Ford tyre information

With 100 years of manufacturing to its name Ford has become the most popular car maker in the UK. From small city cars and hatchbacks to first class family vehicles, Ford has a car for every motorist. Ford also owns a small stake in Mazda in Japan and Aston Martin in the UK.

Ford works with leading manufacturers to make sure your tyres meet the very highest standards of quality and safety and are designed to fit and perform perfectly with the car. Many motorists choose to retain the original tyre choice when replacing worn Ford tyres, but for those who don't etyres can recommend a number of suitable replacement tyres depending on your model and driving preferences.

Changing Ford tyres

If your current Ford tyres are near the legal minimum tread depth of 1.6mm or the recommended minimum of 3mm it is important that they are changed to ensure safe handling and control. When changing Ford tyres you should consider the following three factors to ensure you get the most appropriate tyre for your needs.

  • Look at the overall quality of the tyre including durability, cost and tyre label ratings
  • Take into account your average and occasional fastest-driven speeds when deciding on a speed rating
  • Decide is local and/or regional weather patterns merit keeping two sets of tyres for dry vs. wet road conditions

    If you are looking to change the wheel size of your Ford you need to ensure that the tyres will be valid and not damage the drive train. If, for example, a larger wheel size is desired, then the profile (height) and/or the width must be reduced to avoid damaging the drive train. A 195/65/15 tyre for that Ford, for instance, on a 17" rim, could legitimately become a 165/65 (narrower) or a 195/55 (shorter) but could not stay a 195/65 as before. Use our handy tyre size calculator to find out what size Ford tyres are suitable.

    When changing your Ford tyres it is important that they are re-fitted using the correct amount of pressure to tighten the wheel nuts. This pressure setting is called torque and the settings for the most popular Ford models can be found in the chart here.
