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...

I'd like those wheels for my summer tires! They look sweet, nice choice!
2014 Passat SEL TDI(GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN). Tungsten Silver exterior with Titan Black interior. I have VCDS HEX-USB+CAN, still learning how to use it.
