    I got a set of Dunlop Sport 5's on a new set of black 18"alloys for my red Cupra. Black on red looks pretty good.

    I have Nokian WRD4 on original 19" and I'm ipressed with their performance. Dry cold tarmac, wet highway, slush on the highway and snow....at all these conditions it's very good tire. No chance to test at higher temperatures so far - i had a couple of nokians already before and dry tarmac at 20'C was always the weakest point.

    Can confirm. I'm running Nokian WR D4's on original 19" wheels and it works great in snow/dry/wet tarmac :)

    There are winter tires and there are Winter Tires ;) ...just saying ;)
    These are Continental VikinkContact 6 in 235/35/19, but only really meant for nordic climate.

    Until we all have to fit winter tyres by law, I think having winter tyres on (when most cars don't) is a recipe for disaster, you stop and joe bloggs just runs into you. My Cupra stays safe in the drive on it's summer PSS tyres when the snow is bad, and I jump on the bus or work from home nice and safe too.
