Winter Carvings for the Golf. A step up from the General Altimax's I had, which are a knockoff of a previous gen Gisvald (sp?) tire.
I had the prior gen Michelins Arctic Alpins as well, and have a set of the Toyos on the Mazda3 now, which work pretty well.
Every new generation of tires seems to be a step up from the previous one, it never ceases to amaze me. If I found a better deal on them I would have tried the Continentals, I was really happy with their summer tires.
