New Winter Shoes

… For our Volkswagen Golf, that is.

We made a stop at our local tire store where a good friend hooked us up with a set of Bridgestone Blizzak LM60 tires since both our cars will see road time in snow this year. A set of Hartmann Euromesh 4 wheels were selected to wrap the tires around so we don’t risk trashing our mint set of BBS RC wheels we previously had used as Winter rollers. It was also nice to know we were the first Volkswagen to run the Euromesh 4 with the 5×100 bolt pattern. H&R DR-series 5mm and 15mm spacers were also added to get the fit just where we wanted. Also new is a set of chrome VW badges to replace the smoked emblems we had been running for a while. (Anyone wanna buy ’em?) The “empty hole” look is no longer and we’ll run this way until we can (eventually) go badgeless the right way. That’s one less thing to worry about from our to-do list mentioned in an earlier post.
