Volkswagen Jetta Tire Size

Compact cars like the VW Jetta are always fun to drive. They offer a sporty style and the performance to back it up. While it can turn on a dime, your traction is only as good as the tires you’re driving on. To help drivers in Toms River, Brick, and Freehold buy the right set, Toms River Volkswagen takes a closer look at the Volkswagen Jetta tire size.  Contact us today for more information.

Volkswagen Jetta Tire Size

VW Jetta Tires

The VW Jetta is compatible with both 16- and 17-inch wheels. Your tire size depends on which trim level you’re driving. The first few trims run on 16-inch wheels, while the R-Line and SEL Premium both have bold 17-inch tires.

How Often Will I Need New Tires?

The tires on your Volkswagen Jetta can last a long time, or just a couple years. It all depends on how you treat them. For example, aggressive drivers who stop suddenly and speed around corners usually need new tires before drivers who come to a safe, gradual stop.

Keeping up with your routine maintenance is another big factor. If you get your tires rotated regularly and have your tires pressure checked, they can last anywhere about five to 10 years. Falling behind on your maintenance can cause your tires to wear out faster.

Plus, there’s always the chance that you might be a safe driver but drive over a nail and need new tires sooner.

Tire Care

Whenever you bring your Volkswagen Jetta in for maintenance, a service technician will check the tread and determine whether to replace your tires or rotate them. Getting your tires rotated helps the tread wear evenly. This helps each tire last longer and gives you more reliable traction. They’ll also check your air pressure.

There are also some simple ways to take care of your tires at home. If you aren’t sure when your last tire rotation was, just follow these simple steps to check your wheels.

  • Inspect the Tread – Healthy tread has a dull, matte finish. Tread that’s been worn down often looks shiny. If you can’t tell by looking at it, try running your hand over the tread. If it feels smooth, that means the tread is has worn down. New tires have a textured feel, like the bottom of a new running shoe.
  • Look at the Sidewall – Always check to see if you’re riding low, notice any bulging, or tearing.
  • Check the Tire Pressure – If a tire looks like it’s riding low, or you see the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light turn on, you should probably check your tire pressure. You can find the recommended PSI rating in your owner’s manual or on a sticker on the door jamb.
