Affordable 2017 Volkswagen Passat Tires

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2017 Volkswagen Passat. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Volkswagen Passat tire options. Whether you want a tire that's built to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 2017 Passats, plus important information about Volkswagen Passat tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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 Passat tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. 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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen Passat's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light 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 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 gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability on bumpy roads. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Volkswagen Passat 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 can buy 2017 Volkswagen Passat tires online now!

2017 Volkswagen Passat Tire Questions

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.

  • Why check Volkswagen tire inflation? 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 numbers on my Volkswagen Passat tires mean? 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.
  • Is there an easy way to check Volkswagen tire tread depth? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Volkswagen Passat tires.
