Ford Focus>> Wheels and tires



The behavior of the car substantially depends on tires on the road and active traffic safety. At average loadings the resource of tires of the Focus car usually makes 30 000 — 50 000 km for forward wheels and about 40 000 — 70 000 km — for back. If you use the car mainly for short trips, you should replace tires regardless of residual depth of a profile no later than through everyone seven or eight years. During this time dirt, chemical influence of the environment, internal processes of aging and not least the sun so wear out tires that they cannot reliably perform the work any more. Do not trust old tires, even then, when they look as new, appearance — it only a facade.
Ford equips the cars with two types of wheels: according to a complete set and model are established either steel disks, or disks from an easy alloy by dimension 5Jx15" or 6Jx15". Light-alloy wheels are delivered, as a rule, in the size 6Jx15". Our table shows the sizes which are provided by Ford as a standard complete set or as an additional option. What sizes of tires and disks are acceptable for your car, is specified in the maintenance instruction. If will wish to change tires and disks, they should be certificated with the corresponding reference to a standard. If the sizes are not specified in the maintenance instruction, learn in the service center Ford. Disks and tires which are not specified in factory documents your car, should be brought in them in the form of a mark at official station of technical inspection.
