Asked by Nov 14, 2015 at 08:34 AM about the 2004 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

on front seeing that an escape is primary front drive until one of the front wheels slips do you think the difference in tread depth will be harmful I'm thinking it would be better than having a baldy on the front as is now

If the tires are the same size, it shouldn't be a problem. I would suggest investing in a 4 wheel alignment as it sounds like you have some tire wear issues.

Thanks there appear to be many conflicting ideas on types of awd on demand full time etc I read anything in the manual that ford says you can't just Change a pair but also even a complete set would wear differently and as in the case of the last owner probably wasn't big on tire rotations thank you for your input

    Dealer says rotate the tires. That did nothing. Goodyear dealer say needs new tires. Of course that's what he does, sell tires. Tread is still good but rides harsh and noisey. 43,000 miles.
