Points taken and well made!
Living in Poole, we don't know what snow is so admit I am somewhat ignorant of theses matters! :lol:

You do need to inform your insurance just in case. According to the ABI, as long as you are using the recommended sizes then it is not treated as a modification.

However, if you put alloys on with winters some will treat it as a modification as you have put different alloys on - depends on your insurance company.

Better play safe and inform them, but if they try to charge you more then complain and escalate.

Not all insurers will need notification of going onto winters as long as you keep to OEM sizes. Best to check the ABI list via the link above.

I've little else to add as Andyvee has pretty much said it all.

I am intrigued as to why you put Cross Climates on steel wheels for the winter.
If you are worried about the winter, why did you not simply put Cross Climates on the Triglavs?
The hint is in Michelin's name ;) CROSS CLIMATE.
Road test have proved that they perform brilliantly winter or summer. That is what they were designed for.

Easy...

Mine were free from Skoda so I took what they gave me :D

Do you mind me asking how much were the steel rims? I can't decide whether to go for second hand alloys (well nearly new as some are for sale here) or get the Steels. On my Superb I got a set of almost new alloys, but on the furry we have steels.

I like the idea of these steelies and first time I've seen VAG 17" ones. Could someone please share the OEM part number for the rims, to help me source from a local dealer?

Thanks!

Not that I’ve used them, but my local dealer offers a winter wheel/ summer wheel swap over service if you buy winter wheels.
