The Fuzion ZRi.
The Fuzion ZRi is Fuzion's Ultra High Performance Summer tire for sport compact and sports car enthusiasts. The Z-speed rated Fuzion is designed to provide outstanding handling and traction in both the wet and dry.
Fuzion's Ultimate Network of Intelligent Tire Technology (UNI-T) features three base elements: CO•CS, a Computer Optimized Component System that allows design and manufacturing processes to work closer together for a more efficient tire that doesn't greatly sacrifice one area of performance for improvements in another; O-Bead, a more round structure that reduces overlapped joints in the bead area for a better ride; and L.L. Carbon (Long Link Carbon) to help the rubber compound resist microscopic tread tearing related to wear.
Fuzion molds a Long Link Carbon and silica-reinforced tread compound into a directional tread design that enhances dry traction and also evacuates water from between the tire’s contact patch and the road. On the inside, the Fuzion ZRi’s casing and steel belts deliver great handling and cornering stability. The steel belts are reinforced with spirally wound nylon to provide high-speed durability while reducing weight and maximizing ride. The Fuzion ZRi features Rim Guard rubber ridges on its lower sidewalls to help protect your wheels from curb damage.
During my test drive on this tire, I found it to be very responsive and sharp. Some of you may know that the Fuzion line is made by Bridgestone. Given what Bridgesone brings to the table, you really can't go wrong with the Fuzion ZRi. And the fact that it is produced in a few smaller sizes is a very nice bonus.
