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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Volvo 245 tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter 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.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. 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. That way, they can maximize their Volvo 245's performance during both seasons. 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 Volvo 245 to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in uneven road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Volvo 245 tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse Volvo 245 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 1986 Volvo 245 tires.
