I have Pirelli 255/40r20 and they are out of stock (new) in my town and online. they are about $400 on ebay. So I bought a used one, on ebay, from a company in Michigan for about $150. Plenty of tread (8/32 ish) and 2019 manufacture date. Only problem was it was damage on the inside so it had to go back. Now I have another on order from Chicago for about $140. Fortunately my bad tire had a slow leak but I finally put on the spare. The tool they supply won't go on the lug nuts (slightly swollen) so I used my 3/4 socket and it's on. The spare had about 38lbs and I had to inflate to 60lbs.

All this because I needed to drop off my $99 impact drill for warranty claim

Do a search on swollen lug nuts. Get a set of one piece lugs, well worth the cost and you should be able to do the job yourself. Also get a metric socket instead of using the supplied tool.

Very common problem on all Ford products Escape included when I changed tires on our 2016. I just bought a set with locks from autozone and when Costco changed the tires I had them put the new lug nuts on.
