Get the Right Tires for 1996 GMC K3500

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 come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1996 GMC K3500. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  GMC K3500 tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the tires GMC recommends for 1996 K3500s, plus useful info about GMC K3500 tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying GMC K3500 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 K3500 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!) 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 K3500's safety and performance from January to December. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy pushing your GMC K3500 to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. 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're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a GMC K3500 tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Browse GMC K3500 tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You can buy 1996 GMC K3500 tires online now!

1996 GMC K3500 Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common GMC K3500 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why does GMC tire inflation matter? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my GMC K3500 tires? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read GMC tire numbers.
  • Can I check the tread depth on my GMC tires at home? 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 GMC K3500 tires.
