Fuzion AT Review

Built for capability off-road and civility around town, does the Fuzion AT deliver as promised?

PROS

  • Attractive pricing
  • Rugged looks

CONS

  • Limited sizes
  • Mediocre grip
  • Louder than most
  • Not easy to find

Part of Bridgestone’s budget lineup of Fuzion tires, the Fuzion AT features a conventional five-row tread pattern in line with most all-terrain and all-season tires to give solid handling on-road. Some users complain grip isn’t great in the wet and overallĀ  handling capability isn’t great.

The tire looks the part with a squared-off shoulder making it an attractive option for truck, SUV an Jeep owners. There are wide circumferential grooves to prevent against hydroplaning, although there isn’t really a lot of void space between the tread blocks and so off-road grip is limited. In many respects this really looks the part of an all-terrain tire but doesn’t really deliver off-road.

On-road, owners do have complaints that road noise is louder than it probably should be.

In terms of the tire’s construction it’s built with two steel belts wrapped in nylon as well as a casing that utilizes two polyester piles. This is a conventional construction for an all-terrain tire and is designed to allow the tire to hold up over time under heavier loads, while still offering a more comfortable ride quality on the street.

The tire’s 45,000 mile tread life warranty is low, but considering the price point, it’s acceptable.

There’s some winter grip in these tires thanks to siping on the tread blocks, although we’d advise that these aren’t really winter-capable and they are not certified with the three-peak mountain snowflake logo. For a list of all-terrain tires that are, see here.

Overall, we find these tires make too many compromises in terms of off-road capability and on-road civility. They do look the part and for the low price that might be all you’re after. Unfortunately, if you are, these tires can be hard to find with not a lot of retailers and those that do carry them seem to only offer limited sizes.

Fuzion AT Warranty

Fuzion backs the Fuzion AT tire with a 45,000 mile tread life warranty. In addition, all Fuzion tires are covered by a standard limited warranty. This warranty protects you against defects in materials and workmanship. If a defect is found in the first 2/32-inch of tread life Fuzion will replace the tire for free. Defects found after that point and down until the final 2/32-inch of tread life will be replaced on a pro-rated basis, taking into account the amount of tread life left.
