Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1998 Nissan Altima tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Nissan Altima tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View Nissan-recommended tires for your 1998 Altima, plus useful info about Nissan Altima 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Nissan Altima tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. 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 for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Nissan Altima's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Nissan Altima? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. 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 mostly drive around the city, a Nissan Altima tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You can buy 1998 Nissan Altima tires online now!

Questions About 1998 Nissan Altima Tires

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

  • Is Nissan tire inflation important? 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.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Altima tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Nissan 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 Nissan Altima tires.
