Skoda Octavia tyres
Octavia owners are a happy breed. This Skoda in particular scores consistently well in industry and consumer tests alike. It offers practicality, quality and performance; and like most Skoda models it does so at lower prices than many of its rivals. It isn’t the most stylish car in its class but it’s just about the cheapest to run. Choosing the right replacement tyre will complement the Octavia’s balance of performance and economy perfectly.
In common with the VW Golf, with which it shares many components, the Octavia is suited by many different tyre brands. Therefore considering your driving style and budget will help narrow the choice of replacement tyres available.
Preserving the car’s economy will be a priority for the many drivers who use the Octavia for large annual mileages. The Nexen NBlue, a mid-market but eco-friendly tyre, is factory-fitted to many Octavia models. It’s therefore among the most popular tyres for this car with etyres customers. Combined with the ‘stop-start’ engine technology fitted to all new Octavias, this range helps achieve the maximum possible mpg.
Goodyear’s EfficientGrip range is a strong-selling alternative. This, too has a high rating for fuel economy yet also scores strongly for its wet grip properties. This means that it’s a popular choice for the many Octavia models used as family cars.
etyres supplies and fits a wide range of tyres which will tick all the boxes for sportier Octavia models and more demanding drivers. These tyres will support higher-performance engines and punchier driving styles. Two examples are Dunlop’s BluResponse and Sportmaxx ranges, which both sell well for the Octavia. A similar premium brand option to consider is the Continental SportContact tyre.
Popular ‘all-round’ options for everyday use include the Bridgestone Turanza and Michelin Energy Saver ranges. Falken and Kumho are two more brands whose tyres are popular for many Skoda models and the Octavia in particular.
