Fuzion Tire Reviews
Fuzion Tire is a sub-brand of Bridgestone/Firestone aimed at offering budget-focused tires, backed by world-class manufacturing and quality you can trust.
Originally launched at the Speciality Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) show in 2003, Fuzion tires were designed to focus on enthusiasts looking for a more budget-focused offering. The brand’s first tire, the ZRi has since been replaced by the UHP Sport AS.
Since then Fuzion has expanded its offering, though it remains quite limited with four different tires, limiting its overall market reach. Its also been realigned to focus more on other areas of the budget segment, maintaining a foothold in the enthusiast segment while also offering options for more mainstream vehicles and driving styles.
Fuzion’s four offerings are as follows:
Fuzion Touring AS – The brand’s longest lasting tire with a 55,000 mile warranty, it’s designed to deliver a premium ride experience with reduced noise, heightened comfort and all-season grip.
Fuzion AT – An all-terrain tire capable of offering civilized on-road performance with off-road grip when you need it.
Fuzion SUV – A conventional all-season tire designed to offer heightened grip in wet weather and built to withstand the extra demands of being on an SUV or crossover.
Fuzion UHP Sport AS – An all-season performance tire designed to deliver plenty of grip for sports cars and sports sedans, while also offering wet weather traction,
Fuzion Tire Warranty

After that point and until the final 2/32-inch of tread wear (and within the first five years of ownership) Fuzion will replace defective tires on a pro-rated basis.
