Get the Right Tires for 1996 Subaru Legacy

Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1996 Subaru Legacy. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Subaru Legacy tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View Subaru-recommended tires for your 1996 Legacy, plus helpful information about Subaru Legacy tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. 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 Legacy tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Subaru Legacy snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one set for winter, one set for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Subaru Legacy'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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Subaru Legacy to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in irregular road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Subaru Legacy tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just 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 Subaru Legacy tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1996 Subaru Legacy tires.

  • Is there an easy way to check Subaru tire tread depth? 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.
