Allowed summer tires

Hello,

I have a car that was imported from Germany and in my official Swiss registration paper, I have no wheels specification.

I have to carry with it the original COC (EG. Ubereinstimmungbescheinigung) where I have several wheels/tires specifications.

In this COC paper I have some tires specifications, but I also have some specific brands and models of tires.

My question is: am I allowed to fit any tires that fit the wheels' specification, or am I tied with the specific tires models that are in this paper?

You can find a the relavant information in the attachments.
Tomorrow I'll go to the Strassenverkehrsamt to ask for information.

thanks!

Re: Allowed summer tires

due to the topspeed of your car(275km/h), you will be limited to the rim/tyre
combination find at pos.50 of your attachment

Hi blackbird! thanks for the answer. Rims are not an issue, I have the original ones. I am most concerned about the tires, since the list in pos.50 was done a while ago, new tires where releases since then.
For instance I wanted to mount Bridgestone S001, which are more recent, and better overall, than the listed RE050a, which can still be found but are not the latest model.

Could I mount the latest model? Would it be difficult to get autorization to mount them or it's just a matter to go to the Strassenverkehrsamt and have it written down somewhere?

Re: Allowed summer tires

Ask the local dealer , what is allowed and what requires a permit .
Or you can ask the manufactory of the car, they will provide you with the latest
releases and will help you, modify your registration, if neccescary.
Keep in mind to have the registration matching the rim/Tyre combination, otherwise you you will pay hefty fines .
And it must a certificate for switzerland , not the EU !!

Re: Allowed summer tires

As long as it is speed rated and meant for the vehicle (size).
Noone is ever going to say anything I have driven imports on whatever tire I choose as well as Swiss cars with whichever tire of my choosing
with 250kph rating
Even when I imported my old bmw it had tires that did not fit the speed rating and they passed me through the import control. As long as I promised to get new tires when these were worn out....(had a good season left on them)

As have I fitted my vehicles with tires put on in Belgium, Holland, and Switzerland. Never been an issue

Re: Allowed summer tires

Officially you are will be tied to the COC tyres - although why it lists brands is beyond me. You could fit whatever you want but if you have a problem (IE an accident) the insurance might get a little difficult. I am wondering how many BMWs are on non-RFT tyres? How many Porsches run non-N tyres?

Your best bet, as you are already doing, is get it clarified by the STVA. What tyres do you want to fit?

Re: Allowed summer tires

Tyre prices vary a lot, maybe check these prices.

You can also choose a local garage to fit them, and to receive them from the courier.

Obviously not!!

The OP knows what tyres he should fit - and knows what tyres he wants to fit. Purchasing hasn't even come into the equation yet!

Re: Allowed summer tires

Now, I understood the OP had been to the Strassenvekehrsamt and they told him that Bridgston S001 were OK.

But re-reading the thread more carefully I see it was you who questioned him, and his answer was S0001 , not his answer after the visit to the traffic office. I stand corrected.

And why then is the price quotation off topic?

Re: Allowed summer tires

I've been to the stva and they told me that I can fit any tires that fit the speed specs, but I'm not limited only on those specific models.

Re: Allowed summer tires

Thought I had the same problem with after market rims. Porsche's on-board computer monitoring goes up to 20". I have 21" installed and when I went to my local Strassenverkehrsamt for the check-up. Boy did they take it through rigorous testing. They were measuring anything and everything that is measurable around the rims i.e. size of nuts and bolts, size of holes etc. Eventually I was given the all clear and I drove out of there like a bat out of hell as soon as I got my papers. Didn't want to give them a moment to reconsider. I now use Pirelli or Michelin depending on what is readily available at good prices.
