Buy Tires for 1998 Ford Escort

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  1998 Ford Escort tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Ford Escort tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the tires Ford recommends for 1998 Escorts, plus helpful information about Ford Escort 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.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Ford Escort tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. 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.

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. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Ford Escort's performance and safety throughout the year. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Ford Escort far away from civilization? 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 gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance on bumpy roads. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Ford Escort tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Ford Escort tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1998 Ford Escort tire for your needs.

Ford Escort Tire Brands

You have many great options for Ford Escort tire brands when you visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. Firestone and Bridgestone are two of the most popular. Ford Escort Firestone tires are tires you can count on. Harvey Firestone founded the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio in 1900. He was a visionary from the beginning.

1998 Ford Escort Tire Questions

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 does Ford tire inflation matter? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my Ford Escort tires mean? 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!
  • Is there an easy way to check Ford tire tread depth? 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.
