    Frankly i thought they sucked, but after reading this i realized they diserve a lot of props. i'm not experienced enough with performance tires and looking at the above, appearantly mine are doing well.

    i think it's like 650 to get all 4 and install....prolly gonna do it again soon.

    arent fusions pepboy tires? *nothing against pepboys just trying to remember where i heard to get the tires before*

    id have to agree with what a good post this is, i was thinking about fusions before but i remember thinking they may be a cheap tire and not good for what i have. 650 for a set would be sick considering im checking into the eagles F1s that are like 1300 cheapest i can get.

    sweet post thanks guys

    Fuzion is made by BS/FS. They came out to compete against the Kumho's for the tuner market. The technology (UNIT_) found in these tires are the same found in the F/S Wide Ovals but at a lot cheaper price. The reason the price are so low is because of brand name recognition. Awesome tire once the top film is worn off!

    For pure Handling, I would get larger Pole positions (S03) but they are not cheap at all.

    Deff the S03 are awsome tires, but of course like you say along with the performance (wet/dry) comes a absurd price. If you have the money by far and away best all season tire you can buy.

    I have had Fuzions for about 13k miles. Treadwear is good, I've not worn them down halfway yet. The straight line dry traction is very weak on these tire and I'll not get another set.

    I have had the best luck out of the Goodyear F-1 GS-3. Good traction wet or dry, althought they suck in snow. My last set had 25k on them when I sold the car and they still had plenty of tread. My new 02 has the original f-1 so i'm gonna compare the two to see which I like better. Stay away from the Firestone Firehawk.

    KDW's are pretty nice, regular nitto 555's are good for the money.

    The KDs are even better than the KDWs in a striaght line - the next best thing to a drag radial but they work in the rain and on curves. Pricey, though, as I said before.

    The K"D" is meant for Dry, the K"DW" is Dry & Wet, the K"DWS" is Dry Wet Snow. The KD's I had on my 02 Roush deffinatly sucked in the rain. I was going maybe 20 and was coming to a stop and slid into the back of a truck. Very good dry, very very good, almost comparable to the SO3.
