it
will
be

WARNING
Wheel
bolts
that
are
tightened
incorrectly
can
become
loose
and
result
in
loss
of
vehicle
con-
trol,
which
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
If
a
message
appears,
reduce
your
speed
im-
mediately
and
avoid any hard
steering
or
braking
maneuvers.
Stop
as
soon
as
possible
and
check
the
wheel
bolts.
Check
your
wheels
for
damage.
Have
the
damaged
wheels
checked
and/or
replaced
immediately
by an
authorized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility.
Under
certain
conditions
(such
as
a
sporty
driving
style,
winter
conditions,
or
unpaved
roads),
the
message
may
be
delayed.
The
driver
is
responsible
for
ensuring
that
the
wheels
are
attached
correctly.
(i)
Tips
The
loose
wheel
warning
system
can
also
stop
working
when
there
is
an
ESC
malfunc-
tion.
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
