Plus, we’ve made some additional suggestions if you’re on a tight budget or if you’re shopping for suitable winter tires.

Best All-Season Tire for VW ID4
If you’re looking for capable all-season tires with plenty of long life our top pick is the Michelin Defender LTX MS. This tire is generally quite expensive but it comes with an impressively long 70,000 mile tread life warranty. It’s best claim to fame, however, is its impressive capability in the winter. It’s still far short of having winter tire-like grip, but the added siping on the tire makes it noticeably better in the cold and in light snow than almost any other all-season tire on the market.
Best All-Season Performance Tire for VW ID4
Like with out list of conventional all-season tires, our top picks for performance all-seasons starts with a Michelin and a Yokohama.
The Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3 Plus offers the lowest tread life rating of the bunch and is the most expensive. It’s also the best at delivering on the promise of driving dynamics combined with all-season capability.
From there the Yokohama, Pirelli and Continental are all quite equal when it comes to melding grip with all-season functionality, though each is more expensive than the next, making the Yokohama the best value of the bunch.

Tire Buying FAQ
Where can I find the best price on tires?
There is no one answer to this question unfortunately. Sites like Tire Rack and Discount tire offer deals all the time on specific brands.

When is the best time to buy tires?
It’s common that many shoppers buy tires once its already too late. At that point you don’t have a lot of choice and can often over-pay. If you’re planning ahead, generally, retailers offer significant tire deals around major holiday weekends (especially in the summer), as well as Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
How much is Shipping?
Shipping is often included when you purchase tires online. Many retailers offer free shipping if you get your tires shipped to an installer that they recommend. Even if you ship to your home, Tire Rack offers free shipping on purchases over $50. And if you’re buying new tires, that won’t be hard.
How long does shipping take?
Shipping can take just a few days, or over a week in the worst cases. Often it depends on where you live. anyone in a larger urban center or living closer to a tire distribution center can get them quite quickly.
Does anyone offer mobile tire installation?
Depending on where you live, there may be numerous local mobile tire installers available. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of tracking one down, TireRack offers its own service. You don’t even have to purchase tires from TireRack to use it.

Do I need to replace the tire pressure monitoring system when I change tires?
It’s not necessary to replace TMPS sensors when you change tires, but you may want to consider it. The units can fail over time due to damage or corrosion. Also, most units contain a battery and as a sealed unit, they must be replaced when the battery wears down. While most tire installers will handle sourcing these parts for you, you can also buy your own here.
Do online tire retailers offer rebates?
Absolutely! In fact, rebates are offered by most brands (even premium ones). Often these incentives are offered with other deals including up-front discounts and credit card offers.
