Affordable 1987 GMC R3500 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 one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1987 GMC R3500 tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for GMC R3500 tire options. Whether you want a tire that's built to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View GMC-recommended tires for your 1987 R3500, plus useful info about GMC R3500 tire pressure, tire size, 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, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new GMC R3500 tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want GMC R3500 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 set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their GMC R3500's performance during both seasons. 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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your GMC R3500 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're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a GMC R3500 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 R3500 tires online. You can buy 1987 GMC R3500 tires online now!

1987 GMC R3500 Tire Questions

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common GMC R3500 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why does GMC tire inflation matter? 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 numbers on my GMC R3500 tires mean? 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.
  • Is there an easy way to check GMC tire tread depth? 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 R3500 tires.
