Tire sizes on my 2018 ford escape titanium
Hello I have a 2018 ford escape titanium it comes
factory 18 in tires i want to downsize to 17 inch is
this possible without screwing things up
Yes it will mess a few things up. You distance travelled will change as well as your speed, so the speedo/ odometer will need recalibration to match what you put on the vehicle, you must also make sure the wheel offset is correct or you could windup with a vehicle that won't move cause the wheels hit the brake calipers or they stick out from under the fenders cause the offset went the wrong way. Your best bet is to find a good tire and wheel shop, they can answer all your questions and maybe able to get you just what you want.
That may also hurt your fuel mileage
If you use the correct diameter 17" tires everything will work correctly as long as they clear the brakes.
