pg. 138 Temporary Spare
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 car 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.
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 m.p.h.
(80 km/h). Do not drive farther than 50 miles (80 km) on a temporary spare tire.
The car must not be driven with wheels of different dimensions or with a spare tire other than the one
that came with the car. The use of different size wheels can seriously damage your car's transmission.
