Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
I bought a 1998 VW basic Jetta a year ago.....that came with cheap but new tires 195 60 14. Winter is bad here in the Midwest.......and I need to go with winter tires.
I found a used set of Blizzak for Honda/Toyota size 185 60 14 that is cheaper than gettings new Blizzak put on my car just for the winter.
Tirerack lists size 185 60 14 as an alternate for my car.....one large tire store employee told me my speedometer would be off....and only recommends the 195 60 14.
I might prefer to go to an all season radial if there is a good one out there. When I bought replacement all season tires for my 97 Passat, the all season radial worked for my needs. The original tire was not available.....but a tire close in size was.

I use Riken Raptor all weather tires and they work great and go for about 60 a tire. Not bad 60k warrenty. :) I love them.

The 185 60 14s will work great (speedometer will be off approximatley 5 mph). Used tires are always a risk, but blizzaks are great winter tires.
