Hi,
According to the manual, the recommended tyres for VW Sharan is 98 H (750kg) for the 225/50R17 tyres.
The rear gross axle weight rating is 1,310kg
The tyres supplied by the used car dealer is 94V (670kg).
It is 80kg load rating less than the recommended.
If there any risk?
Should I change the tyres to the recommended load rating?
Thanks

Providing both tyres are of the same load rating on a common axle it would fall within the WOF requirements so shouldn't require replacement.

Hi Ian,
The 2 front tyres are 98 and the 2 rear tyres are 94.
Is there any risk as the factory specification is 98 load rating.
Thanks
