Buy Tires for 1996 Ford Contour

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1996 Ford Contour tires.

Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Ford recommends for 1996 Contours, plus useful info about Ford Contour tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Your vehicle can't drive correctly without the correct tires. As one of our tire technicians, Brianna, explains, "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Ford Contour tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Ford Contour's performance during both seasons. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Ford Contour to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want strong tires that can take on dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in uneven road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Ford Contour tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Browse Ford Contour tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You can buy 1996 Ford Contour tires online now!

1996 Ford Contour Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Ford Contour tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check Ford tire inflation? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Ford Contour tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Ford tires? All you need is a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Ford Contour tires.
