You could at least hit that with some rust neutralizer and primer to slow it down ha!Swapped a few cars over to winter mode recently.
Rears. Winter on left. Summer on right.
TT got swapped as well
Put the plow on trusty rusty. Running Goodyear Duratracs. Sprayed the plow with fluid film.

Let me know how you like them. Been looking for something like that for Subaru duty but I keep finding gently used sets of rubber with wheels for less than $300 a set. For a while I had 4 extra sets of wheels for three cars 🤣
Closeup of the new rubber...first time trying a set of "all weather" tires (i.e. all seasons with the 3PMS designation).
That rack:Same mode as last year (GT4 in winter), but now I actually have a place to store the tires instead of the dealership charging to store them (Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N1, OZ Leggera HLT):

Yes, that rack is as wide as it can safely go to mount on the studs and it just fits the 295s (11in wheel) and 245s (8.5in wheel). (Well, as you can see it sort of doesn't fit - that bike lock is for safety)
We have the same tires on our 2021 Golf, love them. Question, do they seem smaller to you than other 225/45R17's? In your picture they look a bit small and on our car they kind of look small enough to be dorky looking. Had I known I would have gone with 50 series versions.Winter mode. B6 Passat Monte Carlos and fresh Continental VikingContact 7's in 225/45R17.
That didn't really cross my mind--I was most concerned about keeping the same diameter/speedo readings. I do agree that some tread patterns definitely look a bit more aggressive than others. From the side the Viking 7's look fairly pedestrian.We have the same tires on our 2021 Golf, love them. Question, do they seem smaller to you than other 225/45R17's?
