  1. New tires and lug nuts

    What Did you Do To Your Ford Escape Today
    After much soul searching on what tires to buy, and reading many tire reviews, I bought 4 new Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady tires, 235R55-17. I also had the shop replace the OEM lug nuts with McGard 64012, which I bought earlier but never installed. The shop foreman only had one comment on the...
  2. New 2018 Escape feels bouncy, is it the tires?

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    My 2018 Ford Escape SE 4WD seems to feel a little bouncy when I drive it. The roads here aren't so great but they are the same roads I drove every day in my previous sedan and I never noticed any bouncy feeling while driving. I don't think I'm imagining it. It sort of feels like I am being...
  3. Smallest rim size that will work for snow tires?

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    I just ordered a 2017 Escape with the 2.0l engine. It ships with either 18" or 19" diameter rims. I believe I can use 17" rims, but I would prefer to use 16" rims for winter tires if that diameter isn't too small for whatever might get in the way. Does anyone have any experience with this...

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Hi! I own Escape 2015 Titanium, AWD. I want to go to mountains soon and want to buy tire chains. I'm lost. My car has P235/50R18 Michelin tires. What chain vendor/type would you recommend me?

  7. Low tire pressure, not the indicator

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    I have been having a truly wonderful experience with my 2014 Escape Titanium until a few weeks ago when I first started seeing the "low tire pressure" indicator light come on, I took it to my dealer who topped up the air and sent me on my way. Since that time, it has progressively come on every...
  8. Bigger tire on 19" wheels

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    I bumped up the tire size with the help of a tire site, I really like the look of those bmw x5 and x6's with the optional chunky tire/wheel look, I mean I know they are running something stupid like 305's or something but still proportionally speaking a wider/taller tire might look good on my...
  9. '14 Escape SE - Bouncy ride?

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Last week I purchased a 2014 Ford Escape SE AWD. In the first 1000 miles, I notice a "bounce" with every bump and my coffee mug and other items in the passenger seat lightly bounce/vibrate continually. Also my head and body are alway bouncing. I took to the dealer and they did a suspension...
  10. Adding "regular" air to nitrogen-filled tires?

    3G Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension
    Good morning All! I've read various opinions on this subject and figured I would toss this question to the forum. I see my valve stems have the green caps which I presume means my tires are inflated with nitrogen. If I notice pressure loss in my tires, is it acceptable to bring the tires back...
