            Great pictures, great write-up! Do you ever get any rubbing with the 245s? Did you have to use any spacers or whatnot to clear the calipers on the front? How much better/more fun is the LSD compared to the open dif MKVI?

            Silly question - why didn't you get more performance oriented winter rubber? Tread pattern looks like Altimax Arctics(?) Those are great, don't get me wrong, but they are squishy! With that said, how much better is winter traction with the LSD + winter rubber?

              So I have to be honest with you, when the winter picture was first posted I looked at the thread pattern in the snow tracks for a while trying to determine what type of tires they were. I gave up. I think its awesome you dared venture a guess with such limited information. Youre a better man than me.

                Because he bought them from me for a good price a few years ago. At least I'm assuming they are the same tires, as they are the same wheels.

                  I used them on one of my older MKIVs are few years back. Amazing in snow. Like marshmallows on dry freeway speeds.

                    I replaced them with another set of the same thing. I really am just looking for snow tires, and the used one was good enough to convince me for a new set. Besides they are also very well priced.

                    Snow traction was very good from the dumping we had 3 weeks ago. I was quite impressed how much better it is. PP in general has been great.

                    EDIT on the 245s:

                    No need for any spacer or anything. The wheels they are on are ET45, but plenty of room either way especially since 245/40/17s are actually a shorter tire than the stock sizing. Caliper clearance is tight with 17s in general with wheel weights, but so far all 3 sets I've had on the car has had no issue...
