Firestone FR710 Review

Firestone FR710 Review: Average at Best

In my European driving experience, small city cars are often the most cheerful to drive thanks to small and peppy engines, and agile chassis. That said, due to their skinny tires, these vehicles don’t have enough grip or traction to be driven seriously fast in the corners. In other words, they’re fun to drive, but not what you’d call safe.

The tires I’m talking about are called passenger tires. This tire type is specifically made to be cheap to buy, to last for a long time, and to have reliable traction over dry and wet surfaces. Such a tire is the Firestone FR710 – an all-season passenger tire designed to give its owner good all-round capabilities at an affordable price.
At first look, the FR710 might look similarly to touring and grand-touring tires, but in reality, this tire is made for slower vehicles with less powerful engines. Touring and grand-touring tires are similar in their qualities, but they’re also designed for high-speed driving on the highway, unlike passenger tires.

Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter Review

Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter Review: Excellent Fuel-Saving Tire

Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter should offer reliable traction, grip, and braking in all weather conditions the driver encounters. Then, like all touring tires, it should also be supremely quiet and comfortable, even at very high speeds. And, of course, it should also be long-lasting – standard touring tires usually last for more than five years of all-season driving, and sometimes even more (if you don’t use them in the winter). Be sure that we will tackle all those things in this detailed Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter review.

Firestone Destination LE2 Review

Firestone Destination LE2 Review: Solid Wet Traction for the Price

The Destination LE2 is geared towards drivers of passenger light-duty pickups, vans, and SUVs. Its predecessor, the LE, was a very popular tire within the truck community due to its combination of low price and good traction, but the LE2 still tries to improve upon it in every aspect. Firestone even says that the Destination LE2 is fine for crossovers, but we would only recommend it on very large three-row crossovers. The reason is very simple – the Destination LE2 is not the most responsive tire around, which is something that most crossover owners often seek their vehicles.

yokohama avid ascend gt review

Yokohama Avid Ascend GT Review: Super Comfortable Touring Tire

Driving down the road for several hours at a time can be pretty exhausting, especially if your car isn’t very quiet. The science backs this up – noise can really mess up with our brains and make us tired. Most importantly, noise can also make you lose concentration, which is certainly not something you want in a car. Mostly, the noise that you hear while driving on the highway comes from the tires.

Obviously, then, choosing a quieter set of tires will make longer journeys much more bearable. Such a tire is the Yokohama Avid Ascend GT. Specified as grand-touring all-season tire, the Yokohama focuses on outstanding comfort and all-weather traction. But is it really any good? Check out in this detailed Yokohama Avid Ascend GT review!
