View Volvo-recommended tires for your 1987 740, plus useful info about Volvo 740 tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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 consider a handful of other factors when buying new Volvo 740 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Volvo 740 snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.
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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Volvo 740's safety and performance from January to December. 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!
Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy pushing your Volvo 740 to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. 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 Volvo 740 tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Volvo 740 tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1987 Volvo 740 tires.
You have many great options for Volvo 740 tire brands when you visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. Two of them are Firestone and Bridgestone. Firestone tires for Volvo 740s always deliver! The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio by Harvey Firestone. He was a passionate inventor from the start. Firestone saw a future in automobile tires, so he began testing and producing farm, truck, and passenger tires.

Thanks to Harvey Firestone, Firestone Tires has been committed to staying ahead of the curve since day one.
