Features:

The Firestone SZ90 tyres are high performance passenger car tyres from Firestone Tyres, the tyre manufacturer, long associated with producing affordable, high quality tyres. While these tyres may not belong to the ultra high performance category, they definitely bring out the fun in driving and are pioneers in what is called the ‘light sport’ category. For most of us negotiating everyday traffic in our daily work commute or in the school run, a little bit of fun in the drive can make a lot of difference. Variations of these tyres, Firestone SZ90 XL tyres, are suitable for larger vehicles.

Reliable Handling: The Firestone SZ90 tyres exhibit a dynamic asymmetric design that incorporates unique shaped tread blocks on the outer tyre shoulder. These blocks increase the contact patch between the surface and the tread on dry roads, resulting in reliable handling and precise steering responsiveness. This tread arrangement also confers exceptional cornering stability, keeping you safe while negotiating those tricky turns.
Improved Safety on Wet Surfaces: From the tyre shoulder, moving inwards, the Firestone SZ90 tyres exhibit 3 wide circumferential grooves that deflect water from the tread area. The central groove is incorporated with a 3D tie bar that confers additional stiffness to the central tread and also improves connection between the central tread blocks. As a result, the water deflection action becomes even more efficient, resulting in superior safety, grip and control on wet surface.
Increased Braking Responsiveness: High grip on wet and dry surfaces increases traction levels, resulting in better braking response and shorter braking distances to enhance the safety at all times.
Quiet Comfortable Ride: The Firestone SZ90 tyres are associated with delivering a quiet, comfortable ride.

Previously fitted with Bridgstone Rotenza - the Firestones were less expensive and as far as I can tell at the moment are just as good. It is difficult to be accurate about wear at this stage as they have only been fitted for a few weeks. The decision over what to replace them with will be made solely on the wear factor, but currently I would be minded to fit the Firestones again.
