Affordable 1997 Mercury Cougar Tires

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1997 Mercury Cougar. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Mercury Cougar tire options. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the recommended tires for your 1997 Mercury Cougar, plus useful info about Mercury Cougar 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Mercury Cougar 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. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

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 for winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Mercury Cougar'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!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Mercury Cougar to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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 even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Mercury Cougar 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 Mercury Cougar tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1997 Mercury Cougar tires.

Tire Brands for Mercury Cougars

You have so many options when it comes to tire brands that work for Mercury Cougars. Firestone and Bridgestone are two popular brands. Mercury Cougar Firestone tires are tires you can count on. The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio by Harvey Firestone. He was a visionary from the start. Firestone recognized the overwhelming potential for automobile tires, so he started making and testing truck, passenger, and farm tires. One of the company's pioneering efforts was the introduction in 1908 of the first all-rubber, non-skid tire! Firestone Tires has been dedicated to staying one step ahead of the competition since day one, all thanks to Harvey Firestone. Firestone now makes about 8,000 different tires for all kinds of vehicles — including tires for 1997 Mercury Cougars.

Bridgestone is another smart move for Mercury Cougar tires. In 1931, Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan. In 1990, the company merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company. Today, Bridgestone Tires has more than 50 production facilities and 55,000 employees throughout the Americas! The company is a global leader in rubber products and tire technology, providing world-class service, tires, and more to communities worldwide. In the words of founder Shojiro Ishibashi, Bridgestone is dedicated worldwide to "serve society with superior quality." What are you waiting for?

1997 Mercury Cougar Tire Q&A

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

  • Why check Mercury 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 tire sidewall numbers mean for my Mercury Cougar? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Is there an easy way to check Mercury 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 Mercury Cougar tires.
