Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Tires, Reinforced, Extra Load

Some time ago, the designation “Reinforced” was replaced with the designation “Extra Load” by some tire manufacturers. In countries outside Europe, this designation has been conventional for some time. There are no technical differences.
Some tire manufacturers also use the “XL” designation for Extra Load tires.
Tires with the designations “Reinforced” or “Extra Load (XL)” are the same.
V winter tires with XL designation have a higher load capacity than the V winter tires without this designation.
Higher speeds can be attained with XL V-winter tires, but the maximum speed of the V tires of 240 km/h (149.12 mph) is not permissible for every vehicle.
The Same Conditions Apply for These Tires as for V Winter Tires without Special Designation!
