Mercury Cougar Spare Tires

The Mercury Cougar used 4x108 mm and 5x108 mm bolt pattern variations from 1983 to 2002 along with tire diameters ranging from 24.5" to 26.9" tall. Using a temporary compact spare tire with a diameter close to the standard tire has many benefits, especially for modern vehicles with larger brake calipers and anti-lock brakes or traction control systems.


The tire diameter and the wheel diameter clearance have been taken into account for the specific Mercury Cougar years and options. In this case, 135/70R17, 155/60R18, 145/70R17 and 165/70R17 spare tire sizes are used to avoid vehicle components while closely matching the original tire size diameters. We've provided a breakdown by vehicle generation and model specifics to help you find the correct Mercury Cougar spare tire.
