Can you put 15" steel rims and snowtires on a 2001 1.8T Jetta with Sports Suspension and 17" Long Beach rims?
I have called many different VW dealers and gotten several different answers. Some say yes others say no its won't clear the brake caliper others say its the sport suspension option that makes it not fit?
What sizes are people using?
205/65/15?
195/65/15?
What kind of tires Artic Alpins (I heard they were very noisy), Pirelli (VW dealers seem to love these 210's and the snowsports as well as Winter Ice)
Come on all you cold weather Vw'ers out there help me stay out of the ditch this winter...
Any suggestions?

Re: 15' Inch Snow's on 1.8T? (2xtrms)

I assume you mean that you are using that tire, if so what size and on what type of car (engine, sports suspension?)
I am be quoted about $35 more per tire for the pilots over the reg alpins. Did you do this to get a highed speed rating, H vs Q?
