Get the Right Tires for 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan

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 why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2016 Volkswagen Tiguan. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Volkswagen Tiguan tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the tires Volkswagen recommends for 2016 Tiguans, plus helpful information about Volkswagen Tiguan tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Volkswagen Tiguan 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. 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.

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 for winter and one for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Volkswagen Tiguan's safety and performance from January to December. 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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Volkswagen Tiguan? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 tires that can stand up to sand, stone, gravel, dirt, 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 plan on sticking around town, a Volkswagen Tiguan 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 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan tires online now!

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan Tire Questions

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? 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 Tiguan tires? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Volkswagen tires!
  • Is there an easy way to check Volkswagen tire tread depth? 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 Tiguan tires.
