About Ford Escape Tires

The Ford Escape SUV combines style and performance in an awesome manner. It provides the luxurious comforts of a SUV with superb versatility and a lot of fun to drive. The SUV handles like a car and is capable of light duty off roader activity. Your tires pay a very important role. They connect the rest of the car to the road. Equipping it with the right set of tires will enhance its performance, safety and ride quality significantly. CARiD stocks a wide range of tires to meet the differing needs of its customers. They have stock upscale brands such as Pirelli and Michelin. They also keep the more affordable brands such as Nexen. The type of tire your car requires is determined by performance required, terrain, season and type of car you drive. Depending on the season, CARiD stocks summer tires to use during warm weather periods. They also carry winter tires, which suit snow and icy weather conditions. In addition, all season tires are made available to eliminate the need for a continual change between summer and winter tires.

Ford Escape tires are made from using innovative technology in the industry. They use a host of different materials including natural rubbers, synthetic rubbers, steel, compound chemicals and high tech fabrics. Regular tires may suffice along urban roads and freeways. However, for off road tours you will need all terrain tires to combat the rough tracks out there. CARiD also carries a run-flat tire that enables reasonable travel even with a damaged tire. No tire can last forever. A time will come when replacement is necessary. Failure to change tires promptly comes with different problems. Old tires have reduced threads, which hamper flow of air through the grooves resulting in increased heat buildup and failure. Also, worn out tires leak up more air than newer tires, thereby risking a blowout or a puncture. You need to install a TPMS sensor on each tire to monitor air pressure and temperature.

    New TPMS Sensors | The Best Choice With Your New Wheels & Tires
    Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensors (TPMS sensors) are fitted in place on the inner surface of your wheel, inside your tire. Attached to that sensor is a valve stem that protrudes outside the tire for the purposes of adding air. A built-in pressure detector monitors tire inflation at all times when the vehicle's ignition is on. That pressure detector has its own battery and transmitter which relays information to the car's main computer. Vehicle control systems read input from all four tires, and will alert the driver via a warning light if the pressure in any one of them drops 25% or more below a pre-determined level. The idea is to give a driver an "early warning" if any tires are low, so that the tire pressures can be corrected.

    Are Bigger Wheels Better Wheels?
    Replacing a standard size steel wheel with the same size of cast light alloy wheel improves performance and road-holding considerably, without any reduction in comfort. Further improvement in road-holding comes with increased wheel size, combined with a corresponding reduction in the height of the tire walls, a procedure called “Plus-Sizing”.
