In winter road conditions winter tyres will considerably improve the car's handling. The design of summer tyres (width, rubber compound, tread pattern) gives less grip on ice and snow. Volkswagen urgently recommends you use winter tyres or all-year tyres on all four wheels of the vehicle, particularly if winter conditions are expected on the roads. Winter tyres will also improve the braking response of the vehicle and will help to reduce braking distances in winter weather. Volkswagen recommends that winter tyres be fitted to the vehicle at temperatures under +7 В°C (+45 В°F).
Winter tyres lose their effectiveness when the tread is worn down to a depth of 4 mm. Winter tyres also largely lose their effectiveness through ageing вЂ“ regardless of the tread depth.
The following applies when using winter tyres:
The driving speed for winter tyres is limited according to the speed index вЂ‰ .
In some vehicle versions, a speed warning can be set in the menu MFD (multi-function display) in the instrument cluster вЂ‰ .
If you use V-rated tyres the speed limits and tyre pressure will be determined by engine size. You must ask your Volkswagen dealership for the highest permitted speed and required tyre pressure.
WARNINGThe improved winter driving characteristics afforded by the winter tyres should not encourage you to take any risks.
The summer tyres should be fitted in good time at the end of the winter. The vehicle handling is better if summer tyres are fitted at temperatures above +7 В°C (+45 В°F). They are quieter, do not wear so quickly and reduce fuel consumption.
In vehicles with a tyre pressure monitoring display, the systems have to re-learn after wheels are changed вЂ‰ .
Volkswagen dealerships can provide details on permissible winter tyre sizes.
