Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: Very Quiet, Price can't be beat
Cons: None so Far.
Summary: I recently purchased a 1997 Z28 that had the stock P235/50ZR16 Goodyear tires on it. One thing I noticed was the incredibly loud road noise at highway speeds. I was ready to spend several hundred dollars in damping materials around the wheel wells to ... read more

Pros: Can't think of any.
Cons: Rough, loud ride
Zero handling in any kind of weather
Summary: I bought a full set of these tires when my 2003 Ford Focus ZX3 destroyed 3 of its 4 tires when driving over sharp rocks that had fallen in a canyon. At the time, I had a set of Fuzion HRI's and was quite pleased with the general handling of my ... read more

Cons: Extremely poor tire wear.
Summary: I have bought these tires for several cars. The first set was pretty good. This was about 5 years ago. Since, I've bought more, but these tires literally "melt". They are gone, and I mean GONE after 15K miles! They also don't hold air...I had ... read more

Pros: Good tread life
Cons: Even new they looked like they were bulging a bit. (Looks cheap).
Slow leaks galore.
Summary: Since they have been installed all 4 tires have had episodes of losing pressure slowly. I have to check tire pressure every other weekend now to keep them safe because almost every time one or two of them have dropped 10psi. On top of the ... read more

Pros: Lower cost
Cons: Extremely noisy, major vibration with wear, SHORT lifespan
Summary: These tires started out as a good tire. They did well until about 30,000 miles. Then, if they got close to having put 2,000 miles on them they got noisier. Now at 40,000 they are noisy all the time and when you get close to 2,000 miles ... read more

Pros: Very grippy in dry and wet. Affordable.
Cons: A little noisy, Almost no traction in snow.
Summary: For the price the Fuzion ZRi can't be beat as an ultra high performance summer tire. Though, if your looking for a quiet ride or an all-season tire (except if you live where it never snows or are willing to switch out tires every fall ... read more

Pros: My car is amazing, handles any situation with perfection, tires not so much
Cons: 2 flat tires in a span of a week, and another blew out on highway
Summary: I purchase 4 fuzion tires for a 328i BMW spring of 2007. October 2007, 2 of the tires went flat, separate times, but within a week of each other. We replaced one of them, and fixed the other and switched it with my spare. After that point, my tires have ... read more

Pros: Dry Pavement grip and handling
Cons: Wet traction is average, Snow/Ice traction non-existent
Summary: These tires came with my 2004 Lexus IS300 and were a smooth, tight drive on dry pavement. Wet pavement proved for more restrained handling as these tires didn't grip very well. But the biggest issue is their traction on snow/ice. It snowed very early ... read more

Pros: Wet performance, looks, overall grip. They don't squeal.
Cons: Wear very quickly.....very quickly.
Summary: Got a full 4 tires for a Turbo PT cruiser and I loved the initial ride, and grip wasn't too bad. They are awesome in the rain I must admit and it really rains here in Florida when it wants to. The bad thing about these tires is for 235/45/17 they ... read more

Pros: Cheap, decent handling in wet & dry
Summary: These are a good tire for the price. I have them on a 2002 Tran Am and do spirited driving to say the least. The dry traction is excellent. The wet traction is decent, definitely better than the Goodyears that came stock. You do hear a lot of road noise ... read more

Pros: tight handling, solid straight line grip, good braking grip.
Cons: bad over painted surfaces. also they look bulkier than most low profile tires.
Summary: Had these on for about 2500 miles, and have felt great grip, tight cornering and very stable, although my car (02 VR6 Jetta) seems to absorb alot of noise from the road these are fairly quite. notice road vibration at stoplight, possible due to these ... read more

Pros: Excellent performance, ride, and especially the price!
Summary: I just replaced the tires on my Celica GT with these Firestone Fuzion ZRi tires in size 205/55ZR15. These are far superior to the Goodyear Eagle GT's that I replaced. They have greater grip and better ride than the Goodyear's and they were less than ... read more

Pros: dry traction, wet traction, price
Cons: noisier and harsher than Michelins
Summary: replaced a set of Michelin Pilots with ZRIs. Much better traction. When slaloming my 85 Jaguar XJS TWR the car was very loose with the Pilots. With the ZRIs the back end is planted to the road. Also much better wet traction than the Pilots. The car ... read more

Pros: Great dry and wet traction. Incredibly cheap prices. "W" rated tire.
Cons: short treadlife- warned that it could be as low as 25K miles.
Summary: I've been driving on these tires for a few months and I love them. They have transformed my Protege5. No more squealing on corners. No hydroplaning at 45MPH or spinning tires in the rain after stops. I went a slight bit wider than OEM (205s instead of ... read more
