View the recommended tires for your 1985 Porsche 911, plus useful info about Porsche 911 tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Porsche 911 tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Florida, 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 Porsche 911 snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Porsche 911'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 Porsche 911 far away from civilization? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Porsche 911 tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly 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 Porsche 911 tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1985 Porsche 911 tire for your needs.

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Porsche 911 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Is Porsche 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 Porsche 911 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 Porsche tire numbers.
  • Is there an easy way to check Porsche tire tread depth? 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 Porsche 911 tires.
