Replaced the OEM tires with a set of Michelin Pilot A/S 3 after less than one month of ownership because I don't want to die. Suggest you do the same. Driving in the rain was like skating on ice. The Michelins make the Jetta ride, handle and brake like it's supposed to (I've had three Jettas, two Passats, three Golfs). Would have replaced with the EL400 with Conti DWS (my standard for years) but the reviews had me try the Michelins. Happy with the choice so far.
