Asked by Dec 03, 2015 at 12:24 PM about the 2005 GMC Safari 3 Dr SLE

Question type: General

Stock is 215/70-16.  Van is a little mushy so I would like to get a Light Truck

Depending on mileage you might want to look at new shocks as well....you can do some research on tires here...www.tirerack.com

I was looking for a more specific answer. Recommend a brand like Dunlap or General. Maybe use a 235/65-16 (same diameter as stock tire)! I have researched "tirerack" for hours but they just recommend the same as GMC 215/70-16. Thanks for your input!

I like Goodyear tires myself and have always had really good luck with them. Look for a tire with the LT rating. A mushy ride could be back shocks or saggy springs too. Check the air pressure in your tires. If they are P rated then you can run them at 35psi which is fairly firm.

I like to stick with stock or OEM tire size. Tires are a personal matter, some swear by their brands, you will get many opinions. Do you have a local tire shop in your area? You might want to pop in and ask them what they would recommend.
