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 1988 Volvo 244. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Volvo 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 recommended tires for your 1988 Volvo 244, plus important information about Volvo 244 tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volvo 244 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 Volvo 244 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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. That way, they can maximize their Volvo 244's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy pushing your Volvo 244 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. 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're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Volvo 244 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 Volvo 244 tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1988 Volvo 244 tire for your needs.

1988 Volvo 244 Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Volvo 244 tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why does Volvo tire inflation matter? 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.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Volvo 244 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 Volvo tire numbers.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Volvo tires? 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 Volvo 244 tires.
