Put mine on on Monday. New TireRack purchase.....16" Continental ExtremeWinterContacts on Rial Milano rims in gunmetal. The tires were well rated by both Consumer Reports and TireRack.

So far, on the pavement with no snow yet, they've been amazing. Much quieter than the 17" stock all-season Continentals, which made a lot of noise. The ride is smoother, and less responsive steering-wise, as would be expected in going to more rubber and less rim.

Turned off the TPMS system using VCDS. Also turned off the annoying seatbelt chime...
