Any reviews on the Firestone FR380? Looking for 215/60/16.

Brantec has them for $900 for the pair.

No reviews online? Since the whole Ford fiasco when there were defects on OEM tyres, they seemed to have turned everything around and stepped up their game.

Called mileage they don't carry that size in 888.

Nankang dealer don't carry the size in Trinidad.

Maxxis don't carry that size either.

New would be great. Fu if I have to.

Need it 120 and under :( can't use slicks on my car. Rim size, offset, etc. is problems for me. :(

I've used them on a bj 323 and a nze corolla they are perfectly adequate a little noisier than I liked but handles all weather fine. Traction was great and they squealed at their limit before you lost traction so I had a good gauge on their limit

Thanks again. Yeah tirerack has the z3 and dw a tier above the 102 but I found the 102 adequate for my car as well so wouldn't mind if the z4s is similar. Z3 really nice too when last I used them.

If you found the 102 adequate the z4s should be suffice like I said the noise may be a deciding factor tho the 102 should be quieter than the z4

Hi, tyre peeps...
I'm looking for 245/70/16 A/T's for an SUV...can't find Falkens... was considering Firestones.... any other recommendations?
The prices out there are way high... understandable maybe if you consider shipping and duties etc. (I really dunno)
Anyone ever heard of Kingrun tyres??? Can't seem to find anything other than it's (yet) another Chinese brand out there.
Considering going fu'sed.
