I have read reviews that said these came OE on their vehicle. This is a replacement tire. The OE fitment is also an Affinity. The 2 tires are very different. It is easy to confuse the two. They also made an Affinity LH30 which is also different. This Affinity is the 70k T Rated tire. A great tire at Firestone on sale. I would recommend these over any other tire in any brand.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I own two sets of these tires. 2007 Toyota Corolla & 2007 Pontiac Vibe. I have over 20,000 miles on the Corolla and no visible sign of tire wear. Very happy with handling in wet and dry conditions. Bought both sets at Firestone Store on a buy 3 get 1 free deal. I also purchased a Lifetime Front End Alignment which may be why these tires wear so well. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them as a great tire value. Has a 70,000 mile tire wear warranty. Unusual for this priced tire.

Comment:
The Affinity touring fuel fighter tires came as OEM on a new Honda Accord I purchased 3 weeks ago. They have to be about the noisiest tires I have ever seen and they ride as if made of wood. Plan to replace them with my favorite, Goodyear Assurance toruing.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
