View Volkswagen-recommended tires for your 2002 Beetle, plus helpful information about Volkswagen Beetle tire pressure, tire size, 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Volkswagen Beetle tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow 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.

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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Volkswagen Beetle's safety and performance from January to December. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Volkswagen Beetle? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Volkswagen Beetle tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Volkswagen Beetle tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2002 Volkswagen Beetle tire for your needs.
