Get the Right Tires for 2011 Volkswagen GTI

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2011 Volkswagen GTI. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Volkswagen GTI tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want a tire that's built to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 2011 GTIs, plus useful info about Volkswagen GTI 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Volkswagen GTI tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. 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.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen GTI's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Volkswagen GTI? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want tires that can stand up to dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in irregular road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Volkswagen GTI 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 GTI tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2011 Volkswagen GTI tire for your needs.

2011 Volkswagen GTI Tire Q&A

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

  • Why check Volkswagen tire inflation? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Volkswagen GTI? 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!
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Volkswagen tires? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Volkswagen GTI tires.
