Get the Right Tires for 1999 Porsche 911

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1999 Porsche 911. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Porsche tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you need a tire that's designed to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the tires Porsche recommends for 1999 911s, plus important information 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 consider a handful of other factors when buying new Porsche 911 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. 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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy pushing your Porsche 911 to the limits? 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 strong tires that can take on sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. 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 mostly drive around the city, 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 click or two away from a new set of 1999 Porsche 911 tires.

Good Tire Brands for Porsche 911s

Questions About 1999 Porsche 911 Tires

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.

  • Why check Porsche tire inflation? 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.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Porsche 911? 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!
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Porsche tires? 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 Porsche 911 tires.
