    If you had to drive your Mk7 1000+ miles on gravel/dirt...

    Thanks for all of the information! Based on responses, I am leaning toward getting 4 Firestone Weathergrip tires on 16 steelies (215/55R16). This will give me 34% more sidewall than what I currently have, and the tires will be decent to just throw on for upcoming winters, as well. They are a...
