I had Blizzaks on my Golf TDI and I loved them. Looking forward to hearing about your impressions!
Thanks for the update! I plan to move to my place in the Sierra Nevada. It is USUALLY just below the snow elevation at 3000 feet. But not always. BESIDES the fun aspect, the limited slip diff weighed in on my vehicle choice.Snow-wise, not really -- we haven't really had a lot of snow where I live, though I will say that the tires do very well in the cold (and this weekend has been extreme in that regard). These aren't summer tires that harden into hockey pucks when the temperature drops, for sure.
Road noise is loud, especially at highway speed, though that may be expected. They tend to howl, but that's OK considering the tradeoff. But in general, between the limited-slip diff and these tires, the car goes where you point it with confidence. I'm happy, and I look forward to keeping these as a dedicated winter set!
Already looking forward to the spring and getting some stickier rubber on some other wheels I've recently obtained... stay tuned for that. 😏
