2014 Volkswagen Jetta Flat Tire Repair Service

Get Your Volkswagen Jetta Tire Repaired

City populations are exploding. New roads and buildings are springing up. It seems construction is everywhere these days! New progress is exciting, but the road debris it leaves behind may mean trouble for your tires. If the road has been rough on your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta tires, Firestone Complete Auto Care can help. In some cases, a tire doesn’t have to be replaced – it can be plugged and patched with a simple repair. Depending on the damage, though, a repair might not be the right move. Our technicians can determine which option is best for your situation. We’ll begin by taking a look at where the damage is, the type and extent of the tire damage, and how all of your tires are wearing.

If your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta tire puncture can be repaired, we’ll get to work on the steps to fix it: (1) Separate the tire from the vehicle wheel, (2) fill in the area that’s been punctured to prevent damage from moisture, and (3) re-seal the inside lining of your tire so that air won’t escape.

Volkswagen Jetta Tire Replacement

Not all 2014 Volkswagen Jetta tire damage can be repaired. Even if your tire damage is minor, if your tires have less than 2/32nd inch of tread remaining, a repair isn’t possible (or safe). At this tread depth, the tire is worn out and must be replaced. Other tire damage that can't be safely repaired includes a puncture in the tire that is ¼ inch or greater in diameter; a tire with a puncture or damage outside the tread area; multiple punctures that are too close together (less than 16 inches between them); and a tire with cuts or tread separation.

Depending on what Volkswagen recommends for your car, you’ll want to consider purchasing one new tire, two new tires, or a new full set. For example, it’s usually recommended that you replace all four tires at the same time on AWD vehicles. Why? Because having four identical tires is vital for the AWD system to perform like it’s supposed to. Just replaced your tires and only one is damaged? You may not need to buy another new full set after all. If you can replace your damaged tire with the same type, brand, and size as the others, you may be able to save costs and only purchase one replacement. Need help? A tire technician can walk you through the options and help you determine what’s best for your vehicle’s performance and longevity.

Tire Inspection Services for Your Volkswagen Jetta

A flat tire? That’s pretty hard to ignore. But other tire damage? It’s not always obvious! Inconspicuous issues like bulging sidewalls, exhaust noise, leaks, or bent rims may indicate issues that need immediate attention. Stay ahead of potentially dangerous tire issues. Bring your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta in for a tire inspection.

Frequently Asked Volkswagen Jetta Tire Repair Questions

  • Can I drive my Volkswagen on a flat tire? Driving on a flat tire is not a good idea. Your Jetta engine will keep running with a flat tire, but you could damage your wheel by continuing to drive on a flat.
  • Can I use an emergency/temporary sealant to fix my Volkswagen's flat tire? Fast fixes are a mixed blessing. They’ll help you get your Volkswagen Jetta to Firestone Complete Auto Care, but don’t count on them to keep you on the road for very long. Using a temporary sealant may also void a Bridgestone or Firestone tire warranty.
  • How long can I drive my Volkswagen on a spare tire? Don't rely on your spare tire for too long. Your 2014 Volkswagen Jetta may come equipped with a compact spare tire. A spare is different than an everyday tire and is only designed to be driven a certain number of miles at lower speeds.
