Fuzion Touring tires featuring T-speed ratings are the Fuzion brand’s Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans, family minivans and small crossover vehicles looking for year-round capability and comfort. The affordably priced Fuzion Touring tires are designed to blend good treadwear, a quiet ride and all-season traction on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.
The Fuzion Touring molds a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound into a symmetric design featuring notched shoulders, intermediate ribs and center ribs to reduce noise generation and promote smooth, even wear. Four circumferential grooves help guide water through the tire’s footprint for wet traction while multiple notches and sipes provide the biting edges to enhance traction in light snow. The tire’s structure includes twin, high tensile steel belts on top of a polyester casing to deliver strength, ride quality and handling.

I have been cursed by the tire —s. All 3 vehicles I have owned come with these tires installed when I buy the car and I always get them them replaced with-in 6 months of the purchase date. 1997 Acura RL: The tires caused me to hydroplane like a maniac. If it was raining out side I would always take my brothers car because I would prefer not to die on my commute to work. The noise level was bearable though.2006 Toyota Matrix XR: The most uneven I have ever seen a tire has ever worn on a car. Cupping was a HUGE problem, Even though it was aligned an balanced they were cupping and balding on the inside of the tire so bad. It wasn’t the car because I have had 2 different sets on since the Fuzions. Noise level was unacceptable. You couldn’t carry on a normal conversation in the car because these were so loud. Steering was slippery and I would never dare to go on the ice with these things.2010 Scion XB: (See Above review.)
Stay away from these tires, please. They are cheap, yes, but if you do care about your own safety, do not install them. The difference between these tires and good tires is about $20-40 per tire. Very noisy, hard like a rock, no comfort while drove these tires. I have purchased a used vehicle and the dealer tried to save a few dollars by installing them on my car, but eventually after several discussions, he was convinced that they are not safe to drive and installed a brand new set of General Tires.
I knew I was buying budget tires for a big car, so I was actually impressed with their traction, handling, ride, and noise level for the first 25,000 miles. The last 10,000 they’ve been slightly scary at times but I have to remind myself I have a heavy car and budget tires. I haven’t had bubbling or separation, though one tire currently feels like it’s got something wrong with it but visually looks fine – the reason I’m shopping tires. The tread is worn quite badly now but really only got that way the past 5,000 miles and they have 35,000 on them. They’re not on my list for purchase though I might go back to them depending how their replacements perform.
I don’t know why all the negative write ups on these Fuzions. I got 80,000 miles off of my set. They handle great, ride great, and lasted 7 years.
3 of 4 tires had tread separation (2 bubble 1 whole tread came off) at around 6,000 now I notice the 4th has major uneven wear pattern, probably more tread separation as 1/2 of tire is good tread and 1/2 is almost bald @ 8,000. If you buy these sell the car fast, Rip off tires! Why no recalls???
At 40,000 miles these are already completely shot. Lots of road noise and vibration even after rotate and balance. I normally get 60-80,000 miles from my tires.
Great, inexpensive tire for dry/rainy weather. Absolutely horrible if there is ANY snow or ice. The tires just sit on top and spin. My car has been stuck in the garage for days, can’t even make it out of the neighborhood without getting pushed.
