Affordable 1986 Subaru GL Tires

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 Subaru GL tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Subaru GL tire options. Whether you want tire that's made to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Subaru recommends for 1986 GLs, plus helpful information about Subaru GL tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Subaru GL tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Subaru GL 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 for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Subaru GL'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 Subaru GL far away from civilization? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Subaru GL tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. 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 Subaru GL tire for your needs.

1986 Subaru GL Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Subaru GL 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 tire sidewall numbers mean for my Subaru GL? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Subaru tires!
  • Is there an easy way to check Subaru 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 Subaru GL tires.
