Why Change and Rotate Tires?

Tires are the foundation of your Volkswagen’s performance. In order to ensure optimal handling and performance in your Volkswagen, you should complete regular maintenance and get tire changes when needed.

This will ensure that your Volkswagen will perform with strong acceleration, stable cornering, and smooth braking, keeping up with all of your driving demands.

As you drive and your tires age, they will wear over time. We suggest changing your tires every six years, however driving habits can affect the lifespan of your tires. During your tires lifespan, you should get regular tire rotations every 7,500 miles. Tire rotations will help your tires wear evenly, helping to maintain the longevity of your tires and vehicle while ensuring optimal performance and safety.

 
 
 

Tire Changes And Rotations

Volkswagen Tire Types

There are several Volkswagen-approved tire types, each specifically designed for you and your vehicle’s needs. Most tires on Volkswagens are all-season tires designed to provide a smooth and quiet ride, traction during any season, and long tread life, however, some tires are designed for specific climates and tasks. Tires approved by Volkswagen include:

  • Volkswagen Approved All-Season Tires: The most common type of tire, designed to perform in all seasons. All-season tires feature an aggressive tread pattern and a unique composition that will provide reliable traction in most weather conditions, without sacrificing handling and cornering. If you often drive in a climate below 45º F, we recommend cold-weather tires.
  • Volkswagen Approved Cold Weather Tires: In temperatures below 45ºF, tires will lose traction, handling, and responsiveness. Volkswagen-approved cold weather tires are designed to provide control in colder climates, giving you the confidence and ability to drive in harsh weather conditions.
  • Volkswagen-Approved Summer Tires: In climates that commonly experience extreme heat, Volkswagen-approved summer tires may be the best for your vehicle. Summer tires are designed with a distinguishable detailed pattern that increases performance in hot, and dry conditions, as well as rain.
  • Volkswagen-Approved High-Performance Tires: If you have a desire for thrills, and the vehicle to match, high-performance tires may be best for your Volkswagen. Volkswagen-approved high-performance tires are engineered and tested to improve your Volkswagen’s ability to handle, and corner in good weather conditions.
