About Ford Five Hundred Tires

The Ford Five Hundred is a favorite car among small families. It has a spacious cabin that comfortably accommodates four or five people. This vehicle has a high seating position allowing the driver to have a commanding view of the road. It has a powerful engine and an exciting ride quality. However, you can enhance the performance levels and ride quality by installing the right set of tires. CARiD stocks top quality tires from the most reputable brands in the country. They carry up market brands such as Pirelli and Michelin and the more affordable variety such as Nexen. The appropriate tire for your car is determined by several factors such as the type of vehicle you are driving, the prevailing season, the condition of the road you are using among other factors. A regular tire will generally suffice on many paved roads. However, if you decide to take a tour on the rough tracks of the great outdoors then you need a set of all terrain tires. A set of run-flat tires would even be better because they allow you to drive safely even with a damaged tire.

Ford Five Hundred Tires are made from a combination of different materials including natural rubbers, synthetic rubbers, chemical compounds and other materials. They use innovative techniques to ensure that the final product meets with the expectations of the market. To enhance safety on the road, all tires require a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor. This device measures, identifies and warns the driver where a tire suffers significant under-inflation. This allows the driver to take remedial action. Tires are designed to provide efficient service for a specific period. After the expiry of such a period, you need to change the tires. Reduced tire threads affect the cooling effect brought about by air flowing through the tire grooves. There is also a higher rate of under-inflation in worn out tires compared to newer tires.

    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.
