If it is desired to be equipped with tyres/rims not mentioned in the type-approval documents, this entails the re-approval of the vehicle. This operation involves the mandatory performance tests of the braking system and the calibration of the speedometer and, if the Vehicle and Component Testing Laboratory decides that they are required, the tests on the stability of the vehicle and the measurement of its sound level. (Re)approval shall be granted only if the results of the tests and verifications carried out show that the applicable technical conditions have been met.
What should I do to mention in the CIV the dimensions of some optional tyres?

If the checks confirm that the desired size is mentioned in the type-approval documentation, the desired size in the CIV shall be added under the heading “Mentions”
