There are 3 OE tires for the car, Ecopia 422 Plus, Kinergy GT and N Priz AH8.

No Revs per mile spec for the AH8, but the other 2 are 803 and 804.

PSAS4 is 791 in 225/50 and 815 in 215/50

One of the other OE sizes is @ 812 for the 422 Plus

225/45 is at 833, 205/50 is @ 828

I'd rather not go too wide.

Gotta look and see if I change the tire size with VCDS.

I urge you to avoid the Bridgestone Ecopia 422 Plus tire. Even though I had an alignment problem with my Tiguan. I surely will not purchase any in the future. That tire gets some pretty bad reviews on Bridgestone’s website. It looks like Honda CR-V and Lexus CUV owners have the most complaints.

No worries, I was only using that as a reference for size/revs per mile.

Strongly considering the PSAS4 in 215/50 its very close in overall size and also not a bunch wider (the thing gets 42 or so MPG) Their claimed improvement in snow traction should cover my limited light snow traction needs.

The CrossClimate 2 is also available in that size, but i still have a bit of a bad taste from Hydroedge noise from wear even with religious rotations. Only Michelin I ever owned I did not love.

The PSAS4 appears to be only asymmetric but not directional so I can rotate in my preferred pattern.
