About Ford Excursion Tires
The Ford Excursion is a favorite among families. It’s not difficult to see why. This vehicle has a spacious cabin, attractively styled to provide a comfortable ride quality. It has a powerful engine and an incredible towing capacity. Providing the most appropriate wheels for your car will go a long way in ensuring superb performance, safety and an acceptable ride quality. CARiD stocks Ford Excursion tires from the most reliable brands in the industry. They carry high-end merchandise from prestigious entities such as Pirelli and Michelin. They also stock the more affordable brands to meet the demands of budget-minded customers. One may want to imagine that any tire can work on all types of roads and in all seasons. However, this is not the case. There are different types of tires made to suit specific seasons and conditions. For instance, summer tires are suited for warm weather. Winter tires on the other hand function best in low temperature regions. They have a high braking force and possess amazing traction on snow and ice.
Regular tires will perform well on regular roads in urban areas. However, if you wish to take off on some off roader tour in the countryside then you need a set of all terrain tires. These tires are equipped to handle the rough tracks in the wilderness. You may also want to have a run-flat tire to use. This type of wheel allows you to move on even with a damaged tire. In all situations ensure that you have fitted a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor on each tire to monitor the status of each wheel. This device sends off data to the vehicle’s computer regarding air pressure and temperature. Your tires should always be in good condition. Typically, the tire threads are affected by the age of the tire. Reduced threads hamper the flow of air through the grooves thereby leading to heat buildup. This affects the performance of the tire in a negative manner.

- TPMS SensorsNew TPMS Sensors | The Best Choice With Your New Wheels & TiresTire 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.
