|When I bought my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP galaxy
silver sedan from Pines GM & Pontiac in Pembroke Pines Florida, the car came
with Eagle RS-A tires from the factory.
They were decent tires but I wore them out in 20,000 miles and I couldn't wait to get some quality rubber on the 16 inch torque star wheels.
My next set of tires were the Bridgestone Potenza RE730 tires that cost about $115 each plus shipping from Tire Rack.
I would have bought them locally but no one could match Tire Rack's price.
Worn Out Potenza RE730
Brand New Fuzion ZRi Tires
The Bridgestone/Firestone Potenza RE730 tires were fantastic compared to the OEM rubber Eagle RSA tires.
But after 25,000 hard driven miles, I once again needed new tires.
A tech at Tires Plus informed me of a new brand of tires named Fuzion that were manufactured by Bridgestone & Firestone.
The ZRi model was supposed to be the same as the old RE730 at almost half the price.
I picked up four of them, again from TireRack for about $56.00 each plus UPS shipping. I had the tires mounted a few days later at a local shop.
Since then, I've driven the car with the new Fuzion ZRi tires for a few thousand miles and they feel just as good as the more expensive RE730 rubber.
The ride is still supple and luxurious with plenty of grip, traction and a predictable amount of slide when cornering hard.
The Fuzion ZRi is labeled as a "ultra high performance summer tire", which is fine with me because there's no way that I'm driving anywhere in the snow.
I've got South Florida blood and I try to keep myself in tropical climates
at all times.
