2019 ford explorer for sale kirkland washingtonFord’s just announced its Explorer Platinum and Limited Hybrid 4WD models will come with standard Michelin Selfseal® tires, also available as options on the Explorer Limited 2WD and 4WD models. “Nothing derails a family vacation like a flat tire,” said Joseph Billman, Ford wheel and tire engineer. “Explorer is the ultimate road trip family hauler – and it’s the perfect fit for these new Michelin Selfseal tires.”

These proprietary Michelin tires can seal 90 percent of tread punctures and slow the rate of air pressure loss to potentially as little as 15 pounds per square inch per week. This will help you avoid loss of vehicle control, dangerous roadside stops in unfamiliar territory, and interruptions that will delay your commute or put a damper on your vacation.

A sealant embedded in the tire surrounds nails or screws and seals the puncture to avoid air loss. It’s also designed to fill tread punctures up to a quarter-inch in diameter if the object doesn’t stay embedded.

The sealant is environmentally friendly and the dramatic reduction in air loss means you won’t end up like “millions of every year on the side of the road, jack in hand and gravel on knees.”
