Volkswagen tyre pressure
MICHELIN Tyre Selector will help you find the recommended tyre pressure for your Volkswagen.
The MICHELIN Tyre Selector not only helps you find the right tyre for your Volkswagen but also provides the recommended tyre pressure for your Volkswagen. The most accurate way to get the tyre pressure information remains the indicator on the air valve and either the label on the inside front door of your car or the vehicle instruction manual. These references relate to the tyre pressure recommended by Volkswagen.
Step 1 : Enter the details of your Volkswagen vehicle
First, select the criteria specific to your Volkswagen using the MICHELIN Tyre Selector filters.
Each detail is important. In fact, in the Volkswagen Golf, the same model may have different inflation pressures depending on the engine, for example. So make sure to indicate the exact characteristics of your car. If in doubt, it is best to ask your dealer.
Then, click on "Check your pressure" to see the results
Step 2 : Find your Volkswagen's model tyre pressure
On the results page, scroll down slightly: the tyre pressure is indicated with the tyre size details near the car pictogram.
Please note that some car manufacturers often propose an alternative tyre pressure for particular winter tyres.
The stated tyre pressures are indicative values. The recommended tyre pressure for your vehicle is listed in the maintenance guide, displayed on a sticker on the inside front door (often passenger side) or even on the vehicles fuel cap.

Why is it important to check your tyre pressure regularly?
Since tyres naturally lose air (about 0.1 bar per month, or 1.45 PSI), regular pressure checks are necessary. We recommend checking the tyre pressure of your volkswagen once a month and before a long trip.
This way, you can avoid problems such as:
- higher fuel consumption
- premature and uneven tyre wear
- poorer road holding
- increased braking distance
Maintaining the tyre pressure recommended by volkswagen for your model will improve your safety on the road, as well as that of your passengers and other drivers.
Beyond the safety aspect, this simple action is better for the environment and saves you money, especially on fuel consumption.
