Vehicle tools

Tools

Vehicles with tyre repair set

The tool kit and tyre repair set are in

a storage compartment below the

floor cover in the load compartment.

Vehicles with spare wheel

The jack and tool kit are in a stowage

compartment in the boot below the

spare wheel. Spare wheel 3 200

TwinTop

The tools for emergency operation of

the convertible hardtop are stowed in

the glove compartment.

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.

Tyres

Tyres of size 225/45 R 17 are only

permitted if the vehicle is equipped

with electronic stability program.

Astra OPC "Nürburgring

Edition" with tyres 225/40 ZR 18

This model is factory-fitted with high-

performance sports tyres, size

225/40 ZR 18. These tyres are

approved for use on public roads but

have typical racing characteristics

and a correspondingly shallow tread.

The tyres provide sportily oriented

and experienced drivers with better

performance at faster speeds on dry

road surfaces but can cause the

vehicle to break away without

warning if this limit is exceeded. Avoid

adopting a risky driving style because

of this improved performance. In wet

conditions adapt your driving style

and speed to the shallow tread.

Winter tyres

Winter tyres improve driving safety at

temperatures below 7 °C and should

therefore be fitted on all wheels.

Tyres of size 185/65 R 15,

195/60 R 15, 195/65 R 15 and

205/55 R 16 can be used as winter

tyres.
Tyres of size 205/50 R17 must only

be used as winter tyres.
Tyres of size 215/45 R 17,

225/45 R 17, 225/40 R 18

1)

,

225/40 ZR18 and 235/35 R 19 must

not be used as winter tyres.
Saloon, Station wagon, Van: tyres of

size 215/45 R 17 are only approved

as winter tyres if the vehicle was

equipped with 18-inch wheels in the

factory.
Winter tyres may only be used on the

Astra OPC on special alloy wheels

approved by Opel.
Run-flat winter tyres may only be

used on factory approved alloy

wheels.
In accordance with country-specific

regulations, affix the speed sticker in

the driver's field of view.

Run-flat tyres

Run-flat tyres have reinforced, self-

supporting sidewalls, which ensure

that the tyres always have a certain

amount of driveability, even when

there is no pressure.
Run-flat tyres are only permitted on

vehicles with electronic stability

program and tyre pressure monitoring

system or deflation detection system.

Caution

Check tyre pressures regularly

even if run-flat tyres are fitted.

Depending on tyre manufacturer, run-

flat tyres can be identified from

a marking on the tyre wall. E.g.
ROF = RunonFlat for Goodyear or
SSR = Self Supporting Runflat Tyre

for Continental.

Use of run-flat tyres is only permitted

in combination with factory approved

alloy wheels.

1)

Astra OPC: Permitted as winter tyres without tyre chains.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

192

Vehicle care

Do not use a tyre repair kit.
The ECO tyre pressure must not be

used.
Run-flat tyres must not be combined

with standard tyres.
If converting to standard tyres, note

that the vehicle is not equipped with

a spare wheel or tyre repair kit.

Driving with a damaged tyre

A loss in tyre pressure is indicated by

the tyre pressure monitoring system

or the deflation detection system.
If a tyre has no pressure, continued

driving is possible

■ at a speed of max. 80 km/h
■ up to a distance of 80 km

Warning

The vehicle will be more difficult to

steer and handle. Braking

distance will be longer.
Adapt driving style and speed to

the changed conditions.

Tyre designations

E.g. 195/65 R 15 91 H
195 = Tyre width, mm

65 = Cross-section ratio (tyre

height to tyre width), %

R

= Belt type: Radial

RF = Type: RunFlat

15 = Wheel diameter, inches

91 = Load index e.g. 91 is

equivalent to 618 kg

H

= 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

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.

Remove the valve cap key from the

fuel filler flap and use it to unscrew the

valve cap.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vehicle care

193

On vehicles with tyre pressure

monitoring system, screw the adapter

to the valve.
Tyre pressure 3 244 and on the label

on the inside of the fuel filler flap.
The tyre pressure data refer to cold

tyres. It applies to summer and winter

tyres.
Always inflate the spare wheel to the

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

achieve the smallest amount of fuel

consumption possible. It must not be

used with run-flat tyres.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair

safety, vehicle handling, comfort and

fuel economy and will increase tyre

wear.

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.

Tyre pressure monitoring

system

The tyre pressure monitoring system

continually checks the pressure of all

four wheels when vehicle speed

exceeds a certain limit.
All wheels must be equipped with

pressure sensors and the tyres must

have the prescribed pressure.

Otherwise, the tyre pressure will be

monitored by the deflation detection

system 3 194.
The current tyre pressures can be

shown in the Info-Display 3 116.
Vehicle messages, tyre pressure

3

 111.

Control indicator w 3 99.
If a complete set of wheels without

sensors is mounted (e.g. four winter

tyres), no error message will be

displayed. The tyre pressure

monitoring system is not operational.

Retrofitting of sensors is possible.

The use of commercially available

liquid tyre repair kits can impair the

function of the system. Factory

approved systems can be used.
External high-power radio equipment

could disrupt the tyre pressure

monitoring system.

System initialisation

After a wheel change, the system

must be initialised: inflate the tyres to

the prescribed pressure, switch on

the ignition, press and hold the DDS

button for approx. 4 seconds, control

indicator w flashes three times.
