Follow-Up Review: 14,000 miles on tires
February 10, 2012
While my car was properly aligned, these tires were great; good grip in the corners, slow wear, and a good level of responsiveness. However, I can't testify to their tread life. I ended up lowering my car when the tires had about 9-10K miles on them, at which point they hadn't noticeably worn out from the time I'd gotten them, and I had a ton of issues with bad alignment shops that didn't do quality work. The last 4,000 miles were brutal on these, and they wore out quickly. However, they still gripped well up until today, when I changed them out. Overall, I think I'd buy another set of these for another car or once my car is properly aligned and I'm in need of new tires. If you want a good summer performance tire and don't want to spend a ton of money, I'd recommend giving these a shot.
Initial Review: 4,000 miles on tires
November 07, 2010

I bought these tires after plus-sizing the rims on my car, going from the stock 16's to 18's. I bought these tires initially because they were cheap summer performance tires with a sightly higher treadwear number than the other tires I was looking at. So far, I am pretty impressed with them. I didn't expect them to be that great. I expected a good amount of noise based on other reviews. They aren't nearly as loud as I anticipated and have an exceptional amount of grip in wet and dry weather. They do feel a bit stiffer, but that's probably just because they're thinner than my previous tires and need to be firmer to support the car. Overall, I think it's a great tire, especially for the value. I'll try to follow up on this review after I've had them a bit longer, but so far, it looks as though I'll be buying Fuzion ZRi's again in the future.
