Tire Information

Why Change to Winter Tires?  
You will benefit from increased traction and shorter stopping distances by using winter tires. These benefits apply on slush, ice, and wet snow-covered roads. When the temperature dips below 7°C, your safety depends on having good-quality winter tires.

1. Better Braking Distances

On dry pavement, with temperatures just below freezing, the stopping distance for vehicles equipped with winter tires is 30% less than vehicles with all-season tires.
2. Improved Vehicle Cornering

In a cornering comparison where both cars and SUVs had to make a 90-degree turn at 40 km/h, only the vehicles equipped with winter tires were able to complete the turn. 
    
 3. Better Traction

Winter tires have better traction on a snowy surface at temperatures of -40°C than all-season tires have at +4°C.
4. Decreased Aquaplaning Effect

Winter tires' tread design provides high-drainage capacity, which counters the danger of aquaplaning, which can occur when the road surface is wet or when there is standing water*.
    
 

When to Change to Winter Tires?  
   
Winter tires should always be used when the outdoor temperature is consistently below 7°C.

Tire Maintenance is important

Save Money by talking to our experts
Did you know? Under-inflated tires increase fuel consumption, and contribute to premature tire wear. Check your owner's manual, or tire sidewall for the correct tire pressure. Not sure how? Ask our Volkswagen Service Advisers on your next visit.




Extend your Tread Life
Regular tire rotations and wheel alignments extend the life of your tires and provide improved performance. Check your wheel alignment when you get a new set of tires, after a collision, or whenever you service suspension or steering components. Use the Volkswagen maintenance timeline to see the recommended service schedule for your vehicle.



Safety
Maintain a safe and reliable vehicle with regular inspections of tires, brakes and suspension. Replace worn out tires and keep your grip on the road. Bring in your vehicle to our service department for comprehensive inspection. Our service team will check your tread pattern, pressure and sidewalls to ensure your Volkswagen is ready for the road.
