Get the Right Tires for 1987 GMC R2500

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 R2500. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  GMC R2500 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 the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires GMC recommends for 1987 R2500s, plus important information about GMC R2500 tire size, tire inflation, 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new GMC R2500 tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, 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 a smart way to capitalize on GMC R2500's performance and safety throughout the year. 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 R2500 to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in uneven road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a GMC R2500 tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Browse GMC R2500 tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1987 GMC R2500 tire for your needs.

Questions About 1987 GMC R2500 Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common GMC R2500 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check GMC tire inflation? 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? 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 R2500 tires.
