Affordable 2012 Volkswagen Beetle Tires

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 2012 Volkswagen Beetle. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Volkswagen Beetle tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you need a tire that's designed to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the recommended tires for your 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, plus useful info about Volkswagen Beetle 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, 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 Florida, 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.

When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Volkswagen Beetle's performance during both seasons. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy pushing your Volkswagen Beetle to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 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 on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Volkswagen Beetle tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2012 Volkswagen Beetle tire for your needs.

2012 Volkswagen Beetle Tire Questions

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

  • Is Volkswagen tire inflation important? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Volkswagen Beetle tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Volkswagen tires at home? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with 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 Volkswagen Beetle tires.
