If it is a automatic have transmission fluid and filter changed.

Does anyone know were to buy tires for I have an 89 4 speed festivs

I put all fluids in and changed all filters.. and did a tune up...& you can use trailer 12 inch tires.. They won't sell them to you if you tell them it is for a car because it isn't allowed.. You have to buy them at Places like Walmart and put them on yourself... But you didn't hear this from me...
