About Ford Escort Tires

The Ford Escort is one of the most popular vehicles in the Ford stable. It has superb fuel economy, enabling great mileage on a single gallon of fuel. This vehicle is also affordable to maintain. It provides a great ride quality and competent handling. The type of wheels used will determine its performance and affect the ride quality. Your selection should depend on the season, performance required and the terrain of the road used. CARiD stocks a wide selection of Ford Escort tires to meet the broad needs of its customers. Tires are classified according to season and application. We have summer tires, which are used in warm weather and winter tires for cold climate. Winter tires demonstrate a high braking force and improved traction on icy roads. They are designed to withstand low temperatures and snowy tracks. Regular tires perform exceptionally well in urban roads. Those who love the great outdoors should acquire a set of all terrain tires to withstand the rough tracks out there. When traveling on a rough track, a run-flat tire allows you to continue with your journey even after your tire is damaged.

Ford Escort tires are made using the most innovative techniques to ensure the finished product meets the strident standards adhered to in the industry. Tire manufacturers use a host of different materials in the production process including natural rubbers, synthetic materials and compound chemicals. These are all geared to produce a product that has the best value for money. It is important to fit all your tires with a TPMS sensor to monitor air pressure and temperature on the tire. This sensor gives off a warning signal where significant deviations from the standard occur. All tires carry different tire tread patterns. These patterns have an impact on performance, hydroplaning resistance and economy. Tires should not be used endlessly. A time will come when you need to replace them. Failure to replace them may create problems associated with under inflation of tires and reduced thread life.

    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”.
