View the recommended tires for your 1983 Volkswagen Jetta, plus useful info about Volkswagen Jetta 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volkswagen Jetta tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Volkswagen Jetta snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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!) 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 one of the best ways to maximize their Volkswagen Jetta's safety and performance from January to December. 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Volkswagen Jetta? 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 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 on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Volkswagen Jetta 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.

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

  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Volkswagen Jetta? 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? 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 Jetta tires.
