The
loose
wheel
warning
system
can
also
stop
working
when
there
is
an
ESC
malfunction.
Using
snow
chains
may
result
in
a
system
malfunction.
Winter
tires
significantly
improve
the
vehicle's
handling
when
driving
in
winter
conditions.
Be-
cause
of
their
construction
(width,
compound,
tread
pattern),
summer
tires
provide
less
traction
on
ice
and
snow.
>
Use
winter
tires
on
all
four
wheels.
>
Only
use
winter
tires
that
are
approved
for
your
vehicle.
>
Please
note
that
the
maximum
permitted
speed
may
be
lower
with
winter
tires

An
author-
ized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Fa-
cility
can
inform
you
about
the
maximum
per-
mitted

for
your
tires.

The
effectiveness
of
winter
tires
is
reduced
great-
ly
when
the
tread
is
worn
down
to
a
depth
of
0.16
in
(4
mm).
The characteristics
of
winter
tires
also
decrease
greatly
as
the
tire
ages,
regardless
of
the
remaining
tread.
@
For
the
sake
of
the
environment
Reinstall
summer
tires
at
the
appropriate
time,
because
they
provide
better
handling
when
roads
are
free
of
snow
and
ice.
Summer
tires
cause
less
road
noise,
tire
wear,
and
fuel
consumption.
Tips
You
can
also
use
all
season
tires
instead
of
winter
tires.
Please
note
that
in
some
coun-
tries
where
winter
tires
are
required,
only
win-
ter
tires
with
the
4\
symbol
may
be
permit-
ted.

Snow
chains
improve
both
driving
and
braking
in
winter
road
conditions.
>
Only
install

on
the
front

>
Check
and
correct
the
seating
of
the
snow
chains
after
driving
a
few
feet,
if
necessary.
Fol-
low
the
instructions
from
the
manufacturer.
>
Note
the
maximum

of
30
mph
(50
km/h).
Observe
the
local

Use
of
snow

is
only
permitted
with
certain
rim/tire

due
to
technical
reasons.
Check
with
an
authorized
Audi
dealer
or
author-
ized
Audi
Service
Facility
to
see
if
you

They
must
not
add
more
than
0.40
inch
(10.5
mm)
in
height,
includ-
ing
the

Applies
to:
vehicles
with
low-profile
tires
Compared
to
other
tire/rim
combinations,
low-
profile
tires
offer
a
wider
tread
surface
and
a
larger
rim
diameter
with
shorter
tire
sidewalls.
This
results
in
an
agile
driving
style.
However,
it
may
reduce
the
level
of
comfort
and
