Recommended Spare Tires and Emergency Wheels

If Necessary, Explain the following Specified Information to the Customer and Also Refer Them to the Vehicle Owner's Manual.

The notes listed in the following also apply to spare wheels, for example 6.5 J x 16 with 215/65 R 16 tires, which are marked with the lettering "MAX 80 km/h" or "MAX 50 mph" on a yellow sticker.

Volswagen Tiguan. N44-10552

Note

  • The vehicle may have a spare tire with the above mentioned sticker in place of an emergency tire, depending on the vehicle equipment.
  • The emergency/spare tire is designed only for sporadic and short-term use. Therefore it is to be replaced with a normal tire as soon as possible.
  • After mounting the spare tire, the tire pressure must be checked as quickly as possible.
  • The tire pressures are listed on the tire pressure label on the inside of the fuel filler door and on the driver side B-pillar.
  • Always pay attention to the speed rating on the spare tire ("MAX 80 km/h" or "MAX 50 mph").
  • Wide Open Throttle (WOT) acceleration, hard braking and driving rapidly around curves should be prevented.
  • Never drive with more than one spare tire.
  • For technical reasons, it is not permitted to use snow chains on the spare tire.
  • If the vehicle must be driven with snow chains, the spare tire must be installed on the rear axle when there is a faulty front wheel. The dismounted rear wheel must then be mounted in place of the faulty front wheel.

Refer to the Parts Catalog for replacement part number.
