Seat Ibiza tyres
The Seat Ibiza was originally launched in the UK in 1985. For many years it had a languid reputation as a cheaper but unremarkable and less-desirable version of the VW Polo. That said, things have changed and recent editions have won praise for their styling, performance and all-round comfort.
Just as there’s probably no such thing as the average Ibiza driver, there’s probably no such thing as the average Ibiza tyre, either. However, etyres supplies and fits a range of tyres to fit all different incarnations of the Seat Ibiza. These are available to suit all budgets and driving styles.
The Ibiza is currently in its fourth generation. It comes with a range of engines and specifications, all of which provide high levels of handling and comfort. Popular replacement tyres with etyres include the Bridgestone Turanza. This is a middle-market tyre whose design complements the current models’ all-round performance. It also offers a comfortable ride and a long tyre life.
The Nexen NBlue is another popular replacement tyre for the Ibiza. This features similar specifications. Many drivers of sportier Ibiza models, including the high-performance Ibiza Cupra, have chosen to fit Dunlop’s BluResponse tyres. These come labelled with good ratings for both wet grip and fuel economy, making them worth considering.
Two particular aspects of the Ibiza’s performance which have been noted in independent tests and customer reviews. The first of these is an above-average amount of wind noise at higher speeds. The second is the amount of tyre noise on cars fitted with low-profile alloy wheels. To this end, it’s worth comparing the noise emission ratings on the labels of different replacement tyre options for the Ibiza. These labels can be seen on each different tyre and also on etyres’ website. They will help you choose the right tyre to suit your car and driving style.
