Vehicle care

Wheels and tyres

Tyre condition, wheel condition

Drive over edges slowly and at right

angles if possible. Driving over sharp

edges can cause tyre and wheel

damage. Do not trap tyres on the kerb

when parking.
Regularly check the wheels for

damage. Seek the assistance of a

workshop in the event of damage or

unusual wear.

Winter tyres

Winter tyres improve driving safety at

temperatures below 7 °C and should

therefore be fitted on all wheels.
In accordance with country-specific

regulations, affix the speed sticker in

the driver's field of view.
All tyre sizes are permitted as winter

tyres 3 249.

Tyre designations

E.g. 225/55 R 18 98 V
225 : tyre width, mm

55 : cross-section ratio (tyre height

to tyre width), %


: belt type: Radial

RF : type: RunFlat

18 : wheel diameter, inches

98 : load index e.g. 98 is equivalent

to 750 kg


: speed code letter

Speed code letter:
Q : up to 160 km/h

S : up to 180 km/h

T : up to 190 km/h

H : up to 210 km/h

V : up to 240 km/h

W : up to 270 km/h
Choose a tyre appropriate for the

maximum speed of your vehicle.
The maximum speed is achievable at

kerb weight with driver (75 kg) plus

125 kg payload. Optional equipment

could reduce the maximum speed of

the vehicle.
Performance 3 246.

Directional tyres

Directional tyres should be mounted

so that they rotate in the correct

direction. The proper rotation

direction is indicated by a symbol

(e.g. an arrow) on the sidewall.

Tyre pressure

Check the pressure of cold tyres at

least every 14 days and before any

long journey. Do not forget the spare

wheel. This also applies to vehicles

with tyre pressure monitoring system.

Tyre pressure 3 249.


Vehicle care


The tyre pressure information label

on the left door frame indicates the

original equipment tyres and the

correspondent tyre pressures.
The tyre pressure data refers to cold

tyres. It applies to summer and winter

Always inflate the spare tyre to the

pressure specified for full load.
The ECO tyre pressure serves to

achieve the smallest amount of fuel

consumption possible.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair

safety, vehicle handling, comfort and

fuel economy and will increase tyre

Tyre pressures differ depending on

various options. For the correct tyre

pressure value, follow the procedure


1. Identify the engine identifier code.

Engine data 3 245.

2. Identify the respective tyre.

The tyre pressure tables show all

possible tyre combinations 3 249.

For the tyres approved for your

vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of

Conformity provided with your vehicle

or other national registration

The driver is responsible for correct

adjustment of tyre pressure.

9 Warning

If the pressure is too low, this can

result in considerable tyre warm-

up and internal damage, leading to

tread separation and even to tyre

blow-out at high speeds.

9 Warning

For specific tyres the

recommended tyre pressure as

shown in the tyre pressure table

may exceed the maximum tyre

pressure as indicated on the tyre.

Never exceed the maximum tyre

pressure as indicated on the tyre.

Temperature dependency

The tyre pressure depends on the

temperature of the tyre. During

driving, tyre temperature and

pressure increase. Tyre pressure

values provided on the tyre

information label and tyre pressure

chart are valid for cold tyres, which

means at 20 °C.
The pressure increases by nearly

10 kPa for a 10 °C temperature

increase. This must be considered

when warm tyres are checked.
The tyre pressure value displayed in

the Driver Information Centre shows

the real tyre pressure. A cooled down

tyre will show a decreased value,

which does not indicate an air leak.

Tyre deflation detection


The tyre deflation detection system

continually checks the rotation speed

of all four wheels and warns on low

tyre pressure condition once vehicle

is driving. This is achieved by

comparing tyre rolling circumference

with reference values.



Vehicle care

If a tyre loses pressure the control

indicator w illuminates and a warning

message is displayed in the Driver

Information Centre.
In this case reduce speed, avoid

sharp cornering and strong braking.

Stop at next safe opportunity and

check tyre pressure.
Control indicator w 3 99.
After adjusting tyre pressure initialise

system to extinguish the control

indicator and restart system.


Deflation detection system warns

just about low tyre pressure

condition and does not replace

In case of a system malfunction a

message is displayed in the Driver

Information Centre. Set correct tyre

pressure and reinitialise system. If the

failure continues to be displayed,

contact a workshop. The system is

inoperable when ABS or ESC has a

malfunction or a temporary spare

wheel is used. Once the road tyre has

been refitted, check the tyre pressure

with cold tyres and initialise the


System initialisation

After tyre pressure correction or

wheel change, the system must be

initialised to learn new circumference

reference values:

1. Always ensure that all four tyres

have correct tyre pressure



2. Apply manual parking brake.

3. Press w to reset deflation

detection system.

4. Reset is confirmed by pop-up


After initialisation system

automatically calibrates to new tyre

pressures during driving. After longer

drive the system will adopt and

monitor new pressures.
Always check tyre pressure with cold

● Tyre pressure has been changed
● Load condition has been


● Wheels have been swapped or


The system will not warn

instantaneously on a tyre blow out or

a rapid deflation. This is due to

required calculation time.

Tread depth

Check tread depth at regular



Vehicle care


Tyres should be replaced for safety

reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm

(4 mm for winter tyres).
For safety reasons, it is

recommended that the tread depth of

the tyres on one axle should not vary

by more than 2 mm.

The legally permissible minimum

tread depth (1.6 mm) has been

reached when the tread has worn

down as far as one of the tread wear

indicators (TWI). Their position is

indicated by markings on the


If there is more wear at the front than

the rear, swap round front wheels and

rear wheels periodically. Ensure that

the direction of rotation of the wheels

remains the same.
Tyres age, even if they are not used.

We recommend tyre replacement

every 6 years.

Changing tyre and wheel


If tyres of a different size than those

fitted at the factory are used, it may be

necessary to reprogramme the

speedometer as well as the nominal

tyre pressure and make other vehicle

After converting to a different tyre

size, have the label with tyre

pressures replaced and the tyre

deflation detection system

reinitialised. 3 219

9 Warning

The use of unsuitable tyres or

wheels may lead to accidents and

will invalidate the vehicle

operating permit.

Wheel covers

Wheel covers and tyres that are

factory approved for the respective

vehicle and comply with all of the

relevant wheel and tyre combination

requirements must be used.
If the wheel covers and tyres used are

not factory approved, the tyres must

not have a rim protection ridge.
