Temporary Spare  - Wheels and tires - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60Spare tire

The spare tire in your vehicle is called a "Temporary Spare".

Recommended tire pressure (see the placard on the B-pillar or on the fuel filler door) should be maintained irrespective of which position on the vehicle the temporary spare tire is used on.

In the event of damage to this tire, a new one can be purchased from your Volvo retailer.

WARNING
Current legislation prohibits the use of the "Temporary Spare" tire other than as a temporary replacement for a punctured tire. It must be replaced as soon as possible by a standard tire. Road holding and handling may be affected with the "Temporary Spare" in use. Do not exceed 50 mph (80 km/h).

CAUTION The vehicle must not be driven with wheels of different dimensions or with a spare tire other than the one that came with the vehicle.
The use of different size wheels can seriously damage your car's transmission.
