so when i bought the car i bought this tire wear and treatment thing that basically if you blow a tire wear etc they will replace it for 5 years, now its usually like $600 but since i knew dealer guys got it for $200 (got car at cost too) so here is how that works, they replace the tires that CAME with the car =\, so if i want to buy new ones, they will only cover the cost of the stock ones, thats where im at, what do you guys think of average stock 15"s on a passat are ? michellin tires thats about all i know ( im tire/wheel lame =\ )

Well, the stock Passat came with 2 types of tires that are 15 inch. Either the Michelins or the Contis both are decent. What exactly do you want the tires to do - I see you are in NV so all seasons are probably not necessary.

I disagree!!! The Contis BLOW! :p

The MXV4+'s are really pricey. $140-ish each last time I checked at my local Costco. :nervous:

My next tire will be a Yoko Avid Touring. $52 shipped each from Tires.com.

I had the stock Michelin Energy MXV4 plus on my car. H-speed rated. Not a bad tire but as stealth said, pricey. Stock size is 195/65/15. Tire Rack has the H rated tire for $109, the V, a higher speed tire, for $131. I do not know which Conti tire came standard. Do you have the Continental tires or the Michelin? BTW I just replaced the worn out Michelin's with Bridgestone Potenza 950's in 205/60/15. These were $80. each at Tire Rack.
