Skoda Car Tyres
etyres supply and fit a comprehensive range of Skoda tyres and our prices are considerably less expensive than the leading tyre depots and main dealerships.
We also provide a free mobile fitting service which means you can choose to have your tyres fitted at home or at your place of work, so you don't have to waste time in a tyre depot or garage.
Here are some examples of tyres fitted to popular Skoda models – but we advise you to check the size of the tyres currently fitted to your vehicle before placing your order. You can find this information on the sidewall of your existing tyre. Alternatively you can call our National Sales Team on 0800 028 9000 for help and impartial advice or to place an order.
FabiaThe Fabia is quite big by supermini standards, but it’s dinky enough to excel in the city, and the controls are light. Skoda has shod the Fabia in a range of different tyres including the Pirelli P600s, Duplop SP Sport 01s, Bridgestone Turanza and Firestone F590s. The Uniroyal RainExpert is recommended as a sound replacement tyre offering protection against aquaplaning and reduced braking distances, together with the Michelin Energy Saver.
OctaviaA supple and comfortable ride means the Octavia handles well, too, with plenty of grip. The Dunlop SP Sport 01 is recommended for good grip, braking and low noise. The Michelin Pilot Exalto, which offers excellent grip and steering response when cornering is another tyre option together with the high performance rain tyre Uniroyal Rainsport 2.
SuperbThe Superb is stable offering a comfortable ride, yet despite its size it also manages agile cornering. There are a number of suitable replacement tyre optionsfor the Superb, including the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx which delivers more contact with the road surface, delivering better response and stability as well as improved cornering; the Yokohama A539, which balances performance and comfort and the ContiSportContact 3 for a smooth quiet drive.
Our National Sales Team can provide impartial advice about a number of suitable replacement tyres for your Skoda depending on your model and driving style. Call now on 0800 028 9000.
Background Information on SkodaIn 1990, Skoda entered a joint venture with Volkswagen and the brand was reborn. Skoda became the fourth brand in the Volkswagen group, alongside Volkswagen, Audi and Seat.
Since then, Skoda has gone from strength to strength, especially in the UK market with owners consistently ranking the brand at or near the top of the J.D. Power customer satisfaction survey.
Changing Skoda TyresChanging Skoda Car Tyres should require 3 primary choices:
- The overall quality of the tyre (durability, wear, ratings, cost) desired for the Skoda
- The speed rating that the Skoda Tyres should have depending upon the driver's average and occasional "fastest-driven" speed
- Deciding if local and/or regional weather patterns merit keeping two sets of tyres for dry vs. wet road conditions
Further, if an owner wishes to put tyres on different sized wheels for the Skoda, a careful decision about what size tyres will be valid for that Skoda is required. If, for example, a larger wheel size is desired, then the profile (height) and/or the width must be reduced to avoid damaging the drive train. A 195/65/15 tyre for that Skoda, for instance, on a 17" rim, could legitimately become a 165/65 (narrower) or a 195/55 (shorter) but could not stay a 195/65 as before. A handy calculator for changing tyre sizes can be found here.
All tyres for any Skoda vehicle should be fitted using the proper torque, according to the manufacturer's specifications. Torque is the amount of pressure used to tighten the wheel nuts. For tyres that are fitted to the following Skoda models, the torque settings are listed. Also, the recommended air pressure to put into tyres for Skoda models is listed. Further, the alternate tyre size for Skoda models.
