Comment:
Winter driving & handling were ok/acceptable during heavy snow season but noise erupted with a vengeance with spring weather and only 23k miles driven in first 11 months. Car is babied with oil and tire rotations every 5k miles. This is supposed to have a 60k mile warranty but we all know how that goes when you go to have them replaced!

The Firestone FR710's came with my new 2012 Chrysler 300. Took the car in for routine service and the service manager said I needed new tires. Before I could even think I blurted out what! These tires have been rotated @ 5, 10, 15, 20k miles and currently have only 22,400 miles. I read here the warranty is 65,000 and I will look in to that. They run well and are quiet, but good grief!
