Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volkswagen Vanagon tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Louisiana, 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 Vanagon snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. 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 a smart way to capitalize on Volkswagen Vanagon'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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Volkswagen Vanagon to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in uneven road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Volkswagen Vanagon 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're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon tire for your needs.
