WARNING

New tyres or tyres which are old, worn down or damaged cannot provide full levels of vehicle control and braking power.

For technical reasons, it is not generally possible to use the wheels from other vehicles. This can also apply to wheels of the same vehicle type. Refer to the vehicle documentation and ask a Volkswagen dealership if necessary.
