Volkswagen Tiguan Service and Repair Manual: Wheel and Tire Combinations

General Information

Volkswagen vehicles are engineered according to the latest developments in safety technology. To keep it that way, it is recommended to use only original Volkswagen replacement parts. These can be recognized by the VW Audi trademark and by the part number. These parts are known to be reliable, safe and suitable.

Despite constant survey of the market, we cannot assess other products on these points, even where in isolated cases they have been passed by official inspectors or have been granted official approval. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability if these products are installed.

Note

  • Products from Volkswagen Original Replacement Parts and Volkswagen Accessories may differ in regards to assembly requirements, tightening specifications, etc.
  • Pay attention to the wheel bolt tightening specifications.
  • Pay attention to the installation instructions.

The wheel and tire combinations or retrofittings listed in the vehicle tables refer exclusively to Volkswagen original disc wheels. Release of wheel/tire combinations or retrofittings with disc wheels from the accessories trade is not possible with the enclosed approval certificate.

Information about the Recommended Tires

  • Tires are one of the most important construction elements of a vehicle and significantly influence driving safety. Therefore, the numerous requirements detailed in the DIN standards and the W.d.K. (Trade association of the German rubber industry) and tire manufacturer guidelines must be fulfilled. In addition, extensive tests are performed by Volkswagen before the tires are approved for original equipment on our vehicles.
  • The following lists all tire makes/treads with which VW vehicles are equipped at the factory at the time this guide was published.
  • These tire makes/treads fulfill the specified requirements. We therefore recommend using the tire makes/treads recommended in this guide when equipping vehicles with new tires.
  • Be sure to read the information regarding run-flat tires.
  • The winter tire sizes listed in the tables are the most sensible in terms of dynamic and economical driving. In principle, all other wheel/tire combinations listed in the Certificate of Conformity or in the vehicle registration Part I can be installed as M & S tires.
