Volvo XC90: Wheels and tires / Spare wheel

(Not available on all models.)

The spare wheel is a Temporary Spare and can be used to temporarily replace a punctured tire on one of the vehicle's regular wheels.

The spare wheel is only intended for temporary use. Replace it with a normal wheel as soon as possible.

The driving characteristics of the vehicle change and ground clearance reduces when the spare wheel is used. Do not wash the vehicle in an automatic car wash while using the Temporary Spare.

The recommended tire pressure must be maintained regardless of at which position the temporary spare wheel is used on the vehicle. If the spare wheel is damaged, a replacement can be purchased from a Volvo retailer.

WARNING

Current legislation prohibits the use of the "Temporary Spare" wheel other than as a temporary replacement for a punctured tire. It must be replaced as soon as possible by a standard tire. Roadholding and handling may be affected with the "Temporary Spare" wheel in use.

WARNING

  • Never drive faster than 80 km/h (50 mph) with a spare tire mounted on the vehicle.
  • The vehicle must never be driven with more than one "Temporary Spare" wheel mounted.
  • Driving with a spare wheel may alter the driving characteristics of the vehicle. Replace the spare wheel with a normal wheel as soon as possible.
  • The spare wheel is smaller than the normal wheel, which affects the vehicle's ground clearance. Watch for high curbs and do not wash the vehicle in an automatic car wash when a spare wheel is mounted.
  • Follow the manufacturer's recommended tire inflation pressure for the spare wheel.
  • On all-wheel drive vehicles, the drive on the rear axle can be disconnected.
  • If the spare wheel is mounted on the front axle, snow chains must not be used.
  • The spare wheel must not be repaired.

CAUTION

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