The manufacturer of the vehicle does not rec‐
ommend the use of retreaded tires.
Winter tires are recommended for operating on
Although so-called all-season M+S tires provide
better winter traction than summer tires, they
usually do not provide the same level of perform‐
ance as winter tires.
Maximum speed of winter tires
If the maximum speed of the vehicle is higher
than the permissible speed for the winter tires,
then attach a label showing the permissible maxi‐
mum speed in the field of view. The label is avail‐
able from a dealer's service center or another
qualified service center or repair shop.
With winter tires mounted, observe and do not
exceed the permissible maximum speed.
Changing runflat tires
For your own safety, use only runflat tires. No
spare tire is available in the case of a flat tire. Fur‐
ther information is available from a dealer's serv‐
ice center or another qualified service center or
Rotating wheels between axles
Different wear patterns can occur on the front
and rear axles depending on individual driving
conditions. The tires can be rotated in pairs be‐
tween the axles to achieve even wear. Further in‐
formation is available from a dealer's service cen‐
ter or another qualified service center or repair
shop. After rotating, check the tire pressure and
correct, if needed.
Rotating the tires is not permissible on vehicles
with different tire sizes or rim sizes on the front
and rear axles.
Tire inflation pressure
Do not exceed the maximum tire inflation pres‐
sure indicated on the side wall of the tire.
Store wheels and tires in a cool, dry and dark
Always protect tires against all contact with oil,
grease, and solvents.
Do not leave tires in plastic bags.
Remove dirt from wheels or tires.
Run-flat tires permit continued driving under re‐
stricted conditions even in the event of a com‐
plete loss of tire inflation pressure.
The wheels consist of tires that are self-support‐
ing, to a limited degree, and possibly special
The support of the sidewall allows the tire to re‐
main drivable to a restricted degree in the event
of a tire inflation pressure loss.
Follow the instructions for continued driving with
a flat tire.
Your vehicle handles differently with a run-flat
tire with no or low inflation pressure; for in‐
stance, your lane stability when braking is re‐
duced, braking distances are longer and the
self-steering properties will change. There is a
