Buy Tires for 2018 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  2018 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 tires Volkswagen recommends for 2018 Passats, plus important information about Volkswagen Passat tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volkswagen Passat tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, 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 Passat 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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen Passat'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 Passat to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. 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 on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Volkswagen Passat tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Browse Volkswagen Passat 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 2018 Volkswagen Passat tire for your needs.

2018 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.

  • Why check Volkswagen tire inflation? 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.
  • 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.
