View the tires Chevrolet recommends for 1986 Cavaliers, plus useful info about Chevrolet Cavalier tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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 Chevrolet Cavalier 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. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Chevrolet Cavalier snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Chevrolet Cavalier'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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Chevrolet Cavalier far away from civilization? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. 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 on bumpy roads. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Chevrolet Cavalier 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 Cavalier tires online. You can buy 1986 Chevrolet Cavalier tires online now!
