Firestone Affinity Touring
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
February 17, 2013

These tires are installed on a vehicle that is used for a number of purposes, including commercial and STORM CHASING. That said it sees alot of highway and country roads which include dirt, gravel, mud, and even fields. I selected this tire because it has a great warranty and the tread pattern is an awesome mix of all season and touring and is aggressive enough to be used in light offroad situations. This tire is probably the BEST value out there. The only complaint I can think of is that they have some sidewall flex, but they are 70 series tires, why wouldn't they? I have used these in practically every weather sitiation I can think of and didn't have a problem, save for ice traction (they aren't dedicated ice tires, after all). To boot they are a very smooth and comfortable tire, so even if you aren't chasing weather they are an excellent touring tire.
