Buy Tires for 1986 Porsche 944

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1986 Porsche 944 tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Porsche 944 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 the tires Porsche recommends for 1986 944s, plus useful info about Porsche 944 tire size, tire inflation, 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 944 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Porsche 944 snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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!) Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Porsche 944's safety and performance from January to December. 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 944 to the limits? 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 strong tires that can take on 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 plan on sticking around town, a Porsche 944 tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly 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're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1986 Porsche 944 tire for your needs.

1986 Porsche 944 Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Porsche 944 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check Porsche tire inflation? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Porsche 944 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 944 tires.
