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.
G)
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
-
symbol
may
be
permit-
ted.
Snow
chains
improve
both
driving
and
braking
in
winter
road
conditions.
>
Only
install
snow
chains
on
the
front
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
roads
with-
out
snow.
Otherwise,
you
could
impair
driving
ability
and
damage
the
tires.

WARNING
Using
incorrect
snow
chains
or
installing
snow
chains
incorrectly
can
result
in
loss
of
vehicle
control,
which
increases
the
risk
of
an acci-
dent.
()
Note
Snow
chains
can
damage
the
rims
and
wheel
covers*
if
the
chains
come
into
direct
contact
with
them.
Remove
the
wheel
cov-
ers*
first.
Use
coated
snow
chains.
Do
not
install
and
use
snow
chains
if
there
is
a
malfunction
in
the
air
suspension*,
be-
cause
the
vehicle
height
will
be
very
low.
If
you
drive
with
snow
chains
anyway,
the
wheel
housings
and
other
vehicle
compo-
nents
can
be
severely
damaged.

Low-profile
tires
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
increase
road noise
when
driving
on
roads
in
poor
condi-
tion.
Low-profile
tires
can
become
damaged
more
quickly
than
standard
tires
when
driving over
large
bumps,
potholes,
manhole
covers,
and
curbs.
Therefore,
it
is
particularly
important
to
maintain
the
correct
tire
pressure
>
page
256.
To
reduce
the
risk
of
damage
to
the
tires
and
rims, drive
very
carefully
on
poor
roads.
Check
your
wheels
regularly
every
2,000
mi
(3,000
km)
for
damage.
For
example,
check
for
bulges/cracks
on
the
tires
or
deformations/cracks
on
the
rims.
After
a
heavy
impact
or
damage,
have
the
tires
and
rims
inspected
or
replaced
immediately
