Whether you want a tire that's built to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires GMC recommends for 1985 C3500s, plus helpful information about GMC C3500 tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new GMC C3500 tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of GMC C3500 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. 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 GMC C3500'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 GMC C3500 to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. You'll want tires that can stand up to 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 irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a GMC C3500 tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just 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 GMC C3500 tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1985 GMC C3500 tires.
