Get the Right Tires for 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2012 Volkswagen Tiguan. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Volkswagen Tiguan tire options. Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 2012 Tiguans, plus helpful information about Volkswagen Tiguan 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Volkswagen Tiguan tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) 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 Tiguan'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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Volkswagen Tiguan to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 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 Tiguan 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're only a click or two away from a new set of 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan tires.

2012 Volkswagen Tiguan Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Volkswagen Tiguan tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check Volkswagen tire inflation? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Volkswagen Tiguan? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Is there an easy way to check Volkswagen tire tread depth? 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 Tiguan tires.
