I've used non TPMS winter rims on my 2006 Freestar for years. Everything works fine except that the TPMS monitor indicates a low pressure warning, which you can cancel by pressing the reset button on the dash if you want to view other information on the digital dash display.

I have new tires on my 2008 Ford Fusion but no traction in the snow

what type of tire did you get?? hiway tire..or a mud/snow tire..there is a can usually tell by the tread pattern.. a highway tire is designed to help remove water to the sides and away from the rubber facing..and has consistent lines in it.. a traction tire has blocks on the tread surface that gives the loose snow some where to go when driven over ..and this tread is self cleaning as the tire rotates..the tread is normally a bit deeper also..just because they are new dont mean they are the right may also need to invest in a set of traction grippers that are put on the wheel for deep snow..(like snow chains)..however check on your state and local laws allowing usage before purchasing..the newer ones are a type of cable system that has ferrules on the road surface..

I just had new tires put on my 2006 freestar and now I have a warning TPMS Sensor Fault, what do I need to do to have this message cleared?

Go back to where the tires were installed. The TPMS sensors either have not been linked to the car properly or one or more of the sensors is not working properly. This should have been handled by whomever did the installation of the tires.

If you have too much money, I will take some off your hands. All season tires are all season tires. If you want snow tires get a new set of rims then keep snow tires in your garage for the winter and all season tires for the rest of the year. If you cant drive in the snow cant help you with that.

Can we use snow tires on it and if so what kind and size. for a 2007 mercury mountineer

Hello. Yes, snow tires will give you the best possible traction in winter driving conditions, better that all season. The size tire depends upon the size of your rim so go to a tire store and shop around. They will tell you what size your vehicle requires. As far as kind goes, I prefer Michelin but any brand name snow tire will work fine.
Kindly rate my answer as useful. Thank you.

Yes. the 185/70 are a bit slim for the 6-inch rims - but should bite the rim safely. Wider snow tires would give more traction in snow and ice... and fit the 6-inch rims better.... good luck!! (From sunny North Carolina)

2000 ford focus snow tires

Well, this web site asks me to give people advice, so here goes. I was born and raised in the north and still live up near Wisconsin, so we get a lot of snow, EH. Snow tires for those of us living in the great north are a good investment. They create superior traction in the snow and that's what you need.

The reason you don't run them in the summer time is because of the tread design. The design is made to fill with snow, so they run smoother. Running them on dry pavement with wear them out prematurely and cause a rough ride.

Buy them at a tire store near you where you can get them changed over when summer time comes.

2005 sienna ce 2wd has terrible traction in snow/ice

Are the new tires rated for ice & snow? They are a softer compound & grip better in cold weather.

Snow Tires

This is going to effect your ABS and odometer readings. Suggest sticking with the 17 inch tires and can use your original rims.
