Buy Tires for 1998 Subaru Forester

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 come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1998 Subaru Forester. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Subaru tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want a tire that's built to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Subaru recommends for 1998 Foresters, plus helpful information about Subaru Forester 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Subaru Forester tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow 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.

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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Subaru Forester'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 enjoy challenging the limits of your Subaru Forester? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in uneven road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Subaru Forester tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse Subaru Forester tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1998 Subaru Forester tires.

Firestone tires for Subaru Foresters always deliver! Harvey Firestone founded the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio in 1900. He was a passionate inventor from the get-go.

Questions About 1998 Subaru Forester Tires

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

  • Why check Subaru 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.
  • What do the numbers on my Subaru Forester tires mean? 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!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Subaru tires at home? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Subaru Forester tires.
