Hello I was wondering if it would be safe to put a set of 225 75 R16 inch set of tires on my Ford Escape 4x4. Thank you

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Julie Scroggins, Vice President, CFO at Waukegan Tire and Supply Company Inc. Hi Shelley, I would need to know the year and sub model of the Escape to know if the tires would fit the vehicle. Can you provide that information? Thank you, Julie

Pat Fleischmann, Director of First Impressions at Community Tire Pros & Auto Repair As always we recommend the manufacturers suggested tire size. You were suggesting a 225/75R17 this would not be an unsafe tire for your 2008 Ford escape, 4 x 4 . But our reference to the 2008 Ford escape would be the 225/65R17, your manufacturer recommends this size. Any certified tire dealer will guide you to the correct sizing for the best ride for that model of vehicle. Remember safety is always number one for you and your family. Pat Fleischmann
