Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Might be interested, and could collect, but a couple of questions...

Tyre load index?

Wheel rim width and offset?

Need these to check: enough load capacity for my car, + the clearances.

PS Do you have a matching set of chains for sale too, and if so what?

Regards,
George

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@Fat George, the OP purchased the car (October 2013 Octavia Est 4x4 SE) from me three years ago and included in the purchase was another set of matching factory alloys and a factory 16" steel rim.

The alloys are the Skoda Ilias 6.5J x 16" ET 46 and the steel is the same spec, all to take a 205/55/R16 tyre. Here's a pic of the alloys:



And here's the factory brochure: https://www.simpsonsskoda.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Octavia-brochure-April-2013.pdf

And the stud spacing fits any VAG car from then to current, subject to disc diameter clearance etc. Might even fit earlier years as well.

The manual for my Skoda - just bought - says I need 6J rims ET 48-50mm with R16 205/55 if chains are going to be used - and that’s what I wanted.

So many thanks, @spyderjohn; only half an inch on the rim and 2mm ET difference there, but I’ll be cautious, and opt out!

It's stamped inside the wheels but I still had the info on my laptop from when I bought the addition wheels.
