View the recommended tires for your 1986 Chevrolet Corvette, plus useful info about Chevrolet Corvette tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. 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, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Chevrolet Corvette tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Louisiana, 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.

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. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Chevrolet Corvette's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Chevrolet Corvette to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 strong tires that can take on 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 irregular road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Chevrolet Corvette tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need.

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

  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Chevrolet Corvette? 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!
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Chevrolet tires? 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 Corvette tires.
