View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 2006 Beetles, plus important information about Volkswagen Beetle tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volkswagen Beetle tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Volkswagen Beetle snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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 summer and one for winter. That way, they can maximize their Volkswagen Beetle's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you like taking your Volkswagen Beetle far away from civilization? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. 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 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 click or two away from a new set of 2006 Volkswagen Beetle tires.
