WARNING
Wheel
bolts
that
are
tightened
or
repaired
in-
correctly
can
become
loose
and
result
in
loss
of
vehicle
control,
which
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
For
the
correct
tightening
specifi-
cation,

Finishing.
Always
keep
the
wheel
bolts
and
the
threads
in
the
wheel
hub
clean
and
free
of
grease.
Only
use
wheel
bolts
that
fit
the
rim.
Always
have
damaged
rims
repaired
by an
authorized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility.
Never
repair
or
disassemble
rims yourself,
because
this
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
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

or

cility
can
inform
you
about
the
maximum

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.
(i)
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
snow
chains
on
the
rear
wheels.
>
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
speed
of
30
mph
(50
km/h).
Observe
the
local
regulations.
Use
of
snow
chains
is
only
permitted
with
certain
rim/tire
combinations
due
to
technical
reasons.
Check
with
an
authorized
Audi
dealer
or
author-
ized
Audi
Service
Facility
to
see
if
you
may
use
snow
chains.
Use
fine-mesh
snow
chains.
They
must
not
add
more
than 0.53
in
(13.5
mm)
in
height,
including
the
chain
lock.
You
must
remove
the
snow
chains
on

with-
out
snow.
Otherwise,
you
could
impair
driving
ability
and
damage
the
tires.
