What are your "other" tires? Are they all-season tires or summer tires?
|Quoting MD-90 (Reply 9):|
The same Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires that it wears in the summer. Life grinds to a halt here in Alabama with the mere accumulation of an inch of snow so there's never really any need for anything other than an all-season tire. In fact you almost could get away with using summer tires year round.

Getting 18" rims with the Hakkis on Saturday
|Quoting MrChips (Reply 10):|
while possessing far better wet/dry pavement behaviour. Considering most of my driving is in the city or on the highway, I don't need anything more aggressive. That said, because they're a "performance winter tire", they were extremely expensive - a couple hundred more than any other set on the market.
|Quoting ANITIX87 (Reply 12):|
What's your stock tire width on the GL? Something like 275/50R19? If so, the 18s may be OK (especially if you have AWD), but I would have gone with 17s if they fit around the calipers, and the narrowest tire possible if you don't have AWD since the diesel has so much torque.
