The design of the wheel bolts is matched to the rims. If different rims are fitted, the correct wheel bolts with the right length and correctly shaped bolt heads must be used. This ensures that wheels are fitted securely and that the brake system works properly вЂ‰ .
For technical reasons, it is not generally possible to use the wheels from other vehicles. This can also apply to wheels of the same vehicle type.
The tyres and rims approved by Volkswagen are specially matched to the characteristics of the vehicle and make a major contribution to good road holding and safe handling.
Wheel bolts must always be tightened with the correct tightening torque вЂ‰ .
Rims with bolted on rings
Rims with bolted on rings consist of several components. These components are fastened using special bolts and special fastening technology.

Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose вЂ‰.
Rims with bolted on trims
Rims may have removable trims which are attached to the rim with self-locking bolts. Damaged trims may only be repaired by a qualified workshop. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose вЂ‰.
WARNINGThe use of unsuitable or damaged rims can impair vehicle safety and cause accidents and serious injury.
WARNINGIncorrect loosening and tightening of the bolts on rims with bolted on rings can cause accidents and serious injury.
