Buy Tires for 2009 Volkswagen Passat

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  2009 Volkswagen Passat 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 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 2009 Volkswagen Passat, plus important information about Volkswagen Passat tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volkswagen Passat tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Volkswagen Passat snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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 for summer and one for winter. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Volkswagen Passat's safety and performance from January to December. 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 enjoy pushing your Volkswagen Passat to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in irregular road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Volkswagen Passat 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 2009 Volkswagen Passat tires online now!

2009 Volkswagen Passat Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Volkswagen Passat 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.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Volkswagen Passat 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.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Volkswagen tires? All you need is 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 Passat tires.
