Get the Right Tires for 2009 Audi A3

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  2009 Audi A3 tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Audi tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want tire that's made to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 2009 Audi A3, plus important information about Audi A3 tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Your vehicle can't drive correctly without the correct tires. As one of our tire technicians, Brianna, explains, "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying 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 studded snow tires anytime soon. 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.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one for winter and one for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Audi A3's safety and performance from January to December. 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 pushing your Audi A3 to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in uneven road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Audi A3 tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. 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 2009 Audi A3 tire for your needs.
