Spare wheel  - Changing a wheel - Wheels and tires - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

The following instructions only apply if you have purchased an accessory temporary spare wheel for your vehicle. If there is no temporary spare wheel in your vehicle, please see 284 for instructions on using the tire sealing system.

The accessory temporary spare wheel is provided in a bag that must be strapped in place in the trunk while the vehicle is being driven. Complete instructions are provided in an information booklet found inside the bag.

The spare wheel is only intended for temporary use. Replace it with a normal wheel as soon as possible. The car's handling may be altered by the use of the spare wheel. The correct tire pressure for the spare wheel is stated in the tire pressure table on page 275.

WARNING 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.

CAUTION

The vehicle must never be driven with more than one temporary spare wheel.
