We bought our 2002 Escape V6 5 years ago with 90,000 miles. I immediately put on a new set of tires. At the time the top rated all season tire for that vehicle was Firestone Destination LE2. We put 75,000 on the Escape. At 50,000 the tread was
2/3 gone so bought a new set of same tire. 25,000 on the new set the tread is about 1/3 worn.
In 75,000 have had no issue with these tires. It is now second rated to a Michelin LTX M/S2.
We are in Wisconsin. Our daily drivers see all kinds of conditions from driving rain to ice and snow. My wife is the primary
driver of this vehicle so I wanted her car to have top rated tires.
Opinion: The Goodyear Wrangler is highly advertised and very popular as it is often original equipment. Why are you intent on buying these? Price? Surprisingly car makers often equip their vehicles with tires that barely meet the minimum requirements. Remember the famous Uniroyal Tiger Paws, man they came on GTOs they must be great! Not so much!
