New Tires With Old FFE Models 12'13'14'15

Thu Jul 25, 2019 4:11 pm

hey all
I am Tareq Awad from Jordan
Admin for Group FORD FOCUS ELECTRIC CLUB JORDAN

After 3 years We received up to 4000 FFE cars for all models from 2012 at 2018
The old models are very good condition and the performance of high voltage batteries
But it is time for these models to change tires !
Michelin tires dealers do not import Michelin Energy because this tires made only for USA & Canada
As well as most other tire agents
The culture of fuel-saving tires has not reached us yet
But lately there has been one type of tires
From NEXIN (N-Blue Eco - 225/50/17)
Is this frame suitable for Ford Focus Electric?
We need to save the situation and do not forget that the lifetime of the batteries will decrease over the coming years
Please help and put all the appropriate tires do not care for the winter or snowy tires we need all season
thank you

Where in the world did all these FFEs come from?

In the US, they've only sold just over 9000, and almost None in Europe, see article.
How is it that there are SO many in Jordan??

From Wikipedia:

Calendar year US sales
2011 8

According to MyFordMobile, that is where my car is. I've been watching the Used Car ads (I found the equivalent of Craigslist in Jordan through Google) to see if I can find my car. It hasn't moved much lately, so beginning to wonder.
