Summer wheels and tyres
The wheels of your Volkswagen play an important part in your driving safety – and make a real difference to the whole look of the car. With Volkswagen summer complete wheels, you’ll be well-prepared – as soon as temperatures exceed 7 °C, summer tyres are the clear winner.
Winter wheels and tyres
Below 7 °C? When the winter weather arrives, you should make sure you have the right winter tyres: specifically developed for colder temperatures, ice and snow. With the complete winter wheels from Volkswagen, you’ll always be well-equipped.
M+S or M/S and MS stands for mud and snow. Given that there are no winter test criteria for tyres that feature this label, every manufacturer can use it. It therefore only provides limited information on the winter properties.
The snowflake symbol, or alpine symbol, or 3PMSF symbol is mandatory for all winter tyres produced from 1st January 2018 onwards. This is because tyres with this symbol have passed a comparative braking test in snowy conditions. But no need to panic – if you already have winter tyres, they don’t need to be replaced immediately. There is a transition phase: M+S tyres that were produced prior to 31st December 2017 can still be used up until 30th September 2024.
All-season wheels and tyres
Also known as all-weather tyres: They combined balanced properties for both summer and winter weather conditions.
You save yourself the second set of tyres and don’t need to change them – sounds pretty good. All-season tyres are a compromise – they combine features of summer and winter tyres. However, given their qualities, they are generally inferior to summer or winter tyres when it comes to driving performance. The trade-off in design: Either winter performance or wet weather performance is improved at the expense of the other discipline.
Our wheels are characterised by a tailor-made wheel-tyre combination, which is perfectly matched – both visually and technically – to your vehicle. And by excellent contact with the road – thanks to our collaboration with leading tyre manufacturers.
Damp cellar air and improper storage cause your tyres to become porous and brittle: Our versatile tyre bag set prevents this from happening. Plus, thanks to the convenient marking on the outside, you know right away which tyre goes where. For further information please contact your Volkswagen Partner.
