Anyone can comment on the above tires for snow traction? Planning to run 205/60-15 on stock 15x6 steel rims. I am having a hard time to find a all season tire that has decent winter traction for my V6 B5 in that size with 91 load index and H rated or above.
I have 195/55-15 Proxes TPTs, and they're decent in winter. In snow, they're not as good as conventional all seasons, but I was able to get through several snow storms in New Hampshire with those on. I got stuck in a foot of snow once, but then again, i don't think all seasons are designed to handle that much snow.
Overall, I like them a lot. They're great in summer and decent in winter. i'll probably get them again next time.
Thanks for all your input, I am leaning towards the Turanza LS-H and plan to run 205-60-15 on my stock 15x6 steelies. There is one concern though, the Turanza has a 90 load index in that size but I think the Passat requires a 91 load index. Is this something to worry about?
