Recommended Tires for Your 1987 GMC G3500

What tires are best for a 1987 GMC G3500? The following tire brands and types are a great fit for your GMC G3500.

Affordable 1987 GMC G3500 Tires

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1987 GMC G3500. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  GMC G3500 tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the recommended tires for your 1987 GMC G3500, plus helpful information about GMC G3500 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying GMC G3500 tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want GMC G3500 snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on GMC G3500's performance and safety throughout the year. 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 GMC G3500? 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 strong tires that can take on dirt, gravel, stone, sand, 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 plan on sticking around town, a GMC G3500 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 GMC G3500 tires online. You can buy 1987 GMC G3500 tires online now!

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common GMC G3500 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why does GMC tire inflation matter? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.

  • 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 G3500 tires.
