    I just bought a new set of alloys/snows from Tire Rack and did not want to spring for the addition $ for the pressure sensors on each rim. is there a way to turn off the light on my dash just for when I use my snows?

    Wheels were refinished by RimPro prior to last winter and are in decent shape (no pics right now). Tires are General Altimax Arctic (f/k/a Gislaved Nordfrost) in 205/55R16's with one season on them. They come with the hubcentric rings installed and I think I have some extras lying around in...

    I have a set of 4 15"wheels with good 15" Bridgestone Blizzaks that I used on my 2000 Passat sedan. There is plenty of tread left and I would like to use them on my new (used) 2008 Passat wagon that has 16 inch wheels/summer tires. Is there any reason that I should not used the 15inch...

    Looking for feedback from fellow 4mo variant owners who run snows in the winter. What do you recommend and what do you not recommend? I'm in MA (south shore) and we get a pretty wide range of snow and ice conditions.

    There don't seem to be too many choices for snows in the stock 15" size (195/65R15) so I figured I'd consider 205/60R15 to expand my choices. I really wanted to go with the M3 WinterSports, but what gives with the 27lb weight per tire in this size!? :icon_eek: (They must have lead belts? ;))...

    :confused: I am in the market for snow tires for my 2005 Variant. I am getting the Nokian WRs. I am trying to decide whether to just use the stock 16" Road America wheels with 205/55/16 94V tires, or get 15" steel wheels with 195/65/15 91H tires. Price is a wash, the 16" tires are with within...

    I'm trying to get ready for next year (yeah, early but I want everything in place. So my question is: 1. Mount Nokian snow tires on my stock 17" oem rims (2005 passat) 2. Pick up a set of 16" Road America's and mount snows on them? Is there any "handling" issues with putting snows on...
