View the recommended tires for your 1987 Chevrolet Corvette, plus important information about Chevrolet Corvette 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.”
Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Chevrolet Corvette tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. 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 Corvette snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.
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 for winter and one for summer. 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!
Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Chevrolet Corvette to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want a tire that can handle sand, stone, gravel, dirt, 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 plan on sticking around town, a Chevrolet Corvette tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need.
