The Ford Explorer is a popular mid-sized SUV known for its excellent handling in all sorts of weather as well as its ample space, making it a great family vehicle. However, the tires are the real foundation of this vehicle, and finding the perfect tires for sale for your Explorer may require some time and consideration along with the help of a tire dealer near you. Consider one of the following options depending on the trim level of your SUV.

18-Inch Tires For  Ford Explorer

The Base and XLT trim levels of the 2016 Ford Explorer both have 18-inch rims. The Cooper Discoverer HTP is a budget-friendly but still dependable tire that is one of the top-rated options when it comes to quiet rides. Continental CrossContact LX20 and Michelin Defender LTX M/S are also excellent all-season tires for your Explorer.

If you are looking for an enjoyable and comfortable off-roading experience, opt for Continental TerrainContact A/T tires. These Ford Explorer tires limit noise on bumpy roads and work well on gravel, grass and dirt.

20-Inch Tires For Ford Explorer

While most of the previously mentioned 18-inch tires are also sold as 20-inch tires, which can fit the Sport, Limited and Platinum trim levels of the Explorer, you might enjoy an even better ride with different Michelin or Pirelli all-season tires. Michelin Premier LTX tires have a standard 60,000-mile warranty and are well-known for their comfortable ride. EverGrip braking technology helps maintain incredible safety and shorter stopping distances even when the tire is half-worn. Pirelli Scorpion Zero All-Season Plus tires are high-rated tires that provide incredible handling on both wet and dry roads as well as amazing gas mileage.
