Buy Tires for 2019 Volkswagen GTI

Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2019 Volkswagen GTI. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Volkswagen tires in all sizes, for all seasons. 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 Volkswagen-recommended tires for your 2019 GTI, plus important information 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volkswagen GTI tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, 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 GTI 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!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. That way, they can maximize their Volkswagen GTI's performance during both seasons. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Volkswagen GTI to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 a tire that can handle 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 irregular road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, 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 can buy 2019 Volkswagen GTI tires online now!

2019 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.

  • Is Volkswagen tire inflation important? 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 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.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Volkswagen tires? 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.
