Replacing tyres

Additional information for vehicles with a tyre monitor display

In vehicles with a tyre pressure monitoring display, the systems have to re-learn after wheels are changed   .

Further information about the tyre pressure monitoring system, how it functions and what you must know   .

WARNING

New tyres will have to be run in as they will initially have reduced grip and braking effect.

WARNING

Wheels must have the necessary freedom of operation. If the wheels do not have the necessary freedom of operation, the tyre could rub on parts of the running gear, the vehicle body and the brake system. This could lead to a malfunction of the brake system and to tread separation and thus to a tyre bursting.

The actual size of the various different tyre makes may, despite identical size details, vary from these specified dimensions or the tyre contours may vary considerably.

Volkswagen-approved tyres are guaranteed to have the dimensions that are suitable for the vehicle. The salesperson will have to provide a certificate from the tyre manufacturer for other tyre makes to prove that the tyre is also suitable for the vehicle. This certificate must be put in a safe place and kept in the vehicle.
