Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1999 Ford Contour tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Ford Contour tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 1999 Ford Contour, plus useful info about Ford Contour tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Ford Contour tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Ford Contour snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Ford Contour's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Ford Contour far away from civilization? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Ford Contour tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1999 Ford Contour tire for your needs.

1999 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.

  • Is Ford tire inflation important? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my Ford Contour tires mean? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Ford tires!
  • 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.
