General notes on wheels and tyres


(passenger cars)

In this chapter you will learn more about tyres and wheels/rims.
Tyres are high-tech products that are especially adapted to the
requirements 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.

Vehicle safety is the top priority. With regard to the various oper
ating conditions such as
differing speed ranges,

winter and summer use and

wet and dry roads,

AG.

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 maximum service life

Note

Tyre damage and related problems can have various causes. It


is therefore very important that one determines whether the prob
lem has been caused by the tyre or by other components.
Normal wear and tear on a tyre will alter its characteristics. Rolling
noises or rough running can be the result of such wear. These are
simply the symptoms of normal wear and tear and do not consti
tute damage in the sense of the tyre being defective. You can take
measures to eliminate the symptoms at least to some degree.
However, in some cases it may not be possible to eliminate tyre
noise completely.

Legislative conditions for converting


wheel and tyre combinations

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

For the conversions recommended by VOLKSWAGEN AG


(see appendix for certificate statements) there are no general
operating 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

Manufactures of motorized vehicles must apply for an EU oper

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.

Vehicles with national type approval
If the vehicle has a national type approval, the maximum speed
for the vehicle is calculated as follows:
Formula for vehicles with vmax up to 150 km/h
vmax = 1.03 x v + 3.5 km/h page 11
Example: Specified maximum speed v = 145 km/h
vmax = 1.03 x 145 km/h + 3.5 km/h = 152.85

vmax = 1.01 x v + 6.5 km/h page 11


Example: Specified maximum speed v = 163 km/h
In this example, a tyre with the speed rating S or higher must be
used.
Vehicles with EC type approval
If your vehicle has an EC type approval, the maximum speed for
all vehicles is calculated as follows:
vmax = 1.05 x v page 11
Example: Specified maximum speed v = 172 km/h
vmax = 1.05 x 172 km/h 180.60 km/h
In this example, a tyre with the speed rating T or higher must be
used.
It is permitted to use tyres with a higher speed rating. The same

Undulations

Radial depressions are slight concavities 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.

Wheels and Tyres Guide - Standard - Edition 06.2010
What causes undulations?
Modern steel belted tyres are constructed with single-ply side
walls to save weight.
The sidewall components consist of long strips before they are
joined together to form a tyre. They must overlap at the joints.
Consequently, slight irregularities or waves are created in the
area of the overlapping parts. The overlaps are easier to see from
the outside due to the single-ply construction.

Tyre storage

The conditions have to be:

WARNING

Stored tyres must not come in contact with fuel, oil, grease or
chemicals under any circumstances. Otherwise, the material
in the tyre will be damaged by chemical reactions which are
not always visible.

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
are stacked for a long period of time, they will be pressed together
quite considerably. The tyres will then be more difficult to fit, as
they do not sit on the rim shoulders. If tyres are stored standing
vertically, it is recommended to turn them every 14 days to avoid
flat spots.

4.6

Tyre ageing

Even visually flawless, new or barely used tyres with sufficient


tread depth, which are older than six years, may show signif
icant reduction of wet properties and winter suitability due only
to 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, preventing hardening and the devel
opment 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 the DOT designation,
which includes, among other things, the production date of the
tyre.

Recommendation
It is recommended not to use summer and winter tyres which
are older than 6 years anymore. The original properties dete
riorate due to the aging process. Winter tyres especially lose
their adhesion properties.
When new tyres are fitted, the spare tyre may also be used if
it is in flawless condition and is not more than 6 years old. The
age of the tyre has a great influence on the high-speed capa
bility of the tyre. It is possible to combine a spare tyre which is
several years old with new tyres; however, this can have an
adverse influence on car handling.
Tyres are constantly being further developed, which can lead,
for example, to slight changes in the rubber compound, even
if the tyres are of the same make, size and tread pattern.
All VW vehicles are factory-fitted with four identical tyres and
wheels.
Front-wheel drive vehicles:
For reasons of safety, tyres of the same make and with the
same tread pattern should be mounted on one axle.
Four-wheel drive vehicles:

Wheels and Tyres Guide - Standard - Edition 06.2010
Vehicles with four-wheel drive must always be equipped with
four wheels with tyres of the same size, construction, tread
pattern and make.
Renewing tyres
Tyres must always be renewed when:

the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6 mm is reached,

there is visible mechanical damage

4.7

Tyre sizes for vehicles with four-wheel


drive

The following points must be observed for vehicles with fourwheel drive:
Only tyres of the same make, design and tread pattern may
be fitted to the front and rear axles.
Different tyre rolling circumferences produce stress in the
drive train which increases tyre wear and may damage the
drive train.
These restrictions also apply to front and rear tyres with greatly
differing stages of wear. In such cases, tyres with the most
tread must be fitted on the front axle.

As a basic rule:

All tyre sizes listed in the vehicle documents can also be used as
winter tyres.
The handling characteristics may be affected by the use of winter
tyres and the possible change in the dimensions of the wheel and
tyre. Therefore, when using winter tyres, you must adapt your
speed to the changed handling characteristics and to the road
conditions.
To achieve the best possible handling, winter tyres must be fitted
on all wheels.

Wheels and wheel bolts are matched.

Travelling at over 210 km/h is possible with V winter tyres only if

At a speed of 240 km/h, this tyre can carry a load of only 560 kg,
i.e. the axle load may not exceed 1120 kg.
The Passat Variant V6 4Motion has a permitted axle load of
1150 kg and an achievable maximum speed of 232 km/h. This

Reinforced and Extra Load (XL) tyres

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.

Snow chains

Snow chains must be fitted to driven wheels only.


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).
It is not possible to use snow chains with all wheel and tyre com
binations. Notes on this can be found in the vehicle tables of the
certificate statement.
If no particular type of snow chain is specified, then small-link
chains may be used. These, including the chain fastener, may not
protrude more than 15 mm beyond the wheel's tread and the inner
wall.
On some models, only special, small-link chains are possible with
certain wheel and tyre combinations. Notes on this can be found
in the vehicle tables of the certificate statement.

The maximum speed permitted by law when driving with snow
chains is 50 km/h.
Snow chains should be removed when there is no snow on the
road. There is no point in having them on the wheels, as they
adversely affect the vehicle's handling. It causes unnecessary
stress on the tyres and above average wear on the chains.

5.1

General

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. However, mileage per
formance cannot be as good for tyres of this type as it is, for
example, in the case of S or T tyres.

The life expectancy of passenger vehicle tyres does not just de


pend on the rubber composition and design of a tyre. The condi

have a heavy influence on the service life of a tyre.

Wear behaviour of high-speed tyres

These tyres are designed for very high speeds. When developing
these tyres, good grip in wet conditions is the main objective. The
tread compositions do not have the same wear resistance as T
and H tyres for lower speeds.
The life expectancy of high-speed tyres is therefore considerably
lower in comparable conditions of use.

Tyre maintenance

Tyre pressure
The weight of the vehicle causes the tyre contact area to flatten.
This in turn causes the running surface and the entire ply of the
tyre to be continually deformed when a tyre is rolling. If the tyre is
underinflated, the amount of flex is higher, resulting in a greater
increase in heat and increased rolling resistance. This then leads
to increased wear and poses a greater safety risk.

If tyre pressure is too high, this will result in poor rolling comfort
and increased wear across the centre of the tread. We recom
mend always to maintain the tyre pressure specified by the man
ufacturer.

Note
The diagrams shown are not applicable in all cases.
They are intended merely to give an idea of the wear rates of

tyres on the front and rear axles and with front-wheel drive and
four-wheel drive.

The tyre service life may differ significantly, depending on op

This is caused by the following factors:


greater vehicle weight
high speeds

Greater loads on the tyre will, of course, lead to an increase in


tyre wear.

On front-wheel drive vehicles, the front tyres not only have to


transmit the steering and driving forces, but also the greater part
of the lateral and braking forces. This causes the front tyres on
front-wheel 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

Wheels and Tyres Guide - Standard - 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 specified toe-in and
camber values. Increased one-sided wear can be expected if
tyres are allowed to roll under conditions which differ from those
specified.

Distance between front of wheels -A- is less than distance be

To prevent one-sided wear, care must be taken to ensure that the
wheel is set within the tolerance specified by the vehicle manu
facturer. The most frequent deviation of the wheel alignment is
caused by external influences, for example hard contact with the
kerbstone when parking.
By measuring the axle geometry, you can check whether the
wheel alignment is within the specified tolerances or whether it
has to be corrected.
Running gear modifications
Using suspension-lowering kits and/or alloy wheels that have
not been recommended by VW may result in altered wheel posi
tions which deviate from the specified alignment.
Even if the axle geometry is correct with the vehicle stationary
during wheel alignment, the changed vehicle height and wheel
positions can cause the wheel suspension to move differently
during operation.
Uneven wear is then unavoidable.
Unsuitable use of self-levelling adjustments on pneumatic sus
pension system
The use of the offroad level is recommended only for driving off
road. Permanent use of the offroad level during normal road
operation can lead to increased tyre wear as the height of the
wheel position is different to the road level.

alignment is correct on one hand and on the other hand to make
sure the vehicle is used only for its intended purpose:

Diagonal washout

Diagonal washout on a tyre


Diagonal washout runs at an angle of approx. 45 to the direction
of rotation.
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.

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 you detect washout, you should fit the wheels on the driven axle,
assuming the washout is identified at an early stage. 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 incorrectly set axle ge
ometry at the wheels 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 while the tyres are rolling (source of the sound).
The cause of the noise is largely dependent on the combination
of the road surface and tyres.

Wider tyres are louder. They need more tread channels to dis
place water. When they are rolling, these tread channels displace
the air, also creating air vibrations.
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.
Air pumping is the compression and expansion of the air
caused by the deformation of the tread blocks as the tyre con
tact patch moves along the road surface.

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.

Small tread blocks are unstable. Their highly pronounced defor

The pattern of the tyre stread also has a significant influence on


tyre noise. Tyres with transverse grooves at an angle of 90 gen

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.
On vehicles with a front-mounted engine, tyre noise is more per
ceptible at the rear of the vehicle, as wind and engine noises are
not as loud there.

6.2

Saw-tooth wear

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.

Pronounced saw-tooth wear occurs under the following condi
tions:
toe values are too high

tyre pressures are incorrect


tread is coarse and open

Prote

by

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 5001,000 km have been driven.
Directional tyres
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. The left-hand wheel must then be fitted on the right side of
the vehicle and the right-hand wheel on the left side.

6.3

Flat spots (from locking wheels)

Flat spots can result from an extreme brake application 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 also reduces the wear resistance of the tread material.
Not even a highly wear-resistant tread compound can prevent the
flat spots caused by violent 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.

30

Rep. gr.44 - Wheels, tyres, vehicle geometry

AG.

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.

Rough running caused by wheels/


tyres

7.1

Causes of rough running

Rough running can have a number of different causes. It can also


be caused by tyre wear. Tyre wear caused by driving is not always
evenly spread across the entire running surface of the tyre. This
causes slight imbalances which affect the smooth running of a
wheel which was previously exactly balanced.
Minor imbalances will not be felt at the steering wheel, but that
does not mean that they are not there. They increase wear on the
tyre and thus reduce the tyre service life.
Recommendation
To ensure

optimal safety,

smoothest possible running and

even wear

throughout a tyre's service life, we recommend having the wheels


and tyres balanced at least twice during the tyre's service life.

7.2

Balancing wheels

Before you start balancing the wheels, the following requirements


must be met.

The tyre pressure must be OK.

The tyre tread must not show one-sided wear and should be
at least 4 mm deep.

If a customer brings a vehicle to the workshop complaining about


vibration, a road test is essential prior to balancing the wheels.
This will give you information about the nature of the rough
running.
You will be able to determine in which speed range the rough
running occurs.
Raise the vehicle on a lifting platform immediately after the
road test.
Mark the positions of the tyres on the vehicle.

Procedure for balancing wheels and tyres


Rotate wheel and tyre on wheel balancer.
Check that the indicator lines on the sidewall of the tyre near
the wheel rim flange run evenly.
Check that the body of the tyre runs evenly while the wheel
and tyre are rotating.
Note

Note
More than 60 grams of weight per tyre should not be used.
If more weight is required, you may be able to achieve smooth

er running by "matching" the tyre and rim. Matching tyres


page 38 .

The wheel balancer display should indicate 0 gram.


As an alternative to match mounting, you could use the vibra

tion control system -VAS 6230- page 35 .

Bolt the wheel to the vehicle.


First hand-tighten the lowest wheel bolt to about 30 Nm.
Then tighten the remaining wheel bolts diagonally to about
30 Nm. This process centres the wheel on the hub.
Lower vehicle onto its wheels.
Now use a torque wrench to tighten the wheel bolts to the
specified torque in diagonal sequence.
Carry out road test
After balancing the wheels and tyres, carry out a road test.

In unfavourable circumstances, the component tolerances of

This can be alleviated using a finish balancer. page 35

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 rim flange and the centre of the rim
is measured.

Finish balancer
Note

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.

Matching

General
When radial or lateral runout of the wheel and tyre coincide, the
imbalance of the wheel is amplified by the tyre.
For technical reasons, 100% true running is not possible
page 36 .
Before match mounting the used wheels which are fitted on the
vehicle, run the tyres warm. This will eliminate any flat spots
caused by storage or handling, page 39 .
Procedure for match mounting
Deflate the tyre.
Press the tyre beads off the rim flanges.
Coat the tyre bead all round with tyre fitting paste .
Rotate the tyre 180 relative to the wheel.
Inflate the tyre to approx. 4 bar.
Mount the wheel with tyre on the wheel balancer.
Check true running, that is, radial and lateral runout.
Note

If the radial and lateral runout is not within the specifications,

the tyre must be rotated again.

Deflate the tyre and press off the tyre beads from the rim
flanges.
Rotate the tyre 90 with respect to the wheel (1/4 of a turn).
Inflate the tyre to 4 bar again and check true running.
Note

If the specified values for radial and lateral runout are not ex

ceeded, the wheel can be balanced to 0 gram.

If the radial and lateral runout are not within the specified val

The terms flat area and flats are also used for the term flat spot.

Flat spots caused by storage or handling also cause vibration in


the same way as incorrectly balanced wheels do. It is important
that flat spots on the tread are identified as such.

AG.

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 standing flat
spot 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.
Requirements and conditions:
Check and, if necessary, correct inflation pressures.
Drive the car on a motorway where possible.

Vehicle pulls to one side

8.1

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
balance out 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. Taper is not visible and cannot be
measured with equipment available in the workshop.

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 inner and outer
shoulders of the tyre, resulting in differing vertical wheel forces.
Consequently the belt or tread will not be pressed onto the road
surface with the same force (F1, F2). A conical, or tapered, shape
develops. The resulting force (conicity 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.

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

9.1

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

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.

No repair should be attempted on a steel belted tyre of which the


structure has been punctured by a foreign body.
Corrosion can develop on the steel wires. This will always lead to
the separation of the rubber from the steel belt.
Generally, one cannot determine when the foreign body was em
bedded. The tyre structure may already have been damaged as
a result of driving with insufficient tyre pressure.
Damaged belt wires will sooner or later lead to separation of the
rubber from the steel belt. As a result, the tyre can fail completely
at some point long after the tyre was first damaged.
Tyre damage caused by foreign bodies is not covered by the war

The tyre shown here was periodically driven with an inflation

When the tyre rolls, strong shear forces develop between the lay

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.

may lead to the separation of the various components and rubber
compounds.

Tyres with stripped profile
Such damage usually develops over a longer period of time. If an
already damaged tyre is exposed to high stress, the centrifugal
forces which occur at high speeds can tear components off the
tyre.

The hump prevents the tyre from being pressed out of the rim
shoulder during travel with insufficient tyre pressure.
When the tyre is inflated, the bead of the tyre may not slip com
pletely over the outer rim hump.
In this case, there is a danger of the bead core becoming over
stretched if the tyre pressure is too high. The steel wires would
then rupture partially or completely. A broken bead core cannot
be detected from the outside.
Special requirements for tyres with run-flat properties
Wheel rims with a raised double hump (Extended Hump EH2) are
prescribed for tyres with run-flat properties (reinforced side walls)
page 58 . The raised double hump prevents the deflated tyre
from slipping off its seat on the wheel rim when the tyre is run
deflated.

To avoid damage, always observe the notes/instructions when


fitting/removing tyres with run-flat properties Running gear,
axles, steering; Rep. gr. 44 ; Fitting and removing tyres with runflat properties .
AG.

WARNING

Tyres with damaged bead cores are not seated safely and
securely on the rim. Such tyres are a safety risk!
In addition, there is a risk of the partly broken bead core
breaking apart during continued operation and the tyre
could suddenly tear open. If the bead core breaks during
inflation, the carcass will also be destroyed.

Tyre with broken bead core and destroyed carcass
The figure shows a tyre with a broken bead core and destroyed
carcass as a result of excess pulling force during fitting.
Bead damage due to faulty or incorrect tyre fitting with tyre-fitting
machine
The following errors, which may occur when tyres are fitted, can
lead to severe tyre damage:
If the opposite tyre bead is not seated completely in the rim
well when the upper bead is rolled in on the tyre fitting ma
chine. page 52 .
If the fitting head is improperly adjusted.
If the edge of the fitting roller rolls onto the bead.
If the guide rollers are worn or have sharp edges.
If the tyre bead is split.
In these cases, the bead, which is under great tension, can be cut
into in the direction of rotation, split and/or be pinched off down
to the core wire.
It is often possible to identify the tracks of the guide roller as it was
applied or ran off where the damage occurred.
Note

Both tyre beads as well as the rim shoulders must always be


coated with assembly paste .
If fitting damage remains undetected, there is a danger that the
tyre will fail later during operation.
THEREFORE!

Tyres with run-flat properties

10.1

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
1 - Tyres with run-flat properties (reinforced side walls -red-)
2 - Normal tyres
-II- Deflated tyre
When a normal tyre -2- deflates, the side walls are pressed
against the wheel rims. The side walls heat up extremely or stick
wageis
Volkstyre
and are therefore destroyed gwhen
n Adeflated.

Rolling resistance optimised tyres

The energy loss caused by the deformation of the tyre when roll
ing is known as rolling resistance.
With rolling resistance optimised tyres the deformation is greatly
reduced by a revised design and the use of optimised tread com
positions.
Volkswagen BlueMotion and BlueMotion technology models are
fitted with tyres with an optimised rolling resistance and all other
safety and customer relevant properties are of the latest level of
development.

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.
Cleaning agents
Suitable cleaning agents:

Plain water or water with soft soap


Water and essence of vinegar

Do not exceed the soaking time of the cleaning agent.

Prote
cted
by

If the finish is damaged, for example by stones, the damage must


be repaired as quickly as possible page 64 .
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.

12.8

Restoring alloy wheels


WARNING

Repairing a damaged wheel using heat treatment such as


welding or the addition or removal of material is absolutely
forbidden.
Damaged or deformed wheel rims or wheel rims with
cracked or deformed wheel bolt holes may not be re
paired.
Restoration may only be undertaken using approved and
genuine paint materials.
The manufactures guarantee no longer applies once a
wheel rim has been restored.

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.
The valve insert 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 only function correctly if it is free of
foreign particles, dirt and moisture. The compressed air system
must be free of water and oil!
3. Valve cap

The valve must be renewed every time a new tyre is fitted.

The valve cap must be fitted tightly to ensure air-tight sealing.

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.

A valve cap must always be screwed 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.

Fitting and removing wheels

13.1

Rotating 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 .

General
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.

CrossPolo from model year 2011

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

Golf from model year 2009

General
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 certificate statement
attached here.

Golf BlueMotion from model year


2009

General
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 certificate statement
attached here.

Golf GTD from model year 2010

General
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 certificate statement
attached here.

Golf GTI from model year 2010

General
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 certificate statement
attached 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.

General
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

Golf Plus BlueMotion from model


year 2010

General
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.

Golf Variant from model year 2010

General
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.

Golf Variant BlueMotion from model


year 2010

General
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 fitting instructions and torque specifications for wheels


from Votex genuine accessories may differ from those inten
ded for wheels from Volkswagen genuine parts.

ac

Therefore, always observe the torque settings for the wheel


bolts as well as the respective fitting and operating instructions.

Jetta BlueMotion from Model year


2008

General
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

New Beetle from model year 1999

General
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.

Scirocco R from model year 2010

General
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 certificate statement
. Volkswagen AG
attached here.

Touran from model year 2003

General
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.

The fitting instructions and torque specifications for wheels

CrossTouran from model year 2008

General
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
. Volkswagen AG
these products are installed.

The wheel and tyre combinations or changes listed in the vehicle

WARNING

The fitting instructions and torque specifications for wheels

Touran BlueMotion from model year


2009

General
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.
. Volkswagen AG

The fitting instructions and torque specifications for wheels


from Votex genuine accessories may differ from those inten
ded for wheels from Volkswagen genuine parts.
Therefore, always observe the torque settings for the wheel
bolts as well as the respective fitting and operating instructions.

Touran BlueMotion, type 1T model year 2009 to model year 2011

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.
