View the tires GMC recommends for 1987 R2500 Suburbans, plus helpful information about GMC R2500 Suburban 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying GMC R2500 Suburban tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. 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 R2500 Suburban 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. 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 R2500 Suburban'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 pushing your GMC R2500 Suburban 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 a tire that can handle gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a GMC R2500 Suburban tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly 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 R2500 Suburban tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1987 GMC R2500 Suburban tires.
