Tried searching old threads and couldn’t quite find what I was looking for.
Is there a tire that is popular with escape owners that is a good balance between quality and cost savings? Not looking to spend an arm and a leg. Rears are cupping and I may Need suspension parts to go with the tires as well 🙄. Thanks for any suggestions.

2014 titanium 2.0 AWD

Need to know which model and year of your Escape in order to provide meaningful info.

ahh tires. everyones got an opinion.
it also depends on your intended use. is snow traction important? wet? dry? do you have separate winter tires? what is your climate? fuel economy? comfort /noise?

I'm a fan of continental DWS.

i dont think there is anything specific to teh Escape that merits special tires.

what i can reccomend is go to a website like tirerack.com, and look through their ratings. pick what best suits your priorities.

I just bought Continental Crosscontact LX 25 for my '14. Bought Continental Crosscontact LX 20 for my wife's previous generation, '12 Escape a couple of years ago. For something more sporty, bought Continental Extremecontact DSW 06 for her Audi TT roadster.

A friend at an Audi dealership mounted the DSWs for us, and he said that he has the same tire and like it a lot.

Tirerack lists the LX 25 as USA country of origin, too.

Really like the LX 25. Quiet. MPGs good, and should get better. Mileage wasn't great at the start until the surface was scuffed up a little and the release agent was gone. Mileage is consistent with the previous OEM Continental L.R.R. tire on there.

Put them on and went on a 1,400-mile round trip from MA to OBX. Will be doing another MA-OBX trip soon, and mileage should be better than the first trip.
