That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Volkswagen Cabriolet tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 1988 Cabriolets, plus useful info about Volkswagen Cabriolet 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 Cabriolet 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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen Cabriolet's performance and safety throughout the year. 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 Cabriolet far away from civilization? 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 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're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Volkswagen Cabriolet tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just 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 Cabriolet tires online. You can buy 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet tires online now!

1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet Tire Questions

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 Cabriolet 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!
  • Is there an easy way to check Volkswagen tire tread depth? 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 Volkswagen Cabriolet tires.
