    Ever had Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval or Fuzion ZRi

    Right now I have the Firehawk tires, but has anyone used the fuzion zri's? They got excellent reviews on tirerack just like the Firehawk's. I was just wondering if anyone has or had them. I think the Firehawks are decent, but they are the only tires i've had so thx in advance.

    i know my wide ovals are kinda pathetic on water...granted with as much power as we put down..but are they ok on water? what's the tread life like?

    I think wet traction is ok about as good as the stock goodyears, but wet traction in these cars is kind of an oxymoron. not sure on tread life they seem to be holding up pretty good for me only had on for about 6,000 miles. they seem like they will last a while if i can ever keep my foot out of it.

    Thumbs up

    I have Fuzion ZRi's up front (275-40-17) and Firestone Wide Ovals out back
    (295-35-18)...have about 1500 miles on them so far. I'm in Florida and just tested for the first time in the rain this past week and they handled much better than the Goodyear F1 supercar's I had on before.

    I work for bridgestone and fuzion's are actually made with the same rubber compound that are found in alot of the potenza series. I think that they are about the best value out there, but you better not get stuck in the snow because you won't go anywhere! But in the wet/dry, they are very good for the money and resist cupping on the insides due to the tread block design.

    thx for the good info guys and yes i will make sure i never drive the camaro in snow...it snows all the time here but unless it is completely dry with no salt i will not drive it at all not worth the risk of losing control or rust. i think i've found my next tire
