Get the Right Tires for 1986 Buick Skyhawk

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1986 Buick Skyhawk tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Buick Skyhawk tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want a tire that's built to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View Buick-recommended tires for your 1986 Skyhawk, plus useful info about Buick Skyhawk tire pressure, tire size, 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Buick Skyhawk tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Buick Skyhawk's safety and performance from January to December. 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you like taking your Buick Skyhawk far away from civilization? 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 gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Buick Skyhawk 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 Buick Skyhawk tires online. You can buy 1986 Buick Skyhawk tires online now!

1986 Buick Skyhawk Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Buick Skyhawk tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check Buick tire inflation? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my Buick Skyhawk tires mean? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Buick tires at home? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Buick Skyhawk tires.
