    So it appears that the VW Passat Alltrack Wolfsburg Edition runs a 19x8 (Albertville) with 245/40R19 94W tyres.

    I think there would be no issue with a change from 235 up to 245 still on the 8" rim.

    Maybe VCDS can code for the different tyre size to cancel out any speedo error?

    I just changed from 225/45x17 to 225/50x17 (Michelin Pilot Sport 4) to achieve more comfort through better cushioning. My Elegance 125Tdi wagon feels much better in ride and general insulation from the road. The vehicle also looks a lot better in my opinion. The wheels rotate 17 times fewer per kilometre than before according to a specialised online calculator(tyresizecalculator.com/charts/tire-size-chart-metric-by-rim-wheel-diameter). Not sure what that means in economy or performance; A member of the Briskoda website says that that change makes the speedo about spot on, instead of 5kph fast.

    I upgraded my tires from 225/45/18 to 235/35/19

    In Victoria we are allowed a 15mm rolling diameter change as legal i just squeaked it in at 12.8mm

    I used a app on my phone to gps check my speed i am now doing 98kph at a indicated 100kph it was 94kph at a indicated 100kph with the original 18 inch tyres

    So a little further digging revels the Passat (like my previous B8 had) comes with a full size spare, so no real issues there.

    I would be interested to hear from other ŠKODA Superb owners with 19" wheels what their space saver tyre is?
    Mine is a Continental T125/70R18 99M CST 17.

    I too am / was considering the change to a 245/40R19 tyre as replacement, however one piece of advice I received from a Tyre Retailer was to check the spare and compare the dimensions (rolling circumference), as they seem to think that they should all be the same as any difference could throw out the car (drivetrain / Haldex) if driven for any extended amount of time. For example if faced with a puncture and then rolling on the space saver for another couple of hundred kms...

    As the rolling circumference of the Continental T125/70R18 99M CST 17 is 78.2inch; 125/70R18 Tires

    Which doesn't even match the OEM 235/40R19 tyres rolling circumference of 82.9inch; 235/40R19 Tires

    So my question is, are the supplied space savers all 18" or should they also be 19"?

    As now the theory of the Tyre Retailer most likely has no relevance based on the OEM items as described above.

    Yes the 245's are cheaper and have an increased availability / variety of patterns, but I am wondering if it is the right choice?

    What I do know is that the Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyres need to go!!!

    So I just bought a set (x4) of Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 (Made In Germany) 245/40 R19 98Y XL.
    Fresh stock, Week 38 2018.

    I haven't put them on yet as I am waiting until Mid June before we go on a Road Trip to Canberra and the Alpine Region...

    PM if you are interested to know where I got them, as I got an excellent price!!!

    I got four 245/40-19 Michelin PS4 tyres fitted to my 206 a couple of weeks ago for $1020.

    A very good tyre. I had them (briefly) on my previous car (briefly because we got them a couple of months before we bought the superb) and I had 6 sets of Michelin PS3 on before that.
