I have SZ50's, which are the high-end Firestone tires. I think this may be a case of you get what you pay for. The SZ50's are great.


: Good question! The Firestone guy said that because of the advanced new compound they needed to be broken in for at least 500 miles. I came back after 1000 saying they still squealed in corners. He swore that they would be great after some more break in.

: Well, 5000 miles later, they still suck. You must have a different SZ. Mine are SZ41.

: The worst part is what jerks they were in email though.

: fyi//CL

: >I actually don't understand why you recommended them in the first place, if you feel they are slippery everywhere (dry/rain), don't break well, and howl. Did you recommend them before you even had them on your car? :)
