Fuzion Tires

I'm just wondering if anyone has any opinions on Fuzion ZRi's (215/45/17)?? Good or bad?
Does anyone have any pics of the Fuzion ZRi's on a Focus?

It's an older Bridgestone Potenza design. The only complaints we get and tire rack gets/reviews is that the sidewall is not stiff enough. Otherwise for the price they are a good tire. However don't plan on driving in ANY snow with them.

I'd also look into Kumho Ectsa SPT, General Exclaim UHP or if you need an all season Bridgestone Potenza RE-960 A/S Pole Position.

Why do you love them so much? Have you had General Exclaims or Kumho Ecstas? I really like the looks of the ZRi's. They all have pretty much the same test specs. and the prices are pretty close too. I duno what to do..ahhh

With the UTQG ratings which one is better (320 A A, 380 AA A, or 320 AA A)?

Any pics of them on a foci?

I like them, they work well enough down here in Louisiana (not many snow issues). I think though if I can save up enough that I want to go with the O_Z_ Ultraleggera's and then wrap them with Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's. Good grip and LOT less weight. Not to get to far off topic though the fuzions have impressed me for the price.

up here your better of fwith the pirellies, even when its dry. the fuzions dont grip so nice when they get worn a bit. in fact i'm taking the hri's off and getting a better more dedicated winter tire when my new shoes arrive (shod with extas,lol) and no not blizzaks on the old rims. its gonna be a pirelli snow tire..

i would never buy any pirelli tire. the sidewalls are horrible quality. every single one i have ever seen after about 10000 miles, the sidewalls have grown knots on them and eventually bursted. and in all seriousness ive seen a total of about 9 of these tires do this. practically every pirelli tire that me and my friends have owned has done it. not to mention they are pretty expensive tires. i would stay away from pirelli. the owner of the tire shop i get my wheels and tires from says the exact same thing. he would never own a pirelli because of this same reason.

I have some 215 40 17's Hri's and like them..... they are about worn out and have just recently noticed some traction issues..... but for the price and how long they last you can't beat them....

hope that helps! (btw...i've only used them once in the snow....and they did "alright" but I have used better.)
