First off sorry if this is the wrong area to put this up in, please move if it is.

I recently went shopping for new tires and the guy helping me told me about these Bridgestone Fuzions and said that they are apparently very nice tires, so I just wanted to know if anyone has any experience with them and if they are indeed good tires. Just in case it matters I use my car for pretty tight cornering and some canyon runs whenever I have the chance other than that I use my car for daily driving.

I have them and they are great and they look good. I do not do much cornering so I havn't really tested them to their max. But so far no trouble

Do you want teh HRI or the ZRI the HRI are not speed rated as high. The H are an all season tire where as the Z are a summer tire. The Z are going to perform better(canyons) the H can be used in snow. It really depends on what you are doing and where you live. I personally bought a set of Fuzion ZRI and they have about 2000 miles on them. I really like them so far. I drove my dads M3 with Bridgestones on it and they were good too, but it is hard for me to really tell if any differences were because of tire or suspension(my guess is suspension).

I would definately recommend my Fuzions and I am guessing that the HRI would be the same quality. I have also heard good things about the Avon, which is another brand in the same catagory or lower priced, good quality tires.

Eitehr way if you buy from a Firestone or Tiresplus or something. Haggle with them. I go them to offer them to me for $420 mounted, lifetime balance, and road hazard program for a set of the ZRI. I bought new from a friend who manages a Firestone for less though.

So far so good from what I'm hearing then.

About the ZRI and HRI, unfortunately I have those small 15" rims so none of the ZRI's will fit. But as far as speed rating goes I don't think it'll bother me too much since I don't normally go over 90mph. I live in LA so I'm guessing the all weather won't do anything for me until winter comes again with a crap load of rain like this past year.

As far as prices go I got an estimate for roughly $290 which includes recycling the old tires, dismount, 1 time balancing, and lifetime rotation, but I'm a certified grease monkey so I can do the balancing and rotating whenever I want with my shop's equipment.

Anyways thanks for the insight guys.

Yeah I had the 15" stock but upgraded to 17" (they really make a world of difference on the car). $290 doesn't sound that bad get them to throw in the road hazard program too. Call around and you will get the price you want and all the extras too.
