What size tires on the Mercury Sable?

You should be able to read the size on the tire. Wipe them clean and look for a series of numbers that starts with an "R", for radial.

For example, it might say something like: "R-165-70-14"

Or just Goo-goo it.
Or use the phone book and call a Tire Store.
Or maybe your Momma might know.
