Skoda Fabia Tyre Wear and Handling Problems
Does your Skoda Fabia (or VW Polo / SEAT Ibiza) suffer from uneven tyre wear and vague handling? SuperPro employee, Jon, has owned a 2012 Fabia Scout 1.6TDI from new and has always had an issue with the rear tyres wearing unevenly and the handling has always been towards the functional rather than fun. The car passed its last MOT test with advisory notices for a leaking rear damper, rear beam axle bushes were showing signs of movement but hadn't failed and, worn inner tie-rods on the steering rack. When we looked at the history of the MOT reports, we noticed that every single one had mentioned worn rear tyres. Every time, the tyres had worn unevenly. We decided to actually fix the problem that was causing the uneven tyre wear and took the opportunity to make the car more engaging to drive at the same time... This is now a genuinely fun car to drive and still performs the family duties in comfort and without compromise!
SuperPro is an innovative Australian manufacturer of automotive polyurethane suspension bushings and suspension parts based in Brisbane, Australia. These specially formulated, high-quality components are designed to create suspension solutions for better stability, handling and control in on-road, off-road and race track applications. SuperPro offers the widest range of suspension upgrade components including poly bushes, suspension bushes, anti-roll bar bushes, anti-roll bars, anti-roll bar links, radius rods, control arm, panhard rods, shock absorber bushings, greasable shackle and pin kits, and so much more.
Our experience has shown that modern vehicles today do not have provision for wheel alignment correction and as the vehicle’s suspension softens with age, they begin to wander or steer off in one direction. Replacing with SuperPro bushings and parts rectifies this by removing excess compliance in the suspension system without affecting NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness).
Products are constantly tested and re-engineered on our own vehicle fleet, customer's vehicles in the UK, Europe and around the world, as well as a conducting a continuous program of cyclic testing on specifically-designed test equipment.
With our extensive range of superior quality bushes, we don't just sell Polyurethane Suspension Bushes; we provide complete solutions to suspension and steering problems.
- Better road holding
- Constant steering geometry
- Increased tyre life
- More responsive steering
- Longer service life of suspension components
- No increase in Noise, Vibration or Harshness (NVH)
