Buy Tires for 2001 Ford Escort

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 come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2001 Ford Escort. 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 improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the tires Ford recommends for 2001 Escorts, plus helpful information about Ford Escort tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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 think about a couple of other things when getting new Ford Escort tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, 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 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 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 enjoy pushing your Ford Escort to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 strong tires that can take on dirt, gravel, stone, sand, 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 comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse Ford Escort 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 2001 Ford Escort tires.

2001 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 check Ford tire inflation? 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 numbers on my Ford Escort tires mean? 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.
  • 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 Escort tires.
