Wheels and Tires
Fig. 157 Tire pressure label

The correct tire pressure for tires installed at the factory is listed on a label. The label is located on the B-pillar (driver's side) fig. 156, fig. 157.

Use the tire pressure specified for a normal vehicle load when the vehicle is partially loaded table. If driving the vehicle when fully loaded, you must increase the tire pressure to the maximum specified pressure.

Checking and correcting tire pressure

  • Check the tire pressure at least once per month and also check it before every long drive.
  • Always check the tire pressure when the tires are cold. Do not reduce the pressure if it increases when the tires are warm.
  • Refer to the sticker fig. 157 for the correct tire pressure.
  • Correct the tire pressure if necessary.
  • Save the changed tire pressure.
  • Check the pressure in the spare tire (compact spare tire). Always maintain the maximum temperature that is specified for the tire.


Always adapt the tire pressure to your driving style and the vehicle load.

  • Overloading can lead to loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of an accident. Read and follow the important safety precautions.
  • The tire must flex more if the tire pressure is too low or if the vehicle speed or load are too high. This heats the tire up too much. This increases the risk of an accident because it can cause the tire to burst and result in loss of vehicle control.
  • Incorrect tire pressure increases tire wear and has a negative effect on driving and braking behavior, which increases the risk of an accident.


Replace lost valve caps to reduce the risk of damage to the tire valves.

For the sake of the environment

Tire pressure that is too low increases fuel consumption.

Tire pressure table

Please note that the information contained in the following table was correct at the time of printing, and the information is subject to change. If there are any differences, you should always follow the tire pressure sticker fig. 156.

Make sure that the tire designation on your tire matches the designation on the tire pressure label and the tire pressure table.

The following table lists recommended tire pressures in cold tires according to the load and the size of the tires installed.

Please note the important safety precautions regarding tire pressure and load limits.


     Tires and vehicle load limits

    There are limits to the amount of load or weight that any vehicle and any tire can carry. A vehicle that is overloaded will not handle well and is more difficult to stop. Overloading can not only lea
