Buy Tires for 2016 Volkswagen Jetta

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2016 Volkswagen Jetta. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Volkswagen Jetta tire options. Whether you want a tire that's built to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View Volkswagen-recommended tires for your 2016 Jetta, plus important information about Volkswagen Jetta tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Other than getting the proper 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 Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter 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.

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. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Volkswagen Jetta's performance during both seasons. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Volkswagen Jetta far away from civilization? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 strong tires that can take on 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 plan on sticking around town, a Volkswagen Jetta tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Browse Volkswagen Jetta tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2016 Volkswagen Jetta tire for your needs.

2016 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.

  • Why does Volkswagen tire inflation matter? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Volkswagen Jetta tires? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Volkswagen tire numbers.
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Volkswagen tires at home? 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.
