Affordable 1986 Ford Escort Tires

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 head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1986 Ford Escort. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Ford Escort tire options. Whether you want a tire that's built 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 1986 Escort, plus useful info about Ford Escort tire size, tire inflation, 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, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Ford Escort tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Ford Escort snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Ford Escort'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 Escort 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 a tire that can handle sand, stone, gravel, dirt, 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 Escort 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 click or two away from a new set of 1986 Ford Escort tires.

Ford Escort Tire Brands

Firestone Complete Auto Care has plenty of good Ford Escort tire brands for you to choose from. Two of them are Firestone and Bridgestone. Ford Escort Firestone tires are tires you can count on. The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio by Harvey Firestone. He was a passionate inventor from the start. Firestone recognized the overwhelming potential for automobile tires, so he began testing and producing truck, passenger, and farm tires. Fun fact: in 1908, Firestone's company introduced the first all-rubber, non-skid tire! Thanks to Harvey Firestone, Firestone Tires has been committed to staying ahead of the curve since day one. Today, Firestone is one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world. They make 8,000 different tires for all sorts of vehicles — including 1986 Ford Escorts.

You can't go wrong with Bridgestone for Ford Escort tires, too. Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. was founded by Shojiro Ishibashi in Japan in 1931 and merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1990. Today, Bridgestone Tires has more than 50 production facilities and 55,000 employees throughout the Americas! The company remains an international leader in tire and rubber technology, delivering outstanding tires, service, and more to drivers worldwide. As Shojiro Ishibashi put it, Bridgestone is dedicated worldwide to "serve society with superior quality." That means you can find superior quality Bridgestone tires for a 1986 Ford Escort and drive with peace of mind.

Questions About 1986 Ford Escort Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Ford Escort 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 Escort tires? 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? 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 Escort tires.
