Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1996 GMC K2500 Suburban. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for GMC tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want a tire that's built to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 1996 GMC K2500 Suburban, plus important information about GMC K2500 Suburban tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. 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 think about a couple of other things when getting new GMC K2500 Suburban tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

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!) 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 GMC K2500 Suburban'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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy pushing your GMC K2500 Suburban to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 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 GMC K2500 Suburban 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 can buy 1996 GMC K2500 Suburban tires online now!

Questions About 1996 GMC K2500 Suburban Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common GMC K2500 Suburban tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why does GMC tire inflation matter? 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.

  • Can I check the tread depth on my GMC tires at home? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new GMC K2500 Suburban tires.
