Full-Size Spare Hazards
The wheel size, tire size and tire quality of the spare wheel and normal wheel can differ. If a spare wheel is used that differs from the normal tires used, this may impair the driving behavior.

  • The spare wheel must be used only over short distances in cases of emergency.
    For safety reasons, replace the tires before the wear indicators appear (webs in the tire grooves, 1/16 in. (1.6 mm) high).
  • Never deactivate the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system.
  • If the tire on the spare wheel is more than 4 years old, the spare wheel should be used only in the event of a flat tire.
  • Avoid hard acceleration and high cornering speeds.
    The maximum permitted speed is 50 mph (80 km/h) if the fitted spare wheel differs from the other three wheels on the vehicle. This maximum speed must not be exceeded because of altered driving characteristics and for reasons of wear.
