Get the Right Tires for 2009 Ford Escape

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 why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2009 Ford Escape. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Ford tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want tire that's made to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View Ford-recommended tires for your 2009 Escape, plus helpful information about Ford Escape 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Ford Escape tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. 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 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!) 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 Escape'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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Ford Escape? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want a tire that can handle gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in irregular road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Ford Escape tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Browse Ford Escape tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 2009 Ford Escape tires.

2009 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.

  • Is Ford tire inflation important? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Ford Escape? 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.
