Tires, Bringing to Mounting Temperature

Caution

There is a risk of damaging tires with strong heat.

  • Never heat the tires with a heater or a hot air gun.
  • Warm tires with warm water or warm air (maximum 50 ºC (86 ºF)).

The optimum mounting temperature of a tire is between 15 ºC and 30 ºC (59 and 86 ºF) on the inside of the tire. The temperature of the tire surface during the warm-up phase should not be considered as the interior temperature of the tire.

  • Store cold tires one day before installing in the workshop on an insulated surface a wood pallet or something similar. Store the tires separately so that the surrounding air can warm them quickly.

Warm-Up Time for Urgent Cases

  • Tires with an interior temperature over 0 ºC (32 ºF): minimum of two hours at minimum 19 ºC (66.2 ºF)
  • Tires with an interior temperature under 0 ºC (32 ºF): minimum of two and a half hours at minimum 19 ºC (66.2 ºF)

Clean up condensation occasionally with a cloth.

Tires, Mounting

Tires, Mounting, Wheels without and with Tire Pressure Monitoring System

  • Only trained personnel can perform the assembly work on run-flat tires.
  • If equipped check the tire pressure monitoring sensor with the vehicle diagnostic tester and if necessary replace.

Bring the tires to the mounting temperature.

Note

  • When cleaning disc wheel (rim), the tire pressure monitoring sensor (if equipped) must not come into contact with water or be blown with pressurized air.
  • If equipped handle the glued-on wheel trim carefully. Surface slightly scratched.
  • Replace the damaged rim wheel trim.

 

  • Clean the rim.

  • Coat rim flanges, tire beads and inside of upper tire beads thoroughly with tire mounting paste.
  • Place the inner side of the tire on the rim.
  • Turn the rim until the tire valve of the tire pressure monitoring sensor aligns with the mounting head.
  • Push the tires between the tire valve or the tire pressure monitoring sensor and the mounting head into the bed in direction of -arrow-.
  • Let the tire dismounting/mounting machine run clockwise until the mounting head is in front of the tire valve or the tire pressure monitoring sensor. Slide the lower tire bead over the rim flange.
  • Turn the rim until the tire valve of the tire pressure monitoring sensor aligns with the mounting head.
  • Let the tire dismounting/mounting machine run clockwise until the mounting head is in front of the tire valve or the tire pressure monitoring sensor. Slide the upper tire bead over the rim flange.

Volswagen Tiguan. N44-10326

Caution

There is a risk of damaging the rim due through too high spring pressure.

Never set the spring pressure over 3.3 bar (47.86 psi).

  • Inflate the tire to maximum pressure of 3.3 bar (47.86 psi) (spring pressure).
  • If tire beads do not make contact completely on disc wheel edge, then release air, press off tire bead once more and coat rim flange thoroughly again with tire mounting paste.
  • When the tire bead makes contact on the bead seat, increase the pressure to 4 bar (58 psi).
  • If the tire bead does not make complete contact with the bead seat, dismount the tire and mount it again.
  • Turn the valve insert.
  • Fill the tire with the specified tire pressure.
  • Balance the tire.

Tires and Rims, Matching

  • If necessary repair flat spots from standing.
  • Dismount the tire.
  • Turn the tire about 180º against the rim.
  • Inflate the tire to 4 bar (58 psi).
  • Tension the wheel with the tire on the balancing machine.
  • Check the tire and wheel radial and lateral run-out.
  • If the radial and lateral run-out are within the specified values, balance the wheel to 0.
  • If the radial and lateral run-out are outside the specified values, match the tire and rim again and rotate the tire 90º relative to the rim.
  • Check the tire and wheel radial and lateral run-out again.
  • If the radial and lateral run-out are within the specified values, balance the wheel to 0.
  • If the radial and lateral run-out are outside the specified values, match the tire and rim again and rotate the tire 180º relative to the rim.
  • Check the tire and wheel radial and lateral run-out again.
  • If the radial and lateral run-out are within the specified values, balance the wheel to 0.
