I tow a front wheel drive Ford Fusion Hybrid with all four on the ground. My problem is the starting battery goes dead and the tires are wearing more than normal.

That is the problem, the tires DON'T turn, so every time you corner, the front tires scrub out. You would need to have the key in the ignition and the lock released whilst towing. You can do this easily if you have two keys, leave one in the ignition and lock the doors with the other one.

The starting battery going dead is a puzzle, but Hybrid cars charge batteries as the brakes are used and speed is decreased. The wheels generate power, so perhaps they use power if they are turning with the engine off? Just guesswork.

you may be better with a towing arrangement where the front or rear wheels fit onto a single or twin axle dolly like tow truck drivers use. Like the tow dolly in this link.

well ,how was it towed .please say on a flat bed or with the front tires down on the ground. I am hoping the tow truck did you have the back tires down and towed it by the front .if it was towed by the front then you need a transfere case and hope not a transmission also

How take off pins not bolts on caliper 87 Ford Ranger front brake

The pins / wedges just tap out use a scewdriver on the metal edge of the pin just tap it out to the rear and when putting them back in just tap them back in from the front. You will see they are diamond shape and metal cased around rubber very easy to do just take your time.

I just bought a 95 ford ranger. I need new tires

Type ford ranger tyre size into your search engine you will find the origional size there. Otherwise if you are changing all four fit four the same size. Low profile gives you more power high profile gives more speed. If you do a lot of towing low are better.
