Ford Focus Tire Line Recommendations
If you like to push your Focus to the limit, the BF Goodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S is a smart, affordable pick for your car. The g-Force Super Sport A/S is designed for all-weather performance, with a continuous center rib for straight-line road manners and Aqua-Chute Grooves for wet road hydroplaning resistance. Internally, this tire is built with twin steel belts and Goodrich’s Equal Tension Containment System (ETEC) of spiral-wrapped reinforcement layers under the tread. All in a H- and V- speed rated tire with BF Goodrich quality!
Another affordable quality tire for the Focus is the Dunlop Direzza DZ101 – developed as a summer tire with crisp, responsive handling. The Direzza Dz101 features Dunlop’s Silicarbon Matrix tread formulation (special blend of silica and carbon black) for traction, in a directional tread design with rigid shoulder blocks and two straight, wide channels for stable cornering and hydroplaning resistance. The Direzza DZ101’s polyester cord body helps isolate vibration and road noise for a smooth, quiet ride.
Another great summer tire is the Yokohama S.drive, designed with Yokohama’s technological advances like a micro-flexible tread compound that incorporates nanotechnology and a silica-based formulation. The directional tread design includes independent shoulder blocks, notched intermediate ribs and a continuous center rib for cornering stability and road manners. Wide circumferential grooves feature angled groove walls to move water away from the tread in wet weather, with tiny scores on the grooves themselves for improved load distribution. The S.drive, like all summer tires, is not designed for freezing temperatures, snow or icy conditions.
