Affordable 1987 GMC R1500 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 come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1987 GMC R1500. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  GMC R1500 tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the recommended tires for your 1987 GMC R1500, plus important information about GMC R1500 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new GMC R1500 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want GMC R1500 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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. That way, they can maximize their GMC R1500's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your GMC R1500 to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a GMC R1500 tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse GMC R1500 tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You can buy 1987 GMC R1500 tires online now!

1987 GMC R1500 Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common GMC R1500 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check GMC tire inflation? 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.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my GMC R1500? 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.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my GMC tires? 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 R1500 tires.
