General
information
>
Check
your
tires
regularly
for
damage,
such
as
punctures,
cuts,
cracks,
and
bulges.
Remove
foreign
objects
from
the
tire
tread.
>If
driving
over
curbs
or
similar
obstacles,
drive
slowly
and
ap-
proach
the
curb
at
an
angle.
>Have
faulty
tires
or
rims
re-
placed
immediately.
>Protect
your
tires
from
oil,
grease,
and
fuel.
>Mark
tires
before
removing
them
so
that
the
same
running
direction
can
be
maintained
if
they
are
reinstalled.
>Lay
tires
flat
when
storing
and
store
them
ina
cool,
dry
location
with
as
little
exposure
to
light
as
possible.
A
WARNING
—Never
drive
faster
than
the
maximum
permitted
speed
for
your
tires.
This
could
cause
the
tires
to
heat
up
too
much.
This
increases
the
risk
of
an acci-
dent
because
it
can
cause
the
tire
to
burst.
—Always
adapt
your
driving
to
the
road
and
traffic
condi-
tions.
Drive
carefully
and
re-
duce
your
speed
on
icy
or
slip-
pery
roads.
Even
winter
tires
can
lose
traction
on
black
ice.
()
Note
—Please
note
that
summer
and
winter
tires
are
designed
for
the
conditions
that
are
typical
in
those
seasons.
Audi
recom-
mends
using
winter
tires
dur-
ing
the
winter
months.
Low
temperatures
significantly
de-
crease
the
elasticity
of
summ-
er
tires,
which
affects
traction
and
braking
ability.
If
summer
tires
are
used
in
very
cold
tem-
peratures,
cracks
can
form
on
the
tread
bars,
resulting
in
permanent
tire
damage
that
can
cause
loud
driving
noise
and
unbalanced
tires.
—Burnished,
polished
or
chromed
rims
must
not
be
used
in
winter
driving
condi-
tions.
The
surface
of
the
rims
does
not
have
sufficient
corro-
sion
protection
for
this
and
could
be
permanently
dam-
aged
by
road
salt
or
similar
substances.
