How to use the compact temporary spare wheel
Should you ever have a punctured tyre, the compact temporary spare wheel is only intended for temporary use until you can reach a workshop. The standard-size road wheel should be replaced as soon as possible.

Please note the following restrictions when using the compact temporary spare wheel. This spare wheel has been specially designed for your vehicle, thus, it cannot be changed with the spare wheel from another vehicle.

No other type of tyre (normal summer or winter tyre) may be fitted on the compact temporary spare wheel rim.

Snow chains
For technical reasons, snow chains must not be used on the compact temporary spare wheel.

If you should have a puncture on one of the front wheels when using snow chains, fit the compact temporary spare in place of one of the rear wheels.

You can then attach the snow chains to the wheel taken from the rear and use this wheel to replace the punctured front wheel.

WARNING

• The tyre pressures must be checked and corrected as soon as possible.

The tyre pressure for the spare wheel is 4.2 bar. Failure to do so could result in an accident.
• Do not drive faster than 80 km/h. Higher speeds can cause an accident.
• Avoid heavy acceleration, hard braking and fast cornering, risk of accident.
• Never use two or more compact spare tyres at the same time, risk of accident.
• No other type of tyre (normal summer or winter tyre) may be fitted on the compact temporary spare wheel rim.

Note
• Emergency wheels must never be used on vehicles fitted with Brembo brakes. These vehicles are supplied with a tyre repair kit.
