Nanu, you will have to scout tyre dealers in Pune because I doubt there are many Skoda vRS' in town who prefer to change the stock alloys. What is the cost of a new set of wheels?

Skoda dealers charge Rs.12,000 per wheel. So a set of 4 is Rs.48,000/-!

and you can get 2 SE P1i's as well for that money. The list goes on. But the quality of the wheel is top class. Keep looking nanu, there are quite a few floating around in the market. It's a great deal used.

You can contact Mr. Hanush Patel at 9820430757. He's the Yoko distributor & he'll direct you to a dealer in your area.

N. Mehta Tyres, near Swargate has Yokos. You can give my reference; I spoke to him about Yokos just 5 mins back.

N. Mehta is located on Tilak Road, diagonally opp. Mahratta Chamber of Commerce, just before the Petrol Pump at the Swargate crossroad.

Please help me decide which ones to get...

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

I own a vRS with stock 16 inch wheels - came shod with Dunlop sport 2000 as the O.E. tyres.

Car was tuned a few months back by Pete to 240 bhp and then I switched to Yoko - db Decibel 215/55/ 16 - ride was really harsh. Also, the overall rolling radius was increased due to his tyre profile.

Now running on PP2's - 225/ 50 / 16. They are great. Car rides and handles much better now.

The problem I am having is that i have 15" Rim size and not 16" as the vRS. Hence I am finding it hard to find tyres that suit my purpose.
The only ones I could find in the size I require with the V speed rating was the YOKOHAMA AVS ES 100.
I would like some more choices but is it really hard to find tyres with the following size: 215/60/R15 V
HELP!!

Nanu,

The 1.8 Tpi comes with a 6J rim; I doubt it you would be able to fit 215 size tyes ( My local tyre guy here says no. )

I think it would be better for you to upgrade to 16 inch wheels, rather than buy 15 inch 6.5 J wheels.
RS alloy wheels for eg. are 6.5 J, with either 205 / 55/ R16 (or) 225 / 50/ R16.

Check this link: Tyre Calculator - Alloy Wheels - Specialist supplier of alloy wheels and tyres packages, 0% Finance and Fast Delivery


Let me know if you need help with pricing on the tyres.

are you running on the stock rims or do you have aftermarket alloys?
