Spare wheel


The car is completed with a spare wheel with the standard tyre. Some export updatings are equipped not with the standard tyre, and a compact emergency wheel.

The spare wheel is located in a niche under a flooring of a luggage compartment and fastens a special bolt.

At use of a spare wheel with the tyre having unidirectional drawing of a protector, keep in mind the following:

The direction of rotation of a wheel is defined by marks in the form of an arrow put on sidewall of a tyre cover.

Wheel installation back to the direction of its normal rotation defined by drawing of a protector, probably it is only temporary, as the tyre in this case cannot realise to the full optimum road performance inherent in it, such as absence of propensity to hydroplaning, noiselessness and wear resistance. Especially we recommend to remember it in crude weather, соразмеряя speed of movement with a condition проезжей parts.

For full use of advantages of the tyre with unidirectional drawing of a protector as soon as possible replace the damaged tyre or remount a spare wheel for a correct direction of rotation.

At a car complete set a compact emergency wheel remember the following:

The emergency wheel is intended only for short-term incidental application. Therefore at the first possibility replace it with a wheel with the standard tyre.

After installation of an emergency wheel as soon as possible check up pressure of air in it. Pressure should make 4.2 bar.

Do not exceed speed of 80 km/h. Avoid dispersals at completely squeezed out pedal of an accelerator, sharp braking and recklessness on turns!

The emergency wheel is specially designed under concrete model of the car. Therefore it cannot be used on cars of other models. It is impossible to use as well emergency wheels of cars of other marks.

Application of chains противоскольжения on a compact emergency wheel is for technical reasons inadmissible.

Therefore in need of movement with chains противоскольжения remove and put back a compact emergency wheel. In turn removed back wheel establish to the place of a forward compact emergency wheel. Chains противоскольжения are recommended to be put on before wheel installation. After that as soon as possible finish to norm pressure of air in tyres.

On a disk of an emergency wheel putting on of standard or winter tyres is not supposed.

Never go more than with one emergency wheel.
