    So I need new tires but I'm finding my current size hard to find a variety of tires to choose from. The previous owner had 235/35/19 on them. I looked up vw's factory size for Helios and its listed as 255/40/19. I currently have them on a B6 w/ stock suspension w/ no current plans to changing...

    The rears on my B5 sedan have much more wear than the fronts. I never had any tire wear issues with this car. Never drove under-inflated. Only inflated to 34 psi a couple of times when the trunk was loaded up with car camping gear. More detail on the two worn tires. Got 4 new tires...

    Hi folks, I have recently made some changes to my 2013 CC with VCDS (including changing the country code, used to change the 'ding' tone in the vehicle as well as some other things). The car now gives me the error "FAULT: TIRE MONITORING CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE". When I try to store the tire...

    I have a 2003 V6 and welcome any advice on getting more clearance for my car. I currently have 17'' wheels with 225/55 tires and slightly lower-than-OEM suspension. I would like to gain some more clearance and have better winter weather control. Has anyone transformed his V6 B5.5 into a more...

    Have a stock B5.5 wagon. Am I able to fit 205/70/15s where there is currently 195/65/15s? Would there be any issue with clearance?

    2008 Passat Komfort wagon: I had the front tires replaced last week and now there is a creaking sound when steering left or right at low speeds (say up to 15mph). Seems to go away above there. Temporary due to better tread now or something sinister? Thanks.

    I looked around and didn't find anything on it. Is there a place online or on this site, that will decode the options tag in the rear spare tire well. I have read it list all the options just dont know the codes.

    I am looking at two tires - well, two tire brands. These are Grand Touring class tires on Tire Rack. (1) Michelin Premier A/S. Here I can go (stock) 195/65-15 OR 205/60-15. I had been running 205/60-15s in ultra/high performance forever but there aren't highly rated tires in those categories...

I have two 91H in the back and two 89H in the front. Would you all suggest I get...

    Good day I just bought a VW Passat 2003 model, v6 2.8litre 4 motion. I've been trying to find the name for this side panel that is missing from the car. This is the passenger's side which is missing on the rear tire. Here's a photo of the driver's side that is not missing on the rear tire...

    Took a drive to PA with a few buddies in my '03 Wagon V6 4motion. Caught a flat proceeded to drive about a quarter mile to my destination before changing, there was still enough air to get there. Changed the tire relieved that I had a full size spare, on our way back from PA to NY my cousin...

    Hey, guys, what tires do you like? I am currently using Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s, but they seem to wear pretty fast. I do mostly city driving in my 2001 GLX 5-speed manual. They grip like crazy!

    Gents! What's been your favourite (I'm a Canadian) choice of reasonably priced summer tread for a wagon that delivers a comfortable ride? In addition, with my stock setup how big of a tire can I go w/o modifying?
