2004 focus sedan tire size

Got a used 2004 Focus sedan and it seems to have the wrong tires/wheels on it. They're 185/14's and it seems that the tire should be 195/15's. How do I know for sure, and what are the consequences of having the current tires/wheels if this is correct?

The correct tire size is printed on the door on a factory tag.
Usually driver's side.
Let me know if it's there or not, and if more investigation is required.

Check in the Back of the Owners Manual under Specifications. BTW- You cannot have 15 inch Wheels if you have 14's on it Right Now. They have a TOTALLY Different Bolt Pattern.

2002 ford focus rear tire wear


ABNORMAL REAR TYRE WEAR Ford Focus 2000-2004

"Ford Motor Company told dealers that they may need to replace the rear upper control arms on Ford Focus models. The models include: 2000 through 2004 Focus Sedan, Wagon, ZX3 and ZX5 series.

According to Ford, consumers have been experiencing more than normal wear to the inside of the rear tire(s). Should owners experience such a condition, then they should bring their vehicle in to a Ford or Lincoln Mercury dealership for a possible adjustment. Ford will check the rear camber and, if possible, make an adjustment. If an adjustment to the vehicle's rear camber is necessary beyond the negative end of specification, then the dealership will need to source replacement rear upper control arm(s)."

The Ford Motor Company parts service kit required for this replacement is 3S4Z-1A154-AA. Ford will perform the replacement of parts under provisions of the bumper to bumper warranty under Technical Service Bulletin T31305.

This is considered a "silent recall" where upon Ford may NOT notify owners of this condition. " ( From 2003........)

This no doubt is the likely problem with your car or it could just be in need of a wheel alignment. In any event the previous owner(s) may never had put the car in for the rear suspension modification.
If the fix was undertaken, Ford will have a record of it under your Vehicle Identification Number(VIN).

As the car is out of warranty and given the age(2002 model) I expect you will have to pay for the fix if the problem is the suspension components and not simply the car being in need of a wheel alignment which routinely needs to be done every 12000 miles or so in any event.

Hope this helps.

Tyre pressures for ford focus 2.0 ltr 2008 model?


Look either in the owners manual under the maintenance section or usually there is a sticker with the tire pressures for your car in the drivers door jamb. Here is an answer from another website where this question was answered:

Best Answer: That depends on trim level and tire size.

On most models with a P185/65R14 85T or P195/60R15 87T sized tire the recommended pressure is 32 psi front and rear, except the ZX3 which is 34/34 psi. On models with P205/50R16 86V sized tires use 34 psi front and rear. If you are not sure what you have check the Tire Load and Inflation sticker which you will see when you open the drivers door. It will tell you tire size and recommended inflation.

Dimension of wheel cover


Have a look at your tyres (tires, you may be American).
You should find some numbers and letters on the sidewall which are the measurements for the tires/tyres and hub.

Usually they are like this:
195/65 R15

The number after the R is the size of the hub in inches for your tyres/tires. This is the number you need for the wheel covers.


:-) Cheers!

2001 Focus Vibrates Inexplicably!


Vibrations while driving are usually caused by missing/broken motor mounts, wheel bearings, unbalanced tires, or worn/bent 1/2 axles.
Improper tires (or winter tires) may also contribute.
Get a second opinion!
There are too many things on a 2001 that could be wrong.
