Got the Dallas GTI stock tires on and the car handles much better. It does seems a little slower 0-30mph but nothing major.
Range difference is minimal so far.
Car looks MUCH better.

Put Conti WinterContact SI on CRW alloy rims for the winter, stock sizes. Fit fine, no problems, look great. No snow or ice yet, but much better in the rain. They also seem quieter than the Ecopias. No difference I can feel in handling, but the grip is great (I'm running them at 43 psi vs. the recommended 41 psi). Maybe 10% penalty in range, but hard to quantify because of increased use of heater, lights, wipers etc.

Driven in the snow now, absolutely great grip. Thoroughly recommend.

Just my 2 cents...

I recently installed Michelin X-Ice Snow tires on cheap alloy wheels (the dealer could not find compatible steel wheels) for my 2019 e-Golf. I was rather surprised to see no noticeable decrease in range during the first couple of drives. Perhaps this should not be surprising, since these tires have very low rolling resistance. I have not yet encountered snow or ice, but I am sure they will do much better than the stock Ecopias.
