Buy Tires for 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

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  1997 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 take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the recommended tires for your 1997 Volkswagen Jetta, plus useful info 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.”

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 how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. 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.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. 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 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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you like taking your Volkswagen Jetta far away from civilization? 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 dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. 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 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. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1997 Volkswagen Jetta tire for your needs.

Good Tire Brands for Volkswagen Jettas

Firestone Complete Auto Care has plenty of good Volkswagen Jetta tire brands for you to choose from. Two of them are Firestone and Bridgestone. Volkswagen Jetta Firestone tires are tires you can count on. Harvey Firestone founded the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio in 1900. He was a boundary-pusher from the get-go.

Firestone is now one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world with 8,000 different tires for a variety of vehicles — including the 1997 Volkswagen Jetta.

His company merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1990. Bridgestone Tires now has more than 50 production facilities and 55,000 employees throughout the Americas!

1997 Volkswagen Jetta Tire Q&A

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.

  • Is Volkswagen tire inflation important? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Volkswagen Jetta? 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!
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Volkswagen tires? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with 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 Jetta tires.
