Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Emergency Wheels

Spare Wheel Notes

If Necessary, Explain to the Customer the Information About Tires and Refer the Customer to the Owner's Manual.
   
The following notes listed also apply to spare wheels that are marked with a yellow sticker with the note “MAX 80 km/h” or “MAX 50 mph”.
  Note
The vehicle may have a spare wheel with the above mentioned sticker in place of an emergency wheel, depending on the vehicle equipment.
Emergency wheel/spare wheel is designed only for sporadic and brief use. Therefore it is to be replaced with the normal wheel again as soon as possible.
After mounting the emergency wheel/spare wheel, tire inflation pressure must be checked as soon as possible.
The tire pressures are listed on the tire pressure label on the inside of the fuel filler door and on the B-pillar on the driver side.
Always observe the speed rating on the spare tire on the emergency wheel (“MAX 80 km/h” or “MAX 50 mph”).
Wide Open Throttle (WOT) acceleration, strong braking and rapid driving around curves should be prevented.
It is not permissible to use snow chains on the emergency wheel for technical reasons.
If vehicle must be driven with snow chains, therefore the emergency wheel must be installed on the rear axle for a breakdown on the front axle. The rear wheel freed up must then be mounted in place of the faulty front wheel.
Refer to the Parts Catalog for replacement part number.
