With so many tire options available, it can be confusing to decide which ones are the best for you. Our team at Aurora Ford Yellowknife is here to help and will walk you through all your options.

All-season tires

All-season tires, as their name suggests, are designed to provide reliable traction and handling in a wide range of weather conditions. This includes dry and wet roads, as well as light snow. They typically feature a versatile tread pattern that balances grip on both dry and wet surfaces. However, they are not as effective in extreme winter conditions, where specialized winter tires are recommended.

Performance tires

Performance tires, on the other hand, are optimized for high-speed handling and improved cornering performance. They feature a tread pattern that prioritizes dry grip and handling over wet traction. While performance tires may deliver a more thrilling driving experience on dry roads, they may not be the best choice for everyday use or in wet or snowy conditions.

Winter tires

Whenever the temperature dips below 7°C, winter tires are your best option. Winter tires are specifically designed for use in colder climates and harsh winter conditions. They have a distinct tread pattern and rubber compound that provide exceptional grip on snow and ice, delivering improved performance in cold and snowy conditions. Winter tires may not be as effective on dry or wet roads and should be replaced with all-season or performance tires once winter conditions subside.

Our tire experts are here to help guide you through your options and you can feel confident about your purchase knowing that it is backed by Ford’s Tire Price Match Promise.

Aurora Ford Yellowknife FAQ

Who makes Ford parts?

Ford and Motorcraft make genuine Ford parts.

What is the difference between Ford parts and aftermarket parts?

The main difference is in their product offerings. Ford Genuine Parts solely produces original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Ford parts, whereas Motorcraft manufactures both OEM and aftermarket parts. Although the Motorcraft parts are not produced by Ford, they are designed to have a perfect fit with Ford vehicles.

Is there a Ford parts shortage currently?

Chip shortages and other part shortages continue to plague the auto industry due to the ongoing global supply chain challenges. Due to this, some Ford vehicles are still impacted by the shortages and alternative measures have been put in place. To find out more, our team at Aurora Ford Yellowknife is available to assist you in any way. Contact our team today!

Will buying aftermarket parts void my Ford warrenty?

Using aftermarket parts for your vehicle may not automatically void your New Vehicle Limited Warranty. In cases where the aftermarket product you install malfunctions, or causes another Ford part to fail, those repair expenses would not be covered by your warranty.

With your new vehicle warranty, there are certain compliance rules to be aware of so that you don’t accidentally void your warranty. Contact our team if you need assistance going through your warranty.

Are aftermarket parts covered by my insurance?

This will vary depending on your auto insurance provider and the policy in place. It will also depend on whether these parts were to replace an OEM part or to be added as an enhancement to the vehicle.

If you’re planning to customize your vehicle with aftermarket parts, the best option would be to purchase supplemental auto insurance coverage through your provider.

If you need to replace an OEM part and have found a better-priced aftermarket product, it’s best to confirm directly with your insurance provider if it will be covered or not. You will also need to confirm with your New Vehicle Limited Warranty to see if that aftermarket part will impact your warranty.

What does it cost to replace a Ford part?

The cost of Ford parts is dependent on a few factors such as the specific part that requires replacement, the type of Ford model you own, and the cost of labour involved.

For example, for a 2022 Ford Explorer, a disc brake pad set might cost $316.35 just for the parts, while an engine coolant hose will cost $625.98. 

How long does it take Ford to deliver parts and accessories?

Aurora Ford Yellowknife caries a large inventory of Ford genuine parts and accessories at our Parts Centre.

If a part needs to be ordered directly from Ford, if it’s in stock, it will ship in one to two business days. If that part is on backorder from Ford, you will be notified of the delay and new shipping timeline over email.

How much does it cost to replace a Ford tire?

The cost of replacing a tire will vary based on the following:

  • The Ford model you drive

  • The trim level of your Ford as it may come with a different tire size

  • The tire brand your vehicle came with

  • The tire type you currently have (i.e. all-season, performance, or winter).

How long do Ford factory tires last?

If you consistently drive around 20,000 km per year, your Ford tires should last you 4 to 5 years, or up to 80,000 km. Mileage isn’t the only thing that impacts the lifespan of your tires, driving conditions, your driving style, and how well you keep up with maintenance will also impact the longevity. 

Here are a few things you can to do help extend the life of your tires: 

  • Avoid hard cornering, quick acceleration, and sudden braking to prevent excessive wear

  • Have your tires regularly checked for damage and to maintain air pressure

  • Follow maintenance schedules for having your tire alignment checked and your tires rotated.

How often should I replace my tires?

Your tire lifespan will vary based on several factors, but in general, they will last 3 to 5 years if you drive between 20,000 to 24,000 km per year. 

Other factors that will impact your tire lifespan are: 

  • How many kilometers you drive in a year

  • How well you keep up with regular vehicle maintenance 

  • Your driving style and habits

  • The driving conditions.
