[non-]OEM rims registration

I gonna buy for my 3rd Gen Octavia used Dezent rims with CoC for 2nd Gen Octavia.
My car rims specs are 6.5Jx16 ET46
and the Dezents are 6.5Jx16 ET50
I am pretty sure 4mm ET difference are safe. What are the risks of using the rims with that CoC?
What is the best and cheapest way to "legalise" the OEM rims?

If you have an accident and they spot the rims, you'll be considered to be at fault, irrespective if this is true or not, they just need somebody to blame for the accident.


Go to the vehicle testing center and get them approved.

Re: [non-]OEM rims registration

If the CoC doesn't match your vehicle then you won't be legal, full stop.

The chances of it ever being a problem are low, I'm sure, but I can't see how you expect to be able to "legalise" them.


(and just to clarify - OEM would normally refer to parts that were fitted as original equipment on the vehicle, so I've taken the liberty of editing the subject accordingly.)

Only if the modifications could reasonably be suggested as being a casual factor.

An MFK centre isn't able to certify equipment, all they could do is check the CoC, so they'd just fail it in this case.

I fully agree with you, but in same respect, a "casual factor" is a highly ambiguous wording and as we all know, it is far easier once they can blame somebody, case closed....




MFK center should easily be able to do any wheel check and issue an approval or a refusal, wheels are a very common item that are changed.

They can only check whether the aftermarket rims conform, and that's what the Certificate of Conformity is for. If they're not certified for any given vehicle there's surely nothing they can do about it.

I'm not sure I agree with that definition of OEM, they are Skoda wheels going on a Skoda. So they are from the Original Equipment Manufacturer of the product, however that doesn't mean they're good to go for that reason. Same as buying an OEM exhaust for a different engine option and trying to say that it's good because OEM. It might be, but there's a reason a CoC exists.

Edit: I thought Dezent (Decent) was the condition of the rims, not an aftermarket brand, my apologies.

Re: [non-]OEM rims registration

I am not sure that going to MFK center is the only option.
Shops provide a certificate, stating that the rims fit a specific vehicle.
It is also possible to buy the certificate for about 120.-
Also I read something about ASA test report, have no idea how to get one.
Another question, what is targatyre.ch for?

Re: [non-]OEM rims registration

The offset falls within the range for wheels for your car. I'd say it would be highly unlikely anyone would bat an eyelid except the MFK especially if they're Skoda branded but I guess they're "Dezent" branded.
Having said that, if the tyres are further in that they should be, I guess someone could argue that it could cause the car the be unstable.

Re: [non-]OEM rims registration

There is no range, ET has to be exactly like in the manufacturer specifications.
+-5 mm is a reasonable range, but it is not legal.
Even when all the numbers match, a CoC from distributor required.
I am trying to understand what would be the easiest way to use that Dezent wheels.

Check cars type approval what ET are permitted. Sometimes more than one is listet. You can get the relevant part of the type approval document from a tyre dealer by requesteinmg a TARGA-Tyre extract for your car.

Check with Dezent (or importer) if they have an CoC which matches your car.

Check with Dezent (or importer) if they have an CoC with matches your car when a 4 mm spacer plate is used.

Find a StVA/SAN which offers the ASA Räderprüfung and be ready to pay for it.

Go to FAKT or DTC and get an approval for the rims.

Thanks, that was good to know.
Quite complicated...
Maybe I just buy original rims for few hundreds more and keep it simple.
I am also curious how the rims specs end up in the Fahrzeugausweiss?
How does the measurement?
