Firestone Affinity Touring
Initial Review: 12,700 miles on tires
January 15, 2013

These were the OE tires on my Jeep Patriot. I just took them off today to go to larger tires with a more aggressive tread. Overall for an OE passenger car class tire, on a 4WD suv/cuv, they performed very well( even in the snow ). While they would not have been my 1st choice of tire for the vehicle, and many people beat them up, they were much better than I expected. I drove in a few really bad snow storms and never had a problem with them although that may have been more a credit to the 4WD system in the Jeep than the tires? Still, they didn't hurt me in anyway. Only real complaint would be they seemed to be loud on certain rode types. Other road types very quiet. Other than that not a bad car tire. Just not really an appropriate tire for a 4WD suv/cuv IMO. New tread was 11/32 and when measured today they all had 8/32 left( very even wear ).
