View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 1989 Jettas, plus helpful information about Volkswagen Jetta tire size, tire inflation, 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, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Volkswagen Jetta tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, 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.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. 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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Volkswagen Jetta? 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 Jetta tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just 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 1989 Volkswagen Jetta tires online now!
