What kind of tires is recommended for my car? I've been using all season tires size 205/60/R15 (Hankook Optima H418). (BTW, Im asking for recommended brand(s) and size as well.

Asked by Nov 14, 2014 at 07:15 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen Passat GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Live in the Northeast - do get some snow etc.  Don't drive much but when I do it is usually
in short distances e.g. errands.  My current tires' tread wore out fairly quickly -- under
30,000 miles driven since tires purchased in Dec. 2007.

Use the size recommended for your vehicle. Brands I like to use are Continential, Firestone and Yokohoma. Goodyear and Michelin are also good tires. Go to www.tirerack.com and compare brands, plenty of reviews.

Pay attention to the tread wear ratings as you look at your tire choices. Also, the 2003 Passat standard tire size should be 195/65-15.
