View GMC-recommended tires for your 1988 Safari, plus useful info about GMC Safari tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new GMC Safari tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of GMC Safari snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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!) 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. That way, they can maximize their GMC Safari'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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your GMC Safari? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in uneven road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a GMC Safari 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 Safari tires online. You can buy 1988 GMC Safari tires online now!
