Hey guys and gals,

Managed to get hold of Autodata, and got it to spit out the tyre pressures for (what i think) all Fabia models...

Hope this is of use to peeps!

Thanks for info on tyre pressures. Very useful. Don't understand all these metric pressures. Too long in the teeth.:thumbup:

Found this conversion website for various metric measurements used it to convert bar tyre pressures printed on the back of the fuel cover to psi >:: World Wide Metric ::< I think the volum coversion e.g. Lts to galls is based on US Gallon which is smaller than UK Gallon which is approx 4.5LT to gallon.

What tyre pressue should i use on a Fabia Combi 1.9 TDI with 215/40/17 on 8x17 rims?

Currently im running around 2.6bar -> 37-38 PSI all round - a little on the high side.

Can someone tell me what the tyre pressures are supposed to be for a 54 plate vRS? I thought it was 32psi on the front and 33 on the rear (which is what mine are currently at), but the front ones look a little flat, especially when the car is parked on a kerb.

AFAIK it's 34 front (2.3 bar?) and 2.1 bar on the back - it should be on the label inside your filler cap.

Makes a huge difference to ride quality I've found - with a touch too little pressure the wheel seems to 'absorb' every bit of every bump, when correct it sort of bounces over.

I think the VRS should be around 36psi to be honest. the skoda pressures seems to be out by a lot as like others ahve said they seem flat and underinflated at 32psi

has anyone checked the polo equivalent for the pressures? and compared the 2?

I have 1.4 tdi classic (54 plate) The petrol, erm, filler cap states higher presures. For 165 70s it says:
2.3 / 2.1 unladden (f/r)
2.3 /3.0 (42psi!) laden
Sounds high - don't think my tenpenny inflator will get that high :-(

Fabia vRS with 205/40/17 on Audi TT 17's, lowered KW coil-overs front and rear, 30 psi in front tyres and 28 psi in the rears.

I think you're wrong there. The only thing that makes a difference to the presures is the weight of the vehicle, wheel/tyre combo is irrelevant.

In fact running a wider lower profile tyre will cause the edges to wear more due to the stiffer sidewalls so more pressure would bring the centre of tread back into better contact.

Just run the pressures as stated for the standard car or a few pounds over if you want better fuel economy at the expense of slight ride quality reduction.

Irrespective of what width tyres your car has fitted the contact patch is exactly the same for any given car as the weight hasn't altered so the tyre area can't.

:thumbup:Thanks very much, took delivery of my 56 plate elegence yesterday, and have been reading through all the documentation today, and could I hell as like find any reference to the tyre pressures. Didn't even know about the fuel cap info, cos I haven't needed to put any in yet.

Thanks again, great stuff.

Cheers, Trev.

Does anyone know the tyre pressures for the 1.2 HTP Fabia?

My tyre infation chart is too worn to read.

Hi,

Running a 2006 Fabia 1.4 TDI on the Autodata pressures is a bone shaking ride.

I have experimented and find that (in old money) 29 psi Front and 30 psi Rear - give a far safer and comfortable ride.
