These came with the used car I bought. I've driven chyrsler concordes or dodge intrepids for 9 years and have primarily had Goodyear triple tread tires on these cars. So far, I haven't noticed much difference between these tires and the much more expensive triple treads. I don't mind the price difference & will buy the Goodyear triple treads next time. However, the goodyears lasted 90+k miles both times and probably are better on wet pavement as Consumers has noted. I've noticed some slippage going around wet corners. I haven't driven in the snow that much. The goodyears seem better in the snow than Consumers rates them.

these were recommended by a local tire dealer. they weren't on the car long as it was close to winter and I changed them soon after buying to my winter tires. since putting them back on this spring, they seem so much louder than before! i can not even drown out the noise with the radio. it's embarassing when I have a passenger and they ask me what is wrong with my car.! worse tires I ever owned for noise. very disappointed.

I had to replace all four tires on a budget and the Fuzion Touring was what all the local dealers were touting. They replaced the original Michelin touring tires that came with my small SUV and that had the same general specs as far as treadwear, temperature, traction. I've had all kinds of tires from expensive to budget and never had a set of tires that were so noisy. You can especially hear them when decelerating. It's crazy. My little SUV sounds like a monster truck now.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
