Volkswagen Jetta Spare Tires

The Volkswagen Jetta used 4x100 mm, 5x100 mm and 5x112 mm bolt pattern variations from 1980 to 2024 along with tire diameters ranging from 22.6" to 26.0" tall. Using a temporary compact spare tire with a diameter close to the standard tire has many benefits, especially for modern vehicles with larger brake calipers and anti-lock brakes or traction control systems.


The tire diameter and the wheel diameter clearance have been taken into account for the specific Volkswagen Jetta years and options. In this case, 125/80R15, 125/70R17, 125/80R17 and 165/70R17 spare tire sizes are used to avoid vehicle components while closely matching the original tire size diameters. We've provided a breakdown by vehicle generation and model specifics to help you find the correct Volkswagen Jetta spare tire.
