This was this o.e. tire on my tdi sportwagon, with only minimal mileage on tires the wet traction and light snow traction was not good,yes it is an all-season tire which means poor snow capabilities. The wet traction may be compromised by the torque of the tdi, but I think Bridgestone could do better in the rain, maybe more of a directional type tread pattern for better water evacuation. I replaced w/4 snowies and the car was a different vehicle! Hint to vw why not make an wad sportwagon tdi! Now that spring finally arrived I ordered new 17 wheels wrapped in summer tires!. 2 sets of wheels and tires is the only way to go living in the northern tier of pa, the tire rack continues to be incredible to deal with. Thanks
