8.3.1. The general information

On cars Passat establish ся бескамерные radial tyres and disks of the various sizes.

Keep in mind, at a disk choice it is necessary to consider not only diameter and width of a disk, but also distance from a landing surface to a line of symmetry of a disk.

Originally new tyres yet do not provide their sufficient coupling with a road covering; the first 100 km it is necessary to move with moderate speed and with extra care – to this period of the tyre "прикатываются". Successful realisation of this process promotes increase of service life of tyres.

Depending on design features and drawing of a protector of tyres, the height of drawing of a protector of new tyres varies on separate models of tyres and manufacturers.

From time to time tyres are while in service put on trial on durability (result of that punctures, cuts, ruptures and swellings can be). It is necessary to delete foreign matters from a protector of tyres regularly.

To avoid damages of tyres and wheel disks, follows slowly and whenever possible at right angle to overcome бордюрные stones and other similar obstacles.

Frequently tyres and disks have the latent damages. Occurrence of unusual vibration or car withdrawal aside can specify in tyre damage. If there is a suspicion that the tyre has damage, it is necessary to lower immediately speed! Check up tyres on absence of damages (cracks, swellings, etc.). If it is not revealed any external damages, slowly and cautiously follow to the nearest service enterprise a Volkswagen for careful check of a condition of tyres.

It is necessary to avoid contact of tyres to oils, greasings and fuel.

Instead of the lost dustproof caps it is necessary to put new caps immediately.

Before removal of wheels it is necessary to make corresponding marks on them so that at return installation it was possible to keep a former direction of rotation of tyres.

The removed wheels and tyres should be stored in a pure and dry condition, whenever possible in a dark premise. The tyres not mounted on disks should be stored in vertical position.

Before removal of wheels increase pressure in tyres by 0,3–0,5 bar.
