Do you know where you got them from as I'm interested in doing the same
Online. In the end I used MrWinterWheels, but there were a few other websites offering similarly priced deals, but his were just about the best priced and he was very responsive with questions I had to ensure I got exactly the right sized alloys (offsets etc). Cost me £780 total for four new alloys with four 215/65 R17 Goodyear Vector 4 Seasons G2 tyres fitted and delivered (there was a pre-winter discount running at the time). They are the same radius as the fitted alloys/summer tyres, but clearly a different ratio between alloy and tyre. I swap them over myself (though they are quite heavy, and it's not as easy as other cars I have had where the bolts stick out from the hub assembly, taking the weight of the wheel while you tighten the nuts)

(The Michelin Cross Climates which I fitted permanently on my other car (a Honda) came from tyresonthedrive, who also had an offer on at the time and were as well priced as anyone else I could find, and clearly I needed those fitting on the original alloys of the car so could not do it myself fully online).

Hi archie - Can't remember where on Amazon I got mine, but you can purchase a steel alignment tool that temporarily screws in one of the hub stud holes to take the weight of the wheel. A great help 8-)

That's a great idea - I wasn't aware these existed. I'll go searching Amazon now! Thank you.

EDIT - I've now found what you mean. They seem to come in different sizes, and unfortunately their fitting guide says that VW uses 2 different sizes. Does anyone know what the correct size is please? (Of course, I will check the manual also, but I'm not sure I have ever seen this sort of tech spec detail in any manual!). The item description says:
BITS4REASONS E-TECH NEW MODEL QUICK ALIGN WHEEL TOOL M14 X 1.25 (OTHER THREAD M12 x 1.5, M12 x 1.25 and M14 x 1.5 SEE DESCRIPTION FOR MORE INFO)
The fitting guide says VW use both M12 and M14...

Wish the cars had the option of being fitted with All Season tyres from new - I think cars ordered in Germany have that option.

I recall an article from Continental saying that, in the UK, it'd be perfectly OK to run full winter tyres year round. We do that on a Honda Jazz in the family - running Michelin Alpins - it's absolutely fine and they last longer than the summer tyres the car came with from new.

We did the same last year bought 4 Goodyear 4 seasons from Costco. Had a deal on at the time think all four came to £380ish. Drive and handles as good as summer and great in the snow when we had some
