Wheels and tires

Tire condition / tire pressure

Tires are safety-relevant items that are only capable of meeting the requirements aplicable if they are run at the correct tire pressure and with sufficient tread depth.

The tire pressures indicated are minimum pressures. The tires must never be run at lower pressures since this influences roadholding in a negative manner and may lead to severe tire damage.

Valve caps protect the valve against dust and dirt and therefore help prevent leaks. Always screw on caps tightly and replace missing caps.

For safety reasons, do not limit tire checks to checking the tire pressure but also check for sufficient tread depth, ingress of foreign matter, pinholes, cuts, tears and bulges in the sidewalls (cord break)!

Tire and wheel survey / tire specification identification mark

The tire and wheel survey for summer and winter tires is to be found in the corresponding Technical Information (Tl) Group 4.

When replacing summer tires, pay attention to the tire specification character. The specification character serves to distinguish summer tires specifically approved by Porsche from other versions of the same tire type and size. The approved tires are also listed in the corresponding Technical Information. NO, N1 and N2 tires must not be mixed when mounted on one single vehicle, even if they are of the same make.
