Get the Right Tires for 1996 GMC Safari

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  1996 GMC Safari tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for GMC tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want a tire that's built to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 1996 GMC Safari, plus helpful information about GMC Safari tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying GMC Safari tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, 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.

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 one of the best ways to maximize their GMC Safari's safety and performance from January to December. 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 pushing your GMC Safari to the limits? 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 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 uneven road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a GMC Safari tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. 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 1996 GMC Safari tires online now!

Harvey Firestone started the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1900 in Akron, OH. He was a passionate inventor from the start. Firestone recognized the untapped potential for auto tires, so he started making and testing farm, truck, and passenger tires.

Firestone now makes about 8,000 different tires for all kinds of vehicles — including tires for 1996 GMC Safaris.

Bridgestone is another smart move for GMC Safari tires. Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. was founded by Shojiro Ishibashi in Japan in 1931 and merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1990.

1996 GMC Safari Tire Q&A

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

  • Is GMC tire inflation important? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my GMC Safari 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.
  • Can I check the tread depth on my GMC tires at home? 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 Safari tires.
