Winter ST Driving - Purchase new tires and wheels or just tires?
JEB_Derby posted a topic in Wheels & TiresI have a 2019 ST with stock tires Summer PZero 265/40ZR21 (105Y). With winter coming, I have the following dilemma: Replace with all weather tires? Purchase winter tires and switch out the tires every six months? Purchase a new set of wheel rims and fit with winter tires? Stick with Pirelli? Pros and Cons would be appreciated. Thanks

Smallest wheel for '13 Limited
Snafuflux posted a topic in Wheels & TiresI've been scouring the forum for a definite answer regarding obtaining snow rims/tires for the winter months. This is our first winter with our '13 Limited and my wife will be carting around our new born so I want to ensure they're safe throughout the winter months. I also know the smallest wheel possible is optimal in deep snow. I've found lots of people report that 17" will fit on all '13 Edges except the Sport due to larger brake callipers. Now I've gone to several tire companies locally and they all are worried that the 17" rim will not fit because our Edge has the 20" package. Even Ford was telling me not to go 17". When I said that I thought only the Sport had bigger callipers he got defensive and said "Alright if you know best."; made me question if I did... So here I am. Does anyone know of a way that I can tell if indeed the 235/65R17 rim/tires will fit on our Limited? Or would anyone be willing to provide additional information confirming or disproving my thought that the suggested sized rim/tires will fit? Your help is much appreciated.
Choice of foam - noise suppression or temperature
Liptoss posted a topic in 3.5LJust wondering, I was watching Mac T's transmission flush video and thinking, "Where's his sexy foam blocks that Ford has placed on top of the valve covers and intake manifold?" Had the 2008 Edge even shipped with them? I recall reading more than a few threads ranging from valve noise to dying out and failing coil packs etc. Obviously this V6 engine has what may be classified as a noisy valve train. Ford felt it necessary to try and quiet things down, and shield the uninitiated from matters going on "down below" such as the VCT, aluminum valve covers, coil packs, etc. My question to others is this: I've thought about removing these insulating foam blocks from my 2013 to assist with heat dissipation from the top end and open up the air space in the engine compartment. In turn possibly, spare the coil packs from excess heat. In the colder winter months, put the foam blocks back in to help the motor heat up quicker and also protect the aluminum and other top end components like the fuel rail, coils etc from brine spray and moisture. I think who really cares if the noise of the valves are heard a little more? Just my thoughts. Any others out there like me?
Winter Tires Bridgestone Blizzak 245/60r18 $450
jony51999 posted a topic in ClassifiedsHi all. We ended up trading in my wife's edge and went with an explorer. I have the 245/60r18 Bridgestone Blizzaks that were on it for last winter that have about 6-7K miles and are still like new. These are about $800 installed new, so you are saving almost 50% at $450. We had a ton of snow here in Michigan last year and with these tires my wife never once had an issue (her edge was front wheel drive). I haven't posted a lot in this forum (primarily used as a resource for reading when we had our edge) but you can find me on eBay under the same user id of jony51999 and you will see I've been a member since 2002 and have 100% feedback so you can be assured I'm trustworthy. I'm located in southeast Michigan and can be reached via the forum or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Nexus posted a topic in Wheels & TiresHey guys, I recently traded my Nissan Rogue 2011 for a 2013 Ford Edge SEL appearance style model (20 inch wheels). It appears the Rogue and the Ford Edge shares the same bolt pattern (5-114). The dimension of the winter tires are 225/60-17 on steel rims. Can someone please tell me if they would fit on my edge? I presume it would but since most of the edges have 245/ tires, I'm a bit apprehensive. Pls advise
Aftermarket Wheels + Winter = Troubles!
beigs posted a topic in Wheels & TiresSo right after I bought my 2012 Edge Limited last year, I replaced the wheels with some aftermarket Lorenzo's from TireRack. Add the tires, TPMS, shipping, it all came out to just over $2000. On top of that, I had to pay the dealer a couple hundred bucks to 'reset' the vehicles computers to handle a bigger wheel size. For reference, these are the wheels I purchased (Machined with black inlays): TireRack Link I was originally going to keep the stock wheels to use in the winter, but after I realized that having a bigger wheel than stock would require dealer services every time I swapped them out, I just opted to sell off the originals and make sure I kept my car nice and clean through the Michigan winter. Big Mistake!!! Not even a year later, and after one winter, the back two wheels are basically ruined. They pitted and corroded. I thought I could 'polish' it out, but as soon as I tried, the clear coat peeled off to reveal the shiny metal underneath. What a waste! So now I am looking at my options. I am sending a message to both Lorenzo and TireRack, but I'm not holding my breathe, Lorenzo specifically says they don't warrant against "Adverse Weather". I could tear them off and powder coat them, I guess? Don't really know how they would take to that? I'm considering replacing them with something else (another $2000 bucks (gulp!). But what would I replace them with? Obviously the machined finish didn't fair so well, would painted wheels do better? I was considering these: TireRack Link #2 I suppose I could keep the crappy Lorenzo's (I'm sorry, but the clear coat job was obviously a joke, I won't ever buy from them again), and use them as the new "Winter Wheel". If new ones are the same size, I won't require dealer service to swap them out. Last note: I take extremely good care of my vehicle. I wash it nearly every week, especially in the winter. Also, my town and immediate area doesn't use salt anymore on the roads (though they still use if for sidewalks). I'm not sure what else I could have done really to prevent this, I think I just got a crappy product. What do you guys think? Thanks for your help...
