Skoda Superb 3T (2009-2015) has been discontinued and replaced by Skoda Superb NP.
Wheels and tyres
My 2014 Superb Outdoor came with 225/40r18 wheels and tyres. The ride on Australian coarse chip roads was extremely loud and harsh.
Do yourself a favour and change to 17” wheels and 225/50 tyres. This is the same as the VW Passat. The whole driving experience is far far better. Quieter, smoother and very little give away in handling. It even makes the Speedo read exactly according my gps.
Otherwise the Superb is an excellent place to be

Great car - except for the cost of spares
I have a Superb 2 TDi 125. Great car for long distance and have taken it all over the North island, The only caveat is the price of spares. The right headlight failed and a replacement from Gazley cost $3000.
Purchased in November 2019.
I have a 2015 Tsi 118 Elegance Station Wagon and rate the car highly. This was a run out deal just before the release of the new model and was kitted out with all the bells and whistles - self parking, reversing camera,Kelsey system etc, etc including flash 225x40/R18 wheels shod with Continental SportContact2 tyres. Oh dear- not good! The low profile tyres accentuate every bump and pothole and while dry weather handling was excellent and motorway driving was good the positives were far out weighed by the negatives of the harsh "real road" exp...erience. To add insult to injury the Continentals wore out rapidly. I have replaced the wheels and tyres with 205x55/R16s and this has transformed the ride of the car for the better to a degree I can hardly believe and it now soaks up bumps and potholes very well. This begs the question as to why car makers go to the trouble of engineering a really good car and then equip it with patently inappropriate wheels and tyres. Anyway I am at last a happy Skoda owner.
