Volkswagen Touran Service Manual: Run-Flat Tire, Retrofitting/Conditions for use of Run-Flat Tires

  Caution
Using run-flat tires on vehicles is permitted only if the run-flat tire is supplied with the vehicle either as standard equipment or as an option.
Because pressure loss in a run-flat tire is not always visible, these tires should only be used on vehicles equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. This system warns the driver when the tire pressure falls below a certain value.
The following are permitted:
Direct measuring systems. Refer to → Suspension, Wheels, Steering; Rep. Gr.44.
Indirect measuring systems. Refer to → Suspension, Wheels, Steering; Rep. Gr.44.
Only mount run-flat tires on disc wheels with an extended double hump (extended hump - EH2). Refer to → Chapter "Identification".
Pay close attention to the installation instructions. Refer to → Chapter "Tires, Mounting".
Do not install both run-flat tires and standard tires, even if the two tires on each axle will be the same.
A standard tire can only be installed in exception cases for a short time or a limited driving distance. The specific characteristics designed for driving with a flat tire will not be available. The driver must be informed of this.
Always Pay Attention to the Recommended Tire Brand. Refer to → Wheel and Tire Guide; Rep. Gr.44.

  WARNING
Run-flat tires must be replaced after they have gone flat.

General Information
  The wheel must be inspected before mounting, as with conventional wheel and tire systems.
  Check the rim for damage after a flat tire (true running, axial run-out, other damage) because the rim could be damaged in an emergency by driving through a pothole. Refer to → Chapter "Wheel, Mounting".
  A damaged rim should be replaced.
