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  1986 Pontiac Firebird. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Pontiac Firebird tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View Pontiac-recommended tires for your 1986 Firebird, plus helpful information about Pontiac Firebird tire size, tire inflation, 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Pontiac Firebird tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter 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.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. That way, they can maximize their Pontiac Firebird'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 pushing your Pontiac Firebird 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 gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Pontiac Firebird tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just 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 Pontiac Firebird tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1986 Pontiac Firebird tires.

Questions About 1986 Pontiac Firebird Tires

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

  • Why does Pontiac tire inflation matter? 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 Pontiac Firebird 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 Pontiac tire numbers.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Pontiac tires? 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 Pontiac Firebird tires.
