Word. If you drove a jetta and had a winter set and a summer set then you already know whats up.
The conti pros are some pretty good tires and many of the new VW's come with them and I never saw any problems. (I am a VW tech)
I am a VW head myself. My whip is a 2004 24v vr6 GTI. I hope you enjoyed your jettas before you traded for some AWD fun.
