On the off-chance that this is still useful..... with my Edition 2.0TSi due for collection in a few weeks, I asked Skoda UK if the car would have direct or indirect TPMS. This matters because I'm going to change the wheels from 19 inch to 17 inch and fit all-season tyres, so needed to know if there are TPMS sensors involved. Anyway, the official reply was that my car will have indirect TPMS, which makes things a lot easier.

Colleague's experience with his Honda: "brilliant reliability, only thing that gives me trouble is.... the TPMS sensors."

I have had two false alarms on my two Kodiaq’s, the tyre pressures were as required. Generally I am happy this it, compared to the Vauxhall version it’s great. One reason, of many, why I would not get a Vauxhall.

On the new Sportline I noticed uneven tyre wear on the near side front. The tyres they put on as standard ( Continental ContiSportContact™ 5) seem to wear quickly compared to the Hankooks which I expected but they are almost gone after 10k miles., online reviews seem to suggest this is normal for them as they are soft compound)

Anyone had the same issue?

Which all season tyre do people suggest, value versus performance?

For best all weather performance and long lasting life it would seem that Michelin Cross Climate are hard to beat. Not the cheapest, but like all Michelin's, they last for lots of miles.

Thank-you, unfortunately they don’t do the right size from what I can see.

235/55R18 are available but not sure about the other rims.

Looks like they only go up to 19".

Can retrofit the TPMS-Direct, works fine. The parts are pretty cheap. Problem is you can't code a new controller module using VCDS, you need ODIS to do it (or VCP). ODIS seems to be in a competition with IBM Notes for the worst user interface ever.

Don't forget to notify your Insurer of the wheel change or risk a non payout for any claim. Also might be worth a quiet word with your dealer viz-a-viz warranty?

Thanks Colin, that's excellent advice, I am indeed aware of the need to tell the insurance company. have already had a conversation with them: because the wheels I intend to use are (a) smaller, with higher-profile tyres and (b) conform to Skoda's approved list of sizes, their response was 'no problem'. But if I wanted to do something weird and pointless, like mega-big wheels, rubber band tyres, spacers to move the wheels out by 50 cm (slight exaggeration) then their response would be, er, different.
Regarding warranty, the advice from Skoda UK was 'no problem, but any issue with the wheels themselves is down to me claiming from the supplier'.

Brief update: did indeed notify my insurance company (LV) regarding the changes to smaller wheels, they are totally happy. Due to collect the car later this week, Covid-19 permitting, then change the wheels the day after collection. My local tyre fitter operates a wheel/tyre 'hotel', plan is to re-fit original wheels when I eventually sell the car.
