View Lincoln-recommended tires for your 2012 MKZ, plus helpful information about Lincoln MKZ tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Lincoln MKZ tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Florida, 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 Lincoln MKZ 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!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Lincoln MKZ'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!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Lincoln MKZ? 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 strong tires that can take on 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 in irregular road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Lincoln MKZ tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Browse Lincoln MKZ 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 few clicks away from finding the right 2012 Lincoln MKZ tire for your needs.

2012 Lincoln MKZ Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Lincoln MKZ tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Is Lincoln 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.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Lincoln MKZ? 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 Lincoln tire numbers.
  • Is there an easy way to check Lincoln 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 Lincoln MKZ tires.
