Fitted Continental Wintercontact tyres to a 2nd set of Cadiz Alloys for my Golf R a couple weeks ago, just waiting for it to get colder before i swap the wheels over.
looking forward to seeing how the Golf R handles in snow
So you are like.... but with winter tyres...
Oh and in response to your weird question about my own tyre choice, 225/40/18 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 on a VW Cadiz wheel.
I would make certain you have a very good ceramic coating/sealant on them as those diamond cut alloys (most VAG diamond cut) are notorious for whiteworm etc ..& road salt/grit does not help..& neither do acidic wheel cleaners
Its always best to have a plain design with a good durable paint finish for winter alloys..
Plenty of threads on the web about it & these alloys:-
As for handling..at least you understand that correct tyre choice ensures that any driven wheel can grip....& the AWD with winter tyres is huge fun!!...
