    My 2005 1.8T GLS wagon will need tires within a few months (sometime this summer). Planning ahead here. Interested in hearing of people's experiences/suggestions. Probably would go with an "all season" tire. Not a "summer" or "winter" scenario, although I'm in Dallas, occasionally will do the...

    My passat is an 04 gls wagon and in the door jam is says to have 35 psi in the front and 44psi in the rear and spare tire. At the volkswagen dealer I work at we set tire pressure to what the dor jam says. With the tires on the new volkswagens the max psi is around 50. With my tires I have no...

    Perhaps a dumb question, but would some 215 60 16 tires work OK on a 01 Passat wagon? I have a great set of snows in this size and would like to use them, but don't want to be ripping the inner wheel well covers out as I go over bumps. Looks like this tire is 10mm wider than the stock size but...

    So i just bought these bad boys for my 04 passat wagon 1.8T. 17x7.5 ET47 When i went to look at them, i was told that the PO had 235/45 tires on them. I was wondering if for my B5.5 that would be a good size to go with aswell. I have searched and looked around and keep seeing either 235 or...

    I have a 2004 4Motion Passat. The stock tire size is 195/xx/15. I've been looking for a set of OEM 16" wheels and not having any luck finding what I want, but I need to replace tires before my State Safety Inspection is done. Since the odometer reads slow, about 3-4 mph, I am thinking of...

    One thing I noticed and learned a long time ago, if you keep your tires clean, black, and shining, it makes your whole car look clean even if it's not. A neat idea I got with a little inspirationfrom the wife. In the home cleaning section of most stores you can find this little palm brush that...

    1 BBS VZ wheel + fairly new tire. Wheel is structurally sound (no repairs/bends done to it) There is some clear coat crack on the face of the wheel spokes, but the wheel itself has no real curb rash to speak of. (there are a few tiny little marks, but no gouges, etc) The tire that...

    So after having these things in my possession for weeks now, and admiring that they are an actual Made in Spain product waiting to go on once my control arm and bolt kit come in I realize something; They don't have a vertical bolt hole, just a solid shaft with bolt notch for the pinch bolt. I...
