    Thread: Stock Tire Size for 96 Jetta GL

    1. 12-12-2002 03:49 PM #1
      Hey....

      What is the stock tire size for a 96 Jetta GL????

      Will a set of 185 65 x 14" work?

      They are for my Girlfriends car. I can get a real good price on these and she needs tires ASAP.

      That's the exact size I use for snows on my 97 Jetta TDI. Suspension is stock. I've never had any interference driving aggressively but I wouldn't wanna autocross with 'em.
      My doorjam sez stock is 185-60 and/or 195-60's. My summers are 195's.

      The stock size for a Jetta GL with manual transmission was 185/60 -14. A TDI or GL automatic used 195/60-14.

      Best thing is to check the owners manual or the door jamb sticker.

      VW has a habit of changing specs just for the hell of it.

      185/65 should be ok, speedo might be a bit off though.
      195/65 is too big.
