Affordable 2016 Volkswagen GTI 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 2016 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 improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View Volkswagen-recommended tires for your 2016 GTI, plus important information about Volkswagen GTI tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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 GTI tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Volkswagen GTI snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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. 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 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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you like taking your Volkswagen GTI far away from civilization? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 in uneven road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Volkswagen GTI tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. 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 can buy 2016 Volkswagen GTI tires online now!

2016 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? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my Volkswagen GTI tires mean? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Volkswagen tire numbers.
  • 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 GTI tires.
