View Pontiac-recommended tires for your 2009 Solstice, plus useful info about Pontiac Solstice tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Pontiac Solstice tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Pontiac Solstice 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 set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Pontiac Solstice'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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Pontiac Solstice far away from civilization? 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 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 irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Pontiac Solstice tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want.
