These are the OE tires for my 2010 Golf. As with most OEM tires, you would be much better off replacing them with a nice third party set that would likely be comparable or even better priced. The problems I have with these tires are:
1. Noise level
This is a really noisy tire. Maybe it's all Contis though, because the original Conti tires on my other car, 3 series BMW were annoyingly noisy as well.
This is the worst thing about this tire. At almost 30K on the car, tread on these 60K-rated tires is almost completely shot, and this is just a commuter car that never gets pushed to the limit.
A few of other notes.
- never tried going into snow on these (nor would I have in this car anyway)
- wet traction is just okay
- best fuel mileage experienced closer to end of tire life, as expected.
Bottom line: you can do better than these, and definitely do not just buy them because your car had them on when it was new!
