Comment:
I had these tire on a 1998 Volvo V70R. They were recommended to me by a Tire Dealer. This was the first time I had ever had anything but a V rated tire on this car. I liked the soft ride. The handling was fine for me. I only got 22k miles on these tires in 2 years and they were shot. Firestone customer service said they were the wrong tire for my car. The dealer said that was nonscence but neither would back up the tire. I won't buy another set of Firestones after this experience.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I purchased a new 2014 Toyota Sienna and have regular service and rotations. I now have 32,000 miles on these Firestone FR710's and there is no tread left and have to purchase new tires. My driving is half and half highway/city. These are supposed to be 65,000 mile tires and I will never purchase another Firestone product. It is a shame that Toyota puts these on their new vehicles. Hopefully Firestone will take care of this issue.

These Firestone tires were on the vehicle from GM. Have 6 years of driving 118000 kms on them with never a problem! Just considering replacing them now!
