same make, size, type and profile
should be used on a single axle.
They must: either have a load ca-

equal to those of the original
tyres, or conform to those recom-
mended by an authorised dealer.
Failure to heed these instructions
could endanger your safety and

PUNCTURE, EMERGENCY SPARE WHEEL (2/2)
If the emergency spare wheel has been stored for several years, have it checked by your Dealer to ensure that it is
safe to use.
Vehicle fitted with an emergency spare wheel that differs from the other wheels:
- Never fit more than one emergency spare wheel to the same vehicle.
- As the punctured wheel is wider than the emergency spare wheel, the vehicle’s ground clearance is reduced.
- Replace the emergency spare wheel as soon as possible with a wheel identical to the original one.
- If wheel bolts are supplied with the emergency spare wheel, it is imperative that they are used and that they are used for the
emergency spare wheel only: refer to the label affixed to the emergency spare wheel.
- When this is fitted to the vehicle, which must only be a temporary measure, the driving speed must not exceed the speed
indicated on the label on the wheel.
- Fitting an emergency spare wheel may alter the way the vehicle usually runs. Avoid sudden acceleration or deceleration and
reduce your speed when cornering.
- If you need to use snow chains, fit the emergency spare wheel to the rear axle and check the tyre pressure.
- The warning light
on the instrument panel flashes for several seconds, then stays on.
