I had them on 16" wheels for my '03 GTI VR6. I sold the car in April and just sold the rims and snows to another VW owner.

I thought they were a perfectly fine winter tire, I would definitely buy them again.

snow tires usually do better with a bit less pressure in them

if going up in pressure doesnt work....try 30/29
