Volkswagen Touran Service Manual: Tires, Storing

Storage Room
Tire storage must be:
Dark,
Dry,
Cool and
Ventilated
 
  WARNING
Stored tires must not come in contact with fuel, oil, grease or chemicals under any circumstances. Otherwise, the material in the tire will be damaged by chemical reactions which are not always visible.
This may lead to life-threatening situations when the car is driven.
However, tire damage occurs only when the reaction time of the chemicals is long. If a few drops of fuel land on a tire during a fill-up, this is harmless.
Tire Storage
Complete Wheels
Tires mounted on wheels can be stored flat, stacked on upon another. When doing this, always ensure that wheels are clean and dry. The air pressure should be raised to a maximum of 3 bar (43.5 psi).
Tires Without Wheels
Tires without wheels are best stored standing vertically. If tires lie stacked upon another for longer periods of time, they will be strongly pressed together. This makes mounting more difficult because the tires do not lie on the bead seat. If the tires are stored standing vertically, it is recommended to turn them every 14 days to avoid severe flattening.
   

Tires, Reinforced, Extra Load

Some time ago, the designation "Reinforced" was replaced with the designation "Extra Load" by some tire manufacturers. In countries outside Europe, this designation has been conventional for some time. There are no technical differences.
Some tire manufacturers also use the "XL" designation for Extra Load tires.
Tires with the designations "Reinforced" or "Extra Load (XL)" are the same.
V winter tires with XL designation have a higher load capacity than the V winter tires without this designation.
Higher speeds can be attained with XL V-winter tires, but the maximum speed of the V tires of 240 km/h (149.12 mph) is not permissible for every vehicle.
The Same Conditions Apply for These Tires as for V Winter Tires without Special Designation!
