Hello, I didn't want alloy wheels on my skoda fabia 1.6td when i purchased it new in 2010, i choose instead to have steel wheels and the dealer put on 14in steel. i now would like to know do they contribute to a lower mpg. The current tyres are over 2 years old and have done 20000k. Any advice to help me make a decision? Thank you.
Hi,Heaphyfamily,If you want to lower down the MPG,why not think about lower down the suspension system.Such as change to alloy wheel
Investigating swapping alloy wheels on2009 1.4tdi Fabia as the tyres we are recommended are so readily damagedNot as easy as it should be to get clarification on alternatives eg R14 or 15,what to take into account etc ???

Hi,Shishir,it can not fit for your car.Try 195/55/15.
My Fabian reaction has no spare wheel can anybody tell me what size I need to buy
Hi, Francis mccue,Can you show me your car year?
I have a 2012 1.2TSi Monte Carlo with 205x40x17 OEM alloy wheels.
Can I replace these with 195x55x15 alloy wheels?
Hi,Chris,Yes,In fact 195/55/15 is the stock tire size.And you also need to change to 15'' rims.
Can I fit 16" vRS alloys to my 1.2 Fabia HTP Estate, the website seems to suggest this is possible but the text is not in bold..? Is there a downside to fitting these - I guess it might raise the ride height a fraction..? I guess I'd also need a fifth wheel as a spare..? D
P.S. it's a 2006 model. D.
I want to change the tyre of my fabia 1.4 Ambient model. Current tyre size is 185/60, 14R. Is it advisable to change the tyre with other size to 175/70, R14 and if changed it will be any problem to my car.
Hi just a little question as my daughter has recently purchased a skoda fabia 2003 model can anyone tell me if the alloy wheels size 165/70 14 are standard
Hi, Phillip! OE rim size for Skoda Fabia 2003 is 5Jx14 ET35-38mm with PCD 5x100 and 57.1mm hub bore.
I have 61 plate Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo Edition car - current tyre size are 205/40/17's on the for but 205/40/17 XL's on the back. I am locking to replace the front 2 tyres. Am l best getting XL's for the front so they are all the same or stick with what they are already. Thanks
Hi, Alison! XL mean extra load, the sidewall of this tires inforced with additional cord. It's not so principal for passenger car, you can use any 205/40/17 tires front or rear with ~83-85 load index and higher with H speed index (210km/h) and higher. You're welcome.
Thanks. Information very helpful.
I have a 2006 Fabia 1.2 12v with worn 165/70R14 tyres on 5Jx14 wheels. Can I safely replace them with 185/60R14 tyres on 6Jx14 wheels? I ask because I have access to a set of these off another Fabia which has new tyres.
Hi...I own a SL14 Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo, it has 17inch Black Alloy wheels on it at present which don't fit my purpose, I would like to put steel wheels on it to allow for a bigger tyre size as I drive a lot on one track roads....could you tell me if the current spare 15inch that is in the boot is the correct dimensions that could be used as permanent fixture as I am looking to replace all four wheels with Steel wheels....looking for advice on this please?
Hi i own a 64 fabia black edition with 205/40/17 tyres with no spare. What steel wheel size andtyre ally can I use as a spare?
I have a 2008 Skoda Fabia with 195/55/R15 tyres fitted on steel rims and want to upgrade to alloys. What alloy wheels from other car makes are interchangeable ?
I've just had slightly used 195/65/R15 tyres put on my 2009 Fabia estate TDi 1.4 3 pot instead of 195/55/R15 which were on from new. Immediately on driving off, the accellerator kept sticking on, giving no engine braking.
Nobody knows why, and the garage (and Skoda) say there's no problem fitting this size on the front axle, but it can't be a coincidence. Braking reduces the revs and occasionally the revs slowly reduce.
Hi,Mike Reed,195/65/15 is not compatible with 195/55/15,You can also confirm by tire calculator in home page.I think that's the reason for your condition.
Thank you, John, for your advice, and I'm getting a strong impression this is the problem causing my drastic change in accelerator habit.
Strange that even Skoda don't seem to offer any advice except to have an expensive diagnostic check. Other (garage) advice is to put the 195/65/15 on the rear wheels to 'balance' things and (preferred), to switch my original 55s on the back with the 65s, or simply get a new set of 55s and abandon the 65s.
Fair options, but why doesn't any supposedly informed and trained motor mechanics know or even suggest ?
...not sure on what’s the best / biggest / widest / maximum tires or rims will fit your car?
Write about the tires you are currently driving on.
