Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1996 BMW 318i tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for BMW 318i tire options. Whether you need a tire that's designed to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the tires BMW recommends for 1996 318is, plus helpful information about BMW 318i tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Your vehicle can't drive correctly without the correct tires. As one of our tire technicians, Brianna, explains, "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying BMW 318i tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want BMW 318i snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on BMW 318i's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your BMW 318i? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. You'll want a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in uneven road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a BMW 318i tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for BMW 318i tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1996 BMW 318i tires.
