Get the Right Tires for 1996 GMC C1500

Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1996 GMC C1500. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for GMC C1500 tire options. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View GMC-recommended tires for your 1996 C1500, plus useful info about GMC C1500 tire size, tire inflation, 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new GMC C1500 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want GMC C1500 snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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!) 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. That way, they can maximize their GMC C1500's performance during both seasons. 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 like taking your GMC C1500 far away from civilization? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance on bumpy roads. But if you mostly drive around the city, a GMC C1500 tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1996 GMC C1500 tires.

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common GMC C1500 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Can I check the tread depth on my GMC tires at home? All you need is 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 GMC C1500 tires.
