    Summary: When I first bought my 2001 Nissan Sentra SE it came with some nasty Fires tone Firehawk GTA tires as the OEM tire of choice. After I wearing those down, I ... read more

    Pros: Quiet
    Inexpensive
    Great Quality
    Cons: Kind of ugly looking

    Pros: inexpensive
    Cons: potentially very dangerous

    Summary: Maybe a bit more severe a price to pay than I first expected for less expensive tires. After putting almost 3 years on this set of tires, two out of the four have developed what looks like a bubble in the sidewall!! I noticed what seemed like a ... read more
