That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  2018 Volkswagen Golf R tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Volkswagen Golf R tire options.

View the recommended tires for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf R, plus helpful information about Volkswagen Golf R tire pressure, tire size, 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 Golf R tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. 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 Golf R 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 for winter and one for summer. That way, they can maximize their Volkswagen Golf R's performance during both seasons. 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 pushing your Volkswagen Golf R to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 a tire that can handle sand, stone, gravel, dirt, 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 in irregular road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Volkswagen Golf R tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Volkswagen Golf R tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2018 Volkswagen Golf R tire for your needs.
