About Ford Explorer Tires

Your first ride in a Ford Explorer is something you’re unlikely to ever forget. It has a comfortable ride quality and a stylish persona that breathes freshness with its every move. It’s affordable and versatile in nature. Your family would feel quite at home in this vehicle. The tires you select for it affect the comfort level and ride quality of your car. The appropriate tires for your car depend on the season and terrain you will be travelling on. CARiD stocks a wide selection of Ford Explorer tires targeting the differing needs of its varied customer base. They stock up market brands such as Pirelli and Michelin while also carrying the more affordable ones such as Nexen. Regular tires may suffice on your regular urban travels. However, you will need different tires for your off roader tours. This is where the all terrain tires come in to the play. They are designed to withstand the rough tracks associated with the great outdoors. You also need to keep a run-flat tire because such a tire facilitates a safe drive even with a damaged tire on tow.

Warm weather also comes with its challenges. A set of summer tires are ideal for such a climate. Winter tires on the other hand are ideal for snowy weather. They have a high braking force on icy roads. These tires also provide superb traction on ice and snow. Tire manufacturers have also developed all season tires for regions with short winter periods. These tires present an economic advantage because they eliminate the need for continuous changeover of tires between summer and winter. Most Ford Explorer tires come with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor installed to monitor the air pressure and temperature of your tire. This device transmits a warning signal when significant deviations from the standard pressure level in the tire occur.

    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.

    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”.
