Affordable 1996 Volkswagen Jetta Tires

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1996 Volkswagen Jetta. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Volkswagen Jetta tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you need a tire that's designed to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 1996 Jettas, plus helpful information about Volkswagen Jetta tire pressure, tire size, 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, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Volkswagen Jetta tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. 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.

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 set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen Jetta's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Volkswagen Jetta? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 strong tires that can take on gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, 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.
