Winter or all-season tires?

Superior in soggy conditions

Winter tires’ deeper tread design allows for better drainage, countering the “aquaplaning” effect that can occur when driving through large puddles.

Timing is everything

When temperatures consistently hit below 7°C, the time is right to change your tires.

Wheel and tire packages

Remember to buy wheels when you purchase your tires. Volkswagen offers a wide selection of alloy and steel wheels to go along with your new tires, making it easier to install and uninstall, and store them each season.
