Time to try out another tire

Post  Mikesvtx on Thu Apr 10, 2008 7:17 pm

I have over 15K on my Triple tread, but this weekend I noticed that the sidewall had a bad spot on it. It looks like I might have run over something and it kicked up into the side wall.
I stopped at a tire warehouse today and got to looking around and deceided to give the Fuzion a try. $72 out the door. here's the link to the fuzion site.

careful with that fuzion... that's the only brand I have seen multiple complaints about.... mostly stemming from a subpar sidewall...

I put 1270 miles on the fuzion this past weekend and 450 miles of that was in the rain at speeds up to 85MPH. all this took place 2up with the trailer on. It held the road OK, but it just don't feel right especialy in the curves.
The tire doesn't hold the road half a good as the Triple tread and the ride is a lot rougher, the Fuzion also seems to find the grooves much easier than the Triple Tread and the Falken. The tire also feels like it has to much flex in it as well. Also is you have clearance problems with the Triple tread the Fuzion will probably rub. When I switched from the TT to the Fuzion I had to go in and trim my hitch some to clear the fuzion.
I wil be switching back to the TT in the next week or so.

In all my reading the Michelin HE tires seem to be rated very highly. Sure happy with mine. Rides and handles very well. Not real high speed rated but then I never run faster than 85 for any length of time. Who the H can afford to anymore?
