Firestone Champion Tire

Hello all, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if you could help me with tires.

I searched the forums and the internet and haven't found any reviews of the Firestone Champion HR tire. They have the special buy three get one free and it doesn't involve a stupid rebate either so that's a bonus.

I know no reviews is probably a bad thing, since I figure they've had this tire a while. I'm not a racer or anything, I just drive my Prelude as a daily drive and to have a few spirited acceleration sessions.

I have 17'' wheels fyi.

Re: Firestone Champion Tire

From what i found online it looks good for everyday-

*This tire has a treadwear rating of 400, which is 5% better than the average for all Tire Ratings. It has a traction rating of A (AA is the best), and a temperature rating of A (A is the best).

It is a low-cost high-performance all-season tire with an emphasis on the performance, not the all-season part. These tires are sold under a variety of different names depending on the retail outlet including the Firestone Precision Sport and Fuzion HRi (Tires Plus, Monroe Tire and Firestone brand affiliate dealers), the Champion HR (sold exclusively in Firestone branded stores), the Le Mans Champion HR (discontinued) and Dayton Daytona HR (discontinued). Only the Precision Sport version actually carries the Firestone name on it (and a higher price tag) but all of these tires share the same casing and rubber technology, differing only in tread pattern. The Champion HR and Daytona for example are directional (which I personally dislike) while the others are assymetric. As long as you don't live where it snows or have a smooth ride as overiding priorities these will be quite adequate and decent value for money.

Re: Firestone Champion Tire

Thanks for the replies! I posted this in the 5th gen thread as well since this one didn't get as many resposes, forgive my being new here.

I decided to go with Hankook Ventus Evo V12 or whatever the super long name is. They were 99 bucks a pop, relatively cheap shipping, have an 80 dollar rebate, and I can get them mounted/balanced locally for about 60 bucks as well.

I know many people say you get what you pay for in a tire and it's the single most important safety factor on a car. I just can't justify an extra 50-75 a tire for that bit more performance. Anyway, thanks for the response!

Re: Firestone Champion Tire

Not sure why you would want to test out brand new tires as a novice. Even if you are interested in just buying because of a deal still consider other Firestone Tires Perhaps you should the Firehawk Wide Oval AS. It should do well for you!
