Get the Right Tires for 1998 Mazda Protege

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  1998 Mazda Protege. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Mazda Protege tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the tires Mazda recommends for 1998 Proteges, plus important information about Mazda Protege tire pressure, tire size, 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Mazda Protege tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Mazda Protege snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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. 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 Mazda Protege's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you like taking your Mazda Protege far away from civilization? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want tires that can stand up to 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 plan on sticking around town, a Mazda Protege tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse Mazda Protege 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 1998 Mazda Protege tire for your needs.

Tire Brands for Mazda Proteges

You have so many options when it comes to tire brands that work for Mazda Proteges. Two of them are Firestone and Bridgestone. Mazda Protege Firestone tires are tires you can count on. The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio by Harvey Firestone. He was a visionary from the get-go. Firestone saw a future in automobile tires, so he started making and testing truck, passenger, and farm tires. The company can be credited for introducing the first all-rubber, non-skid tire in 1908! Thanks to Harvey Firestone, Firestone Tires has been committed to staying ahead of the curve since day one. Firestone is now one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world with 8,000 different tires for a variety of vehicles — including the 1998 Mazda Protege.

Bridgestone is another smart move for Mazda Protege tires. In 1931, Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan. In 1990, the company merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company. Today, Bridgestone Tires has more than 50 production facilities and 55,000 employees throughout the Americas! The company is a global leader in rubber products and tire technology, providing exceptional service, tires, and more to drivers around the world. As Shojiro Ishibashi said, Bridgestone is dedicated worldwide to "serve society with superior quality."

1998 Mazda Protege Tire Questions

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

  • Is Mazda tire inflation important? 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.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Mazda Protege tires? 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 Mazda tire numbers.
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Mazda 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 Mazda Protege tires.
