I'm planning to upsize to an alltrack fitment when this set goes bald, this is car #4 that they've been transferred to since 2013. The wheels are from a 2000 B5 Audi A4.

Also, Michelin made it known that the next generation x-ice is on the way - I did consider getting some Hak R3's too.

I'm using the snow tires I bought when I had the '16 Jetta- 195-65-15 General Altimax Arctics. They're pretty quiet compared to the 18" Pirellis I took off....

I had the 30k service done yesterday. The brake fluid was flushed, no coolant leaks were found, key fob remote battery replaced, and the driver front door hinge bolt was tightened(I didn't have that special tool for bolt, looks like a 12 point internal bit)-they didn't top off washer fluid, tires weren't rotated(not listed on receipt either). Only good thing it's the same tech since the first service, unlike the service advisors-this is the 3rd different one. They used to have a luncheon on Saturdays for employees and customers, now it's only for employees. Now my debate starts do I have them do the 40k service or not next year......

Id do my own and save the cash. In fact i do do my own and the money i save pays for the next service that i do myself. Win win win.

So i decided to go up a size with my new tire. 225/45-18. Bridgestone Potenza Re980as. Overall they are 1" bigger in diameter. So it raised the car 1/2". I love how much it smoothed out the ride.

@GreenLantern_Tdi Is there an adjustment you can make to recalibrate the speedometer for the change? I too would consider getting a little more sidewall on the 18's - but I don't want to be blamed for the speeding tickets!

Im sure there is and in the next couple weeks when i replace my battery and update the battery modul with vcds i will see if i can fix the speedo too. Gps showed my speedo is now 2 mph slow which isnt a huge deal to me at this point in time.

Studded Hakka 9
Expensive but totally worth it.



Also, my OEM 17" wheels is now my winter set, no more switching tires.
So I got a nice deal on these:

18x8.5 et45


Didn't bought any tire yet but I like the Falken azenis fk510, still have 6month to think about this...

Speaking of snows, picked up my son's new Winterforce 2s mounted on steelies. Swapping them from the MK7 to IBW for delivery...to Wisconsin. The things dads do.

Looks very similar to our Haka 8s (which went on last night). Still trying to understand their stud pattern, I guess random is the best.

Those 9s are nice. That my next rubber for winter.

Just wish these current ones would wear out. Been 6 seasons and still over half tread....
