Get the Right Tires for 2008 Ford Escape

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2008 Ford Escape. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Ford Escape tire options. Whether you want a tire that's built 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 2008 Escapes, plus helpful information about Ford Escape 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 Escape 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.

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 set for winter, one set for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Ford Escape's safety and performance from January to December. 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 like taking your Ford Escape far away from civilization? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. You'll want a tire that can handle 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 on bumpy roads. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Ford Escape 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 2008 Ford Escape tire for your needs.

2008 Ford Escape Tire Questions

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 tire sidewall numbers mean for my Ford Escape? 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!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Ford tires at home? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Ford Escape tires.
