Re: 15' Inch Snow's on 1.8T? (yjb1975)

It's difficult to recommend a snow tire to somebody who doesn't say where they live or how they drive their car. Somebody in serious mountain country would go for something that would let them climb the side of a building like a narrow (185 or less) studded Nokian Hakka 1 on 15" steel wheels. Somebody who sees mostly flats and few pot holes could live quite happily with an agressive all season tire on their 17" alloy wheels. If you have reasonable snow driving skills, you can get by in most parts of the world with stock all season tires as long as they still have most of their tread. A VW is a superb snow car as long as you stay off the brakes.
Me? I run the Nokian Hakka Q studless snowtire on 15" some OEM steel wheels I bought used in the Vortex classifieds. I still have my alloy wheels and summer tires on the car at the moment.
