Audi A3  Self-help  Mobility  Changing a wheel
A directional tread pattern can be identified by arrows on the sidewall that point in the direction of rotation. Always note the direction of rotation indicated when mounting the wheel. This is important so that these tyres can give maximum grip and avoid excessive noise, tread wear and aquaplaning.
If you ever have a puncture and need to fit the spare wheel* in the wrong direction, please drive with extra care because the tyre will not give optimum performance in this situation. Bear this in mind particularly when driving on wet roads.
To benefit from the advantages of tyres with this type of tread pattern, the defective tyre should be replaced and refitted as soon as possible so that all tyres again rotate in the correct direction.
