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 head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1987 Volkswagen Jetta. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Volkswagen tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 1987 Volkswagen Jetta, plus important information about Volkswagen Jetta tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Volkswagen Jetta tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, 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 summer and one for winter. That way, they can maximize their Volkswagen Jetta's performance during both seasons. 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Volkswagen Jetta to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 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 irregular road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Volkswagen Jetta 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 1987 Volkswagen Jetta tires online now!

  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Volkswagen Jetta tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Is there an easy way to check Volkswagen tire tread depth? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with a penny.

If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Volkswagen Jetta tires.
