I second Igor's motion.....
Nothing like a good set of snows on a quattro.
I run the stock sized 195/60-14 Michelin's in the summer on the stock
alloys, and have a set of narrower (175/70-14's) Nokia Hakkapeliitta 10's
on extra steel rims.
Narrower is better on snow, especially when you hit the slush ridges at
65 mph plus on the interstate :).
Of course, I live in the snow belt off Lake Erie in WNY (200+ inches; the
reason I bought the quattro in the first place.)
This will be the third winter on the Nokia's; they wear real well.
Also discovered it's best to re-align before snow season. Snow/ice tends
to amplify slight misalignments.
The Nokia's have provision for studs; did'nt install them last time but
will for my next set of snows.
