Buy Tires for 2017 Volkswagen GTI

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 head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2017 Volkswagen GTI. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Volkswagen GTI tire options. Whether you want tire that's made to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 2017 Volkswagen GTI, plus helpful information about Volkswagen GTI tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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 GTI tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Louisiana, 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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase 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 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Volkswagen GTI far away from civilization? 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 tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. 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 mostly drive around the city, a Volkswagen GTI tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. 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 2017 Volkswagen GTI tires online now!

2017 Volkswagen GTI Tire Questions

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? 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 GTI? 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.
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Volkswagen tires at home? 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.
