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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying 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 want to buy studdable snow 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!) It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Volkswagen Vanagon's performance during both seasons. 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? Hitting the road less traveled? 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. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in irregular road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Volkswagen Vanagon tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want.
