Recommended Tires for Your 1986 GMC Safari

What tires are best for a 1986 GMC Safari? The following tire brands and types are a great fit for your GMC Safari.

Get the Right Tires for 1986 GMC Safari

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1986 GMC Safari tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  GMC Safari tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you need a tire that's designed 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 1986 Safari, plus important information about GMC Safari 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new GMC Safari tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. 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.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one set for winter, one set for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their GMC Safari'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 Safari to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a GMC Safari tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Browse GMC Safari tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You can buy 1986 GMC Safari tires online now!
