Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2006 Audi A3. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Audi A3 tire options. Whether you want tire that's made to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the recommended tires for your 2006 Audi A3, plus important information about Audi A3 tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Audi A3 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Audi A3's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Audi A3? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in irregular road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Audi A3 tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Browse Audi A3 tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2006 Audi A3 tire for your needs.

Questions About 2006 Audi A3 Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Audi A3 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Audi A3? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Audi tire numbers.
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Audi tires at home? All you need is a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Audi A3 tires.
