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.
All tyre sizes are permitted as winter

tyres 3 295.
In accordance with country-specific

regulations, affix the speed sticker in

the driver's field of view.

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 3 289.

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 3 295.
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

tyres.

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

wear.
Tyre pressures differ depending on

various options.
For the correct tyre pressure value,

follow the procedure below:

● Identify the engine identifier

code. Engine data 3 287.

● Identify the respective tyre.
● The tyre pressure tables show all

possible tyre combinations

3

 295.

For the tyres approved for your

vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of

Conformity provided with your vehicle

or other national registration

documents.
The driver is responsible for correct

adjustment of tyre pressure.

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

Vehicle care

257

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.

If the tyre pressure must be reduced

or increased on a vehicle with tyre

pressure monitoring system, switch

off ignition.

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 pressure monitoring

system

The tyre pressure monitoring system

checks the pressure of all four tyres

once a minute when vehicle speed

exceeds a certain limit.

Caution

Tyre pressure monitoring system

warns only about low tyre pressure

condition and does not replace

regular tyre maintenance by the

driver.

All wheels must be equipped with

pressure sensors and the tyres must

have the prescribed pressure.

Note

In countries where the tyre pressure

monitoring system is legally

required, the use of wheels without

pressure sensors will invalidate the

vehicle operating permit.

The current tyre pressures can be

shown in the Driver Information

Centre.

the Vehicle Information Menu ? in

the Driver Information Centre 3 115.

Vehicle care

Uplevel display:

Select the Tyre pressure page under

the Info Menu in the Driver

Information Centre 3 115.
System status and pressure warnings

are displayed by a message

indicating the corresponding tyre in

the Driver Information Centre.
The system considers the tyre

temperature for the warnings.
Temperature dependency 3 256.

A detected low tyre pressure

condition is indicated by the control

indicator w 3 112.
If w illuminates, stop as soon as

possible and inflate the tyres as

recommended 3 295.
If w flashes for 60-90 seconds then

illuminates continuously, there is a

fault in the system. Consult a

workshop.
After inflating, some driving may be

required to update the tyre pressure

values in the Driver Information

Centre. During this time w may

illuminate.
If w illuminates at lower temperatures

and extinguishes after driving, this

could be an indicator for approaching

a low tyre pressure condition. Check

tyre pressure.
Vehicle messages 3 123.

If the tyre pressure must be reduced

or increased, switch off ignition.
Only mount wheels with pressure

sensors, otherwise the tyre pressure

will not be displayed and w

illuminates continuously.
A spare wheel or temporary spare

wheel is not equipped with pressure

sensors. The tyre pressure

monitoring system is not operational

for these tyres. Control indicator w

illuminates. For the further three

tyres, the system remains

operational.
The use of commercially-available

liquid tyre repair kits can impair the

function of the system. Factory-

approved repair kits can be used.
Operating electronic devices or being

close to facilities using similar wave

frequencies could disrupt the tyre

pressure monitoring system.
Each time the tyres are replaced, tyre

pressure monitoring system sensors

must be dismounted and serviced.

For the screwed sensor, replace

valve core and sealing ring. For the

clipped sensor, replace complete

valve stem.

Tyre pressure sensor matching

process

Each tyre pressure sensor has a

unique identification code. The

identification code must be matched

to a new wheel position after rotating

the wheels or exchanging the

complete wheel set and if one or more

tyre pressure sensors were replaced.

The tyre pressure sensor matching

process should also be performed

after replacing a spare wheel with a

road wheel containing the tyre

pressure sensor.
The malfunction light w and the

warning message or code should go

off at the next ignition cycle. The

sensors are matched to the wheel

positions, using a relearn tool, in the

following order: left side front wheel,

right side front wheel, right side rear

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

Vehicle care

wheel and left side rear wheel. The

turn signal light at the current active

position is illuminated until sensor is

matched.
Consult a workshop for service. There

are two minutes to match the first

wheel position, and five minutes

overall to match all four wheel

positions. If it takes longer, the

matching process stops and must be

restarted.
The tyre pressure sensor matching

process is:

1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition on.
3. On vehicles with automatic

transmission: set the selector

lever to P.
On vehicles with manual

transmission: select neutral.

wheel, and repeat the procedure

in step 8.

10. Proceed to the right side rear

wheel, and repeat the procedure

in step 8.

11. Proceed to the left side rear

wheel, and repeat the procedure

in step 8. The horn sounds twice

to indicate that the sensor

identification code has been

matched to the left side rear

wheel, and the tyre pressure

sensor matching process is no

longer active.

12. Turn off the ignition.

13. Set all four tyres to the

recommended air pressure level

as indicated on the tyre pressure

information label.

14. Ensure the tyre loading status is

set according to the selected

pressure 3 115.

Tread depth

Check tread depth at regular

intervals.
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

sidewall.
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 six years.
