OEM tires. Was lucky to squeeze 35K miles out of them. Noisiest tire I've ever driven. Overall, not very happy and am anxious to upgrade as the CC handles well, and will likely improve with better tires. VW sure must have gotten a deal from Continental on these, but at the expense of a mediocre driving experience at the height of a new owner's love of their purchase. Switching to the Continental DWS which other owners of the same vehicle really enjoy, in all conditions, and for less $$ than these. Go figure.
