Volkswagen Touran Service Manual: Winter Tires with Speed Symbol V
|Table. Refer to
|The tire industry delivers winter tires with V-rating also.
These tires can be applied up to the maximum permissible speed vmax
= 240 km/h (149.13 mph) only under certain conditions.
|Vehicles that require V-tires according to vehicle
registration, can be driven with V winter tires without
limitations up to speed rating "v"max
= 240 km/h (149.13 mph).
|Vehicles with W-, Y- or ZR-tires:
|Vehicles that require W, Y, or ZR tires according to vehicle
registration, cannot be driven with V winter tires up to "v"max
= 240 km/h (149.13 mph) under certain conditions.
|V summer tires and V winter tires without special
designation guarantee 100% of the load capacity indicated by
their Load Index ("LI") only up to a speed of 210 km/h (130.48
|Speeds above 210 km/h (130.48 mph) are only possible if the
maximum load capacity of the tire is not exceeded. The load
capacity of the tire decreases as the speed increases.
|The maximum permissible axle load and the attainable maximum
speed of certain vehicles are so high that the load capacity of
V tires is not sufficient for speeds above 240 km/h (149.13
|Example: Tires 205/55 R 16 91V
|The Load index (LI) 91 for this tire indicates a load
capacity of 615 kg (1355.84 lbs) per tire up to 210 km/h (130.48
|At 240 km/h (130.48 mph), the load capacity of this tire is
reduced to only 560 kg (1234.58 lbs). For this reason, the axle
load can only be maximum 1,120 kg (2469.17 lbs).
|The vehicle has an additional axle load of 1,150 kg (2535.31
lbs) and an attainable maximum speed of 232 km/h (144.15 mph).
This vehicle can be driven with V winter tires up to a speed of
230 km/h (142.91 mph).

|Permission Stipulations in Germany

highest speed attainable by the vehicle lies above the highest
speed of winter tires specified by the speed rating.
|In this case, a warning sign in the view of the driver must
be applied with the following content:
permissible speed ...km/h
Rolling Resistance Tires
|Tire deformation when rolling causes the vehicle to loose
energy that makes the rolling resistance noticeable.
|Deformation is significantly lowered on rolling resistance
tires due to new construction and low-wear surface mixtures.
|Tires approved by manufacturer are rolling resistant and
conform to all safety and customer relevant properties.
|The following chapter contains the recommended tire
manufacturers. Refer to
→ Wheel and Tire Guide; Rep. Gr.44.
