If you are referring to the tyre pressure monitoring system, as far as I am aware, the Ateca does not uses pressure gauges, it uses data from the ABS sytem.
Forum for all Seat Ateca Owners
There are normally some good suppliers in the equipment and accessories hall at Palexpo if you can wait as long as early March for GIM. I'm sure it's the hall closest to the train station. See other replies regarding passive TPMS, but you'll find many possibilities and show offers in that hall.luiscana wrote: ↑Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:09 amhi all,
My new car is about to arrive beg Feb (hopefully). a black Xcellence 1.5 DSG 4x2 Anyway, to save some €€€ I decided to look at online stores for some alloy rims. Here in Switzerland my ATECA dealer is offering the standard SEAT Corp. set for a 17" for almost 1800€, which seems a lot to me comparing with what you guys at UK can get...
As BikeBert, I dont want to buy anything that is not the "standard" accepted/recommended by SEAT to avoid any issues with homologation or insurance. Terefore, going for a set of 7.0J x 17" ET 45 rims seems to be the safe thing to do. My only question is: do I need to buy it with the pressure control gauges? do I need to confirm any other technical topic with manufacturer or internet site ( ) before buying them ?
This I understand I was meaning in general if I can use this kind of wheels without damage in Winter Season coming from salt on the Street etc... I read that these brushed alu wheels are not good for Winter Season because of quicker damage on that. I have summer 215/50 r18 and I will buy the same for Winter I think. I like this kind.boristhebold wrote: ↑Thu Mar 21, 2019 4:03 pmYou can use any wheels that fit the car properly but most tend to drop at least 1" in wheel size and fit slightly higher profile tyres...so if you normally run 225/50 - 18, go for 215/55 -17. It just means that there is slightly more give in the tyre sidewall for the odd occasion where a low speed skid puts you into a kerb, less chance of damaging the rim/tyre. (And tyres are generally cheaper)
