Get the Right Tires for 2002 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 one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  2002 Ford Escort tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Ford Escort tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want a tire that's built to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 2002 Ford Escort, plus important information about Ford Escort tire pressure, tire size, 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.”

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 Louisiana, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Ford Escort snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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. 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 Escort's performance during both seasons. 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!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you like taking your Ford Escort far away from civilization? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. You'll want a tire that can handle sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in uneven road conditions. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Ford Escort tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just 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 can buy 2002 Ford Escort tires online now!

Questions About 2002 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 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 tire sidewall numbers mean for my Ford Escort? 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.
  • 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.
