    I use my Avus's as I have RSTT's for the rest of the year and only then when it snows bad...

    I have another set of Avus's that need a refurb that I was planning to use as 'winter' wheels but I don't do the mileage inthe S3 now so prob won't bother... the FK452's I have on the RSTT's are good enough in the winter, just crap in the snow

    As with Tufty, I used to use my Avus's. But have to admit last couple of years I haven't bothered and just leave the OZ's on. I tend to use the Cordy if the weather is really bad anyway. Might invest in a set of 15 inch winter tyres for that as I've got some spare rims.

    In the same boat but with a 8P I bought some 15" A4 steel wheels and put some proper winter tyres on them ready before the prices shoot up

    i just keep same wheels on give the wheels a good clean i mean good clean!!!

    wheels off clean with wheel cleaner then 4 coats of poor boys wheel sealent leave for 2 hours each coat then clean off and wheels will last fine all winter.

    even polished lip etc saves buying new set of wheels for the sake of a days cleaning on wheels and a pot of wheel sealent which is £10
