Underinflation

WARNING
Tires with pressure that is too low can overheat and burst as a consequence. In addition, they also suffer from excessive and/ or irregular wear, which can severely impair the braking properties and the driving characteristics. There is a risk of an accident.

Avoid tire pressures that are too low in all the tires, including the spare wheel.

Underinflated tires may: Х overheat, leading to tire defects Х have an adverse effect on handling characteristics
Х wear quickly and unevenly Х have an adverse effect on fuel consumption

Overinflation

WARNING
Tires with excessively high pressure can burst because they are damaged more easily by road debris, potholes etc. In addition, they also suffer from irregular wear, which can severely impair the braking properties and the driving characteristics. There is a risk of an accident.

Avoid tire pressures that are too high in all the tires, including the spare wheel.

Overinflated tires may: Х increase the braking distance Х have an adverse effect on handling characteristics
Х wear quickly and unevenly Х have an adverse effect on ride comfort Х be more susceptible to damage
