How often should I replace the tires on My Ford?

Tires degrade over time depending on many factors such as weather, storage conditions, and conditions of use. Replace your tires if they are more than six years old, or if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Treadwear down to less than 3/32"
  • Bulges, blisters, or bubbles
  • Cracking in the tread grooves
  • Punctures, cuts, snags, or separation in the tire tread, shoulder, or sidewall
  • Sudden loss of tire pressure
  • Poor handling or traction on slippery surfaces
  • Pulling to one side while driving
  • Sudden vibration while driving
  • Damage while driving with a flat

You should also replace your spare tire when you replace the road tires or after six years due to aging even if it has not been used.

Refer to the "Wheels and Tires" section of your Owner's Manual for more information.
