Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Ford Tempo tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Ford Tempo snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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 a smart way to capitalize on Ford Tempo's performance and safety throughout the year. 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 enjoy pushing your Ford Tempo to the limits? 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 tires that can stand up to 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 plan on sticking around town, a Ford Tempo 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 can buy 1987 Ford Tempo tires online now!
