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 Escort tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow 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 for winter and one for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Ford Escort's safety and performance from January to December. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you like taking your Ford Escort 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 tires that can stand up to 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 plan on sticking around town, a Ford Escort 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 few clicks away from finding the right 1989 Ford Escort tire for your needs.

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.

  • 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.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Ford Escort tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Is there an easy way to check Ford tire tread depth? 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 Escort tires.
