View Chevrolet-recommended tires for your 1997 Corvette, plus helpful 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, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Chevrolet Corvette tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, 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.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Chevrolet Corvette'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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Chevrolet Corvette? 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 strong tires that can take on sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in uneven road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Chevrolet Corvette 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 Chevrolet Corvette tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1997 Chevrolet Corvette tires.

1997 Chevrolet Corvette Tire Questions

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.

  • Why check Chevrolet tire inflation? 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 Corvette 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!
  • Is there an easy way to check Chevrolet tire tread depth? 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 Chevrolet Corvette tires.
