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 one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1998 Volkswagen Jetta tires. 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 good tires that match your budget.

View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 1998 Jettas, plus helpful information about Volkswagen Jetta tire size, tire inflation, 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 which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Volkswagen Jetta snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen Jetta's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

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 a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, 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 in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, 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 1998 Volkswagen Jetta tires online now!

1998 Volkswagen Jetta Tire Questions

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.

  • Why check Volkswagen tire inflation? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • 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. 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.
