View Volkswagen-recommended tires for your 2017 Golf R, plus useful info about Volkswagen Golf R tire pressure, tire size, 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Volkswagen Golf R tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. 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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen Golf R'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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you like taking your Volkswagen Golf R 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 strong tires that can take on dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Volkswagen Golf R tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse Volkswagen Golf R 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 click or two away from a new set of 2017 Volkswagen Golf R tires.

2017 Volkswagen Golf R Tire Q&A

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

  • Why check Volkswagen tire inflation? 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.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Volkswagen Golf R? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Volkswagen tires!
  • Is there an easy way to check Volkswagen tire tread depth? 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 Golf R tires.
