RIMS AND TYRES

High resistance printed steel rims of alloy rims.

Tubeless tyres with radial carcass.

The homologated tyres are listed in the log book.

IMPORTANT

In the event of discrepancies between the information provided in this Owner Handbook and the Log Book, consider the specifications shown in the Log Book only.

To ensure safety of the vehicle in movement, it must be fitted with tyres of specified size and of the same make and type on all wheels.

Do not use inner tubes with tubeless tyres.

Do not fasten alloy wheels with the steel wheel bolts and vice versa. For details on the compatibility between rims and bolts, see If a tyre is punctured in section In an emergency

SPARE WHEEL

Pressed steel rim.

Tubeless tyre.

SNOW CHAINS

Only use low profile chains, see Snow chains.

WHEEL GEOMETRY

Front wheel toe-in measured from rim to rim: 0 1 mm.

The values refer to the vehicle in running order.

The following are the necessary indications to understand the meaning of the markings on the rim.

51/2 = rim width in inches (1)

51/2 = rim width in inches (1)

J = rim drop centre outline (side projection where the tyre bead rests) (2)

15 = rim nominal diameter in inches (corresponds to diameter of the tyre to be mounted) (3 = Ø)

H2 = hump shape and number (relief on the circumference holding the tubeless tyre bead on the rim)

(*) Tyres with load and speed index equal to or higher than the specified values

(*) Tyres with load and speed index equal to or higher than the specified values are admitted

(**) When replacing tyres, you are however recommended to adopt tyres with load and speed ratings equal to or higher than those of the factory-fitted tyres.

COLD INFLATION PRESSURES (bar)

With warm tyres the pressure should be +0.3 bar in relation to the prescribed

With warm tyres the pressure should be +0.3 bar in relation to the prescribed value. Check again the correct pressure when the tyres are cold.

(*) Up to 3 people + 50 kg.
