What wheel size have you got? 18" on V1 generally come with the terrible Bridgestone Turanza T005.

19" on V2 generally come on Conti Ecocontact 6. They are a lot better than the Bridgestones. but are quite thin and prone to punctures as a result.

Don't know what the 20" / V3 wheels generally come on.

The 20" wheels generally come with the Continental Seal EcoContact 6, that's also what I fitted to the Electra wheels

What is a ”good” tire, in your opinion? And what are the standard eco ones? Continental?

You can't really go wrong with anything from Michelin or Goodyear. Continantal are a decent tyre, but generally wear quickly and the ones fitted to the Born are really thin and prone to punctures (i've replaced one already, and plenty of other ID3/Born owners have too).

After going through the 18” turanza tyres in around 7k miles I’ve replaced with a full set of Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6s. Noticeably quiet road noise, noticeably grippier in wet and dry but no noticeable improvement in range - could just be offsetting the decreased range with weather conditions, who knows.

i've had pilot sports on pretty much all cars where possible, the standard tires are conteinental eco's which are unsutible for fast road driving imo

Yep agree, a nice factory look.
Do you know the offset on the standard wheels (usually stamped on the back as ET and 2 numbers) ?
I thought stock were 44 but one calculator I was using for wheels and tyres says 50.

How are the Mak holding up, what are the roads like in your area ?
I want to get a spare set with 18" and winter tyres on, but unsure what makes are best avoided and which are at least as durable as stock.

@Nacaduct Swapped my Cupra Ateca stock flintstones .. i mean bridgestones for Michelin Pilot Sport 4's and would recommend.
