Get the Right Tires for 2001 Ford Escape

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2001 Ford Escape. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Ford Escape tire options. Whether you need a tire that's designed to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View Ford-recommended tires for your 2001 Escape, plus useful info about Ford Escape tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Ford Escape tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Ford Escape snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. That way, they can maximize their Ford Escape's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Ford Escape to the limits? 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 a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in irregular road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Ford Escape tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly 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 click or two away from a new set of 2001 Ford Escape tires.

2001 Ford Escape Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Ford Escape 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.
  • What do the numbers on my Ford Escape tires mean? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Ford tire numbers.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Ford tires? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with 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 Escape tires.
