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  1996 Chevrolet Astro tires.

Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View Chevrolet-recommended tires for your 1996 Astro, plus helpful information about Chevrolet Astro tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Chevrolet Astro 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 Chevrolet Astro 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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Chevrolet Astro's safety and performance from January to December. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Chevrolet Astro to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in uneven road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Chevrolet Astro tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Chevrolet Astro tires online.

Questions About 1996 Chevrolet Astro Tires

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

  • Why does Chevrolet tire inflation matter? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • What do the numbers on my Chevrolet Astro tires mean? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Chevrolet tires!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Chevrolet tires at home? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Chevrolet Astro tires.
