Types of Tyres

Stay in touch with the road

Your tyres are your only contact with the road - and each tyre touches an area roughly the size of your hand. The best place to get the correct tyres for your car is your Ford Dealer/Authorised Repairer. Our specialists advise and guide you in considering the right choice of tyre, offer brand names at attractive prices and check all safety components during the course of tyre fitting.

    Keep cool and in control. Especially in cold weather.

    We recommend using winter tyres when temperatures drop to 7º C or below, because winter tyres contain a special compound that doesn’t get stiff when temperatures drop.
