by the human ear is caused by vi brations which are transmitted by the air from the source of the sound to our ears. Of interest here are the noises caused by certain characteristics and effects of the rolling tyre (source of the sound). The cause of the noise is largely dependent on the combination of the road surface and tyres. The structure and material of the road surface will greatly affect tyre noise. For example, the noise level on a wet road is much higher than on a dry road. The pattern of the tyre tread also has a significant influence on tyre noise. Tyres with transverse grooves at an angle of 90 gen erate more noise than tyres with grooves running diagonally. Small tread blocks are unstable. Their highly pronounced defor mation agitates the air as the tyres roll. This creates vibrations in the air which cause tyre noise. Wider tyres are louder. They need more tread channels to dis place water. When the tyres roll, these tread channels displace the air, also creating vibrations in the air. Further effects that also influence tyre noise: Tyre vibration is the principal cause of tyre noise. It is caused by the columns of air in the tread channels being agitated.

The roughness, structure and material of the road surface influ ence tyre noise. The widths of the tyre and the rim, among other things, influence tyre noise. Due to their larger contact area, wider tyres will cause more tyre noise than narrow tyres, as more air has to be displaced and more mass is agitated to create vibrations. A wider wheel rim will also cause a tyre to have a wider contact patch. The effect on tyre noise is thus very similar to that of a wider tyre. Moreover, the damping characteristics of the tyre may also be adversely affected by the wider wheel rim. Tyre noise of a vehicle with front-wheel drive is more perceptible in the rear because wind and the engine noise are not as loud there.

Saw-tooth wear

ht rig py Co t.

Saw-tooth wear is a stepped wear pattern on the individual tread blocks page 30 that can cause increased tyre noise. The saw tooth is caused by uneven deformation of the tread blocks in the tyre's contact patch. Saw-tooth wear is more pronounced on nondriven wheels than on driven wheels.

In the event of saw-tooth wear, the direction of rotation of the tyre must be reversed. If saw-tooth wear is especially pronounced and tyre noise has increased, interchange the tyres diagonally. This will reduce the saw-tooth effect. On front-wheel-drive vehicles, this effect is intensified by the greater wear on the front axle. Tyre noise will be somewhat louder immediately after the tyres have been interchanged but will return to a normal level after about 500...1,000 km have been driven. In the event of increased saw-tooth wear on the rear tyres in particular on front-wheel drive vehicles interchange the front and rear tyres. In the event of increased saw-tooth wear on the outer edges of the tyres on one axle, turn both tyres around on their rims.

Flat spots (from locking wheels)

Flat spots result from hard braking which causes the wheels to lock so that the rubber is worn off at the contact patch between the tread and the road surface. As the tyres slide over the road surface, friction generates heat, which reduces the tread material's resistance to wear. Not even the most wear-resistant tread compound can prevent the flat spots caused by extreme braking. Even ABS-controlled brake systems cannot prevent brief locking of the wheels, and thus, minor flat spots. The degree of such wear depends largely on the vehicle speed, the road surface and the load placed on the wheel. The following examples should make this clear.

Vibration control system -VAS 6230-

Using the vibration control system -VAS 6230- you can perform more functions than just stationary balancing. A special feature of this system is the testing of the radial force of the wheel and tyre while rolling. A roller presses against the wheel with a force of about 635 kg. This simulates the vertical tyre force against the road surface during travel. Radial and lateral runout in the wheel and tyre and differences in the stiffness of the tyre cause the vertical force of the wheel to vary. The -VAS 6230- detects and stores the position of the maximum measured radial force in the tyre. Then the position of the smallest distance between the wheel flange and the centre of the rim is measured.

Finish balancer

Before working with a finish balancer , the mechanic needs to

have been instructed by the manufacturer of the balancer.

To balance the wheels, set the wheels of the driven axle on

the sensor platforms (only the front wheels of a front-wheel drive vehicle, all four wheels of a four-wheel drive vehicle).

If you determine a residual imbalance greater than 20 grams when balancing the wheels, you should rotate the mounting po sition of the wheel on the hub. Mark the point at which the imbalance is indicated. Unbolt the wheel and rotate its position on the hub so that the marking points downwards. Note

The hub must not rotate during this procedure.


First hand-tighten the lowest wheel bolt to about 30 Nm. Then tighten the remaining wheel bolts diagonally to about 30 Nm. This process ensures that the wheel is centred prop erly on the hub. Check whether the imbalance is less than 20 grams using the finish balancer.

What is a flat spot?

Flat spots caused by storage or handling cannot be balanced and they can reoccur at any time due to various circumstances. Flat spots caused by storage or handling can be eliminated without complicated special tools. This does not apply to flat spots caused by hard braking page 30 . Note

Flat spots caused by hard braking cannot be repaired. Such tyres must be renewed.
Reasons for flat spots caused by storage or handling: The vehicle has been left standing in one place without being moved for several weeks. The tyre inflation pressure is too low. The vehicle was placed in a paint shop drying booth after being painted. The vehicle was parked with warm tyres in a cool garage or similar for a long period of time. In this case, a flat spot from standing may even occur overnight. Eliminating flat spots caused by storage or handling Flat spots caused by storage or handling cannot be eliminated from the tyre using workshop equipment. Flat spots caused by storage or handling can be removed only by running the tyres warm. The method described below is not recommended in cold and wintry weather.

Vehicle pulls to one side


General

Perform a road test to determine whether a vehicle is pulling to one side and if so, which side. If the vehicle pulls to one side page 42 . When wheel alignment is checked, include the wheel alignment test results in tyre complaint report. Manufacturer's tolerances can lead to a slight amount of taper (asymmetry) in the tyre carcass. The rolling tyre then develops a lateral force which acts directly on the wheel suspension, leading to self-steering of the vehicle. Strategic rotation of the wheels can compensate for this self-steering behaviour.

8.2

Conicity

Conicity is caused by a slight offset of the tread and/or the belt (amounting to a few tenths of a millimetre) relative to the geo metric centre of the tyre. Conicity is not visible and cannot be measured with equipment available in the workshop.

Wheels and Tyres Guide - Archive - Edition 06.2010 Exaggerated for clarity. 1 - Offset of belt and tread F1 - Unequal vertical wheel forces F2 - Unequal vertical wheel forces Fk - Conicity force The offset produces differences in stiffness at the Volkswa inner and outer y shoulders of the tyre, resulting in differing vertical wheel forces. db se ri Consequently the belt or tread will not be tpressed onto the road ho au surface with the same force (F1, F2). A conical, or tapered, shape s develops. The resulting force (conicity s force Fk) can, depending on the speed, become so great that the vehicle then pulls to one side. If the force Fk on one wheel of the axle is, for example, 50 Newton, and also 50 Newton on the other wheel, and both forces are ex erted in the same direction, the forces are cumulated. Reversing a tyre on the rim can compensate for the lateral pull because the forces then act in opposite directions. Because the direction in which the force of taper is exerted is not visible, only road tests and strategic rotation of wheels and tyres can establish which tyres cause the pulling. The tyre consists of numerous components and materials which are vulcanised to form a single part at the end of a complicated manufacturing process. The result is differing production toleran ces which make themselves noticeable through more or less strong lateral forces (conicity forces). These forces can also occur in new tyres. Pulling to one side on front axle Pulling to one side can be caused by the running gear. However, experience shows that in 90% of all complaints, the tyres cause pulling to one side. On a straight, level road surface, the vehicle wants to pull to one side at a constant speed or with moderate acceleration. Force can be felt at the steering wheel. Pulling to one side during fast acceleration Pulling to one side during fast acceleration is, in part, due to the basic design of vehicles with front wheel drive. Different friction levels at the left and right wheels or possible irregularities in the road surface (potholes) and consequently varying road adhesion have a substantial influence on the handling characteristics. This does not constitute a complaint which is covered by the warranty.

Tyre damage
General information

As tyre damage can have serious consequences, you and the driver should regularly check the tyres to identify any problems at an early stage. Damaged tyres cannot withstand driving conditions such as high speed, long distances, sporty driving, and so on. Damage can be caused in a number of ways: Driving with insufficient tyre pressure Assembly error when tyres were fitted on rims Damage by embedding objects Ageing Improper storage

Driving over hard, pointed objects like nails, screws and the like can pierce the tyre. This always leads to tyre damage. Damage due to embedded foreign body Often, the object -marking- is so securely embedded in the tyre that it will not free itself even at higher speeds. Consequently, it can act as a plug and seal the tyre relatively well. This results in a gradual loss of pressure, which the driver will not notice imme diately, but which can lead to sudden and complete tyre failure.

A sporty driving style also requires correct or even slightly increased tyre pressure. Slow loss of tyre pressure The slow loss of tyre pressure is especially problematic because even experienced drivers often do not notice it. Insufficient tyre pressure and the related increase in flexing (in ternal friction) cause the tyre material to heat up considerably and may lead to the separation of the various components and rubber compounds. In the end, the tyre is usually destroyed completely page 50 . The cause for the slow pressure loss cannot always be deter mined because the tyre is severely damaged and components of the tyre are missing.

Tyre damage due to insufficient tyre pressure

The most common causes for tyre failure are minor external dam age, a defective valve or a leaking rim due to corrosion or dam age.

Tyres with wide, circumferential furrows near the bead Wide, circumferential furrows near the bead -arrows- indicate that the tyre was driven with insufficient pressure. Driving a vehicle with insufficient tyre pressure or ignoring or not recognising tyre damage can have serious consequences. The tyre can no longer withstand the forces which develop when the vehicle is driven. The defects mentioned above severely restrict the function of the tyre. The rubber compounds separate, which results in the partial separation of tyre components or even its complete destruction.

Tyres with run-flat properties


es, in part or in w l purpos hole ercia , is n mm ot p co erm or te itte va ri d p

General

Tyres with run-flat properties have reinforced side walls when comparing them with normal tyres. This reduces the slippage of the side walls and prevents the tyre flanks sticking when the tyres are run deflated. This ensures the vehicle remains controllable and the vehicle has almost normal driving characteristics. The al leviates the necessity to fit the spare wheel in dangerous condi tions e.g hard shoulder of a motorway or in bad weather conditions. A deflated tyre can be driven further to the next workshop (approx. 50 km (approx. 30 miles)) at a suitable speed (max. 80 km/h (max. 50 mph)) and in suitable driving style for the conditions, see Owner's wallet . After checking the respective wheel, the responsibility lies with the driver to decide if it is safe to drive further with the deflated tyre. -I- Tyres with normal air pressure 2 - Normal tyres -II- Deflated tyre 1 - Tyres with run-flat properties (reinforced side walls -red-)

Care and maintenance of alloy wheel rims

Regular care is required to maintain the decorative appearance of alloy wheels over a long period of time. In particular road salt and dust from brake abrasion must be thor oughly washed off every 2 weeks; otherwise the finish of the alloy wheel will suffer.

Damage to finish If the finish is damaged, for example by stones, the damage must be repaired as quickly as possible page 63 . Removing adhesive residue from glued balance weights on alloy rims Strong solvents and acids attack the finish on alloy wheels and the surface of the wheel becomes matt and milky. Therefore, these substances should not be used. To remove adhesive residue on alloy wheels, use alloy cleans ers or a petrol-based cleanser. Do not exceed the soaking time of the cleaning agent. After cleaning or removing adhesive residue from wheels, rinse them with water.

The valve

Valve body Valve core Valve cap

1. Valve body The rubber valve for tubeless tyres is designed to create an airtight seal in the hole in the rim. The elastic material of the rubber body presses tightly into the hole in the rim. In the case of valves with a threaded metal base, a rubber seal is used to seal the rim. The lateral faces of the rim hole are sealing surfaces. They must therefore be free of rust and dirt and must not be damaged. 2. Valve core The valve core has the most important job in the valve. It creates a seal and enables the regulation of the air pressure. The small flat seal on the valve core can function correctly only if it is free of n A system foreign particles, dirt and moisture. Theen AG. VolkswageairG does wag compressed not must be free of water and oil! y Volks gu 3. Valve cap A valve cap must onto the valve. It prevents dirt from getting into the valve. Dirt which may be in the valve would reach the seal of the valve plate when the tyre is inflated and cause a leak. The valve must be renewed every time a new tyre is fitted. If the vehicle is driven without caps on the valves, there is the danger that dirt may get into the valve. This leads to a gradual loss of air, which in turn can lead to the destruction of the tyre.

Fitting and removing wheels


Changing wheels

Vehicles with front-wheel drive exhibit more tread wear on the front wheels due to the greater forces they have to transmit. In order for all 4 wheels on the vehicle to have the same service life, we recommend rotating the front and rear wheels and tyres. Ensure that uni-directional tyres are not reversed. The longer the tyre runs at one position, the more it wears at cer tain points. Therefore it is recommended to rotate the wheels at short intervals, for example every 5,000 km. Diagonal rotation is possible only with non-directional tyres. This method of wheel rotation is especially advantageous in the case of saw-tooth wear page 29 . If saw-tooth wear has already progressed and the tread is worn to more than 50%, only slight improvements would be achieved and rotation is not recommended. The elasticity of the tread blocks declines and the saw-tooth wear does not progress.

Volkswagen vehicles are built according to the latest findings in safety engineering. To keep it that way, we recommend the use of only genuine Volkswagen spare parts. You can recognise this by the VW Audi logo and by the part number. It has been estab lished that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable. Despite constant appraisal of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot, of course, assume any liability if these products are installed. WARNING

The products from Volkswagen genuine parts and Votex gen uine accessories may differ in fitting requirements, torque specifications and so on. Always follow the respective fitting and operating instructions.
The wheel and tyre combinations or changes listed in the vehicle tables refer exclusively to Volkswagen Genuine wheels. Approval of wheel and tyre combinations or a change to wheels from the accessories trade is not possible with the parts certificate attach ed here.

You can recognise this by the VW Audi logo and by the part number. It has been estab lished that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable. Despite constant appraisal of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot, of course, assume any liability if these products are installed. WARNING

The products from Volkswagen genuine parts and Votex gen uine accessories may differ in fitting requirements, torque specifications and so on.

Volkswagen vehicles are built according to the latest findings in safety engineering. To keep it that way, we recommend the use of genuine Volkswagen spare parts only. You can recognise this by the VW Audi logo and by the part number. It has been estab lished that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable. Despite constant appraisal of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot, of course, assume any liability if these products are installed. WARNING

You can recognise this by the VW Audi logo and by the part number. It has been estab lished that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable. Despite constant appraisal of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot, of course, assume any liability if these products are installed. WARNING

General

Bora model year 1999 to model year 2005

Volkswagen vehicles are built according to the latest findings in safety engineering. To keep it that way, we recommend the use of genuine Volkswagen spare parts only. You can recognise this by the VW Audi logo and by the part number. It has been estab lished that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable. Despite constant appraisal of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot, of course, assume any liability if these products are installed. AG. Volkswagen

General

Sharan from model year 1996

Volkswagen vehicles are built according to the latest findings in safety engineering. To keep it that way, we recommend the use of only genuine Volkswagen spare parts. You can recognise this by the VW Audi logo and by the part number. It has been estab lished that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable. Despite constant appraisal of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot, of course, assume any liability if these products are installed. WARNING

The products from Volkswagen genuine parts and Votex gen uine accessories may differ in fitting requirements, torque specifications and so on. Always follow the respective fitting and operating instructions.
The wheel and tyre combinations or changes listed in the vehicle tables refer exclusively to Volkswagen Genuine wheels. Approval of wheel and tyre combinations or a change to wheels from the accessories trade is not possible with the parts certificate attach ed here. WARNING

Therefore, always observe the torque settings for the wheel bolts as well as the respective fitting and operating instructions.

Touareg R50 from model year 2008

Volkswagen vehicles are built according to the latest findings in safety engineering. To keep it that way, we recommend the use of only genuine Volkswagen spare parts. You can recognise this by the VW Audi logo and by the part number. It has been estab lished that these parts are reliable, safe and suitable. Despite constant appraisal of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even when in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot, of course, assume any liability if these products are installed. WARNING

The products from Volkswagen genuine parts and Votex gen uine accessories may differ in fitting requirements, torque specifications and so on. Always follow the respective fitting and operating instructions.
The wheel and tyre combinations or changes listed in the vehicle tables refer exclusively to Volkswagen Genuine wheels. Approval of wheel and tyre combinations or a change to wheels from the accessories trade is not possible with the parts certificate attach ed here. WARNING

The fitting instructions and torque specifications for wheels from Votex genuine accessories may differ from those inten ded for wheels from Volkswagen genuine parts. lksw

Recommended summer tyres

Notes regarding the recommended makes of summer tyre Tyres are one of the most important elements in motor vehicle construction and have a major influence olksroadnsafety. There n AG. V on wage AG do es n w ge fore, they must fulfil numerous a ot g olks conditions which are specified V u bythe DIN (German industrial standar for tyre manufacturers d an e in is ards) and the directives of the German rubber industry e. V. tee o or th ra au (W.d.K.). In addition, comprehensive testing is carried out at c ss Volkswagen before tyres are approved for initial fitting on our vehicles. The following lists all tyre makes and tread patterns that are fitted to VW vehicles ex-factory, correct at the time of publica tion. These tyre makes/tread patterns meet the aforementioned demands. We therefore recommend the tyres/tread types lis ted in this guide are chosen as replacements. Observe special requirements for tyres with run-flat properties page 54 .
