The Right Tire Options for Your Ford Vehicle

When it comes to how your vehicle runs, your tires play an incredibly vital role. This is why you need to make sure that you buy the right tires for it. There are a number of things you must consider when you are out shopping for tires for your vehicle.

At Strathmore Ford, we have a team of professionals who will provide you with information and assist you in choosing the right rims and tires for your new or used vehicle.

Find Your Vehicle's Tire Information Placard

One of the things you need to consider when buying new tires is your vehicle's trim level. This is necessary since manufacturers select different sizes of wheels and tires for different trim levels.

If you are not sure about the trim level of your vehicle, you can still find the correct OE (original equipment) tire size that the manufacturer specifies.

All you have to do is find your vehicle's tire information placard, which provides information about OE tire sizes, including the spare, and the tire inflation pressures recommended by the automaker. If you aren't sure about the right tire size for your car, simply head over to our Ford service department for assistance from the experts!

If you own a newer vehicle, like the 2018 Ford Explorer, you are likely to find the placard on the driver's side door jamb, called the B-pillar. If there is no B-pillar, look for it on the rear edge of the driver's door. If the edge is too narrow to attach anything, then the placard should be placed on a surface facing inward next to the driver's seat.

Older Vehicles

If you have an older vehicle, you may find the tire information placard in other locations such as:

  • The driver's side door or door jamb
  • Center console or glove box door
  • Rear doorjambs in Ford sedans
  • The engine compartment
  • Fuel filler door

Buying the correct tires for your vehicle ensures that it runs smoothly at all times. Visit Strathmore Ford for assistance in finding the right tires for your Ford vehicle.
