#28 of 29 Quietest Tires for FEH
Oct 13, 2009 (3:21 am)
It's time to buy new tires for a 2007 FEH. My wife wants the quietest possible. Just Tires has Wranglers on sale is this a good choice? I've had good luck with Michelin's in the past on other cars. My Madza3 s Hatchback has Falken tires that are excellent but I don't know if they have a size for the FEH.
What has been your experience?
#29 of 29 Jack does not lift Escape high enough to put on spare
Apr 13, 2010 (6:49 pm)
Hi! I'm new to the boards and I hope I can get some help. This past weekend my wife's 2008 Escape Hybrid caught a flat. I was able to jack up the SUV and remove the flat tire but I could not get the spare on because the jack would not lift the SUV any higher. I used the jack that came with the SUV (scissor jack). I took it to the shop and had a new tire put on. Fast forward to today: I bought a new jack that extends from 9" to 18 1/2". I extended the jack as high as it would go and the tire (fully inflated) still would not come off the ground. The "problem" tire is the rear right. I put the jack under the SUV according to the instructions in the manual.
I've changed plenty of tires before but never for an SUV. Is there a certain jack that should be used? Shouldn't the jack that came with the vehicle be sufficient?
Thanks in advance!
