Buy these tyres...I am somewhat lucky that the car I drive is a company car & I choose how it is looked after & can spend any amount within reason. I was advised by a chap at Citroen, if I did not want to replace with the original Michelin, then they would recommend these Firestones... Thank you kind chap at Citroen, these are very good. I drive all over the country in all seasons / weather & they have been amazing...I will not buy or recommend any other tyre than these...You will be happy.Tyre size reviewed: 215-55-16-W
Having discovered Firestone TZ200 a few years back and was impressed with their good overall performance and longevity I changed to a full new set of these. Great decision, they are as good if not better.Tyre size reviewed: 195-60-15-H
A lot of reviewers are bashing these tyres for not performing on ice and snow while forgetting that it's a SUMMER TYRE. You're going to get a decrease in performance when temperatures drop. This review is for summer performance only.
I've been on a new set of 4 of these for 6 months now in a front heavy diesel that I like to throw about. Simply put I don't think you'll do too much better in terms of grip for my size of tyre on my type of car. I regularly drive quite fast on some tight twisty roads in my locality and these tyres hold on really well. The only problem is the lack of feedback afforded by the fat side walls (65) on the size of tyre I've got fitted. Under steer is more often indicated by the extra steering angle you will notice yourself having to apply rather than any sensation coming back through the wheel. Even past the limit they are quite predictable only requiring you to lift off or brake lightly to bring it back. I have never, not even once, felt that the rear was going to let go.
Diminished grip in the wet is hardly noticeable and I've ploughed through large bodies of standing water without aquaplaning. I haven't managed to get myself into trouble with this tyre in either the dry or the wet.
At the rate of wear I'm seeing I'd estimate (with proper tyre rotation) I'll get at least 20,000 miles out of this set which I think is great considering how hard I'm leaning on them.
They don't seem much quieter then the last tyres that were on the car but most road surfaces here, including motorways, are quite coarse so noise levels tend to depend more on the build of your car than your tyres. They don't drive me crazy with noise so I haven't been harsh with the score.
If I was buying the same size/class of tyres again I'd definitely consider these unless a better deal was available. I bought these tyres fitted and with the old ones recycled for 60 euros per wheel.

I had these tyres for 25000 miles on my Fiat Punto, now I put on the back. They have still good tread. These tyres are excellent on the dry, wet and I have driven them even on the snow and they made a very good work (They behaved as snow tyres). When I purchased them 8almost two years ago they were more cheap than now. I suggest these tyres even if I like to try different brand.Tyre size reviewed: 185-60-14-H
Having always gone for average brand tyres, I just so happened to come across these at quite a good price, and being Firestone I thought I would give them a go.
I was amazed at the amount of grip they had! As these were fitted to the front axle, it became apparent at how much extra grip these tyres had compared to the rear ones (when the rear decided to step out for the first time in the wet!)
You have to brake/corner very hard with these if you actually want them to lose grip. Dry or wet conditions these are very good, quiet with zero vibration and hard wearing.
Highly recommended if you can find them for less than Â£100 each!

Surprisingly good tyre. Very good in the wet or dry. Sharp handling and yet quite comfortable. Far better feedback and grip than previous Michelin Energy Saver. Fuel consumption of car marginally less good it seems, although this is difficult to calculate accurately. Great value.Tyre size reviewed: 205-60-15-V
Have Firestone tz300a all round on my 2013 panda multijet, I have found them very comfortable over all road surfaces, dry grip excellent, wet weather very good and handles the torque very well from the multijet diesel, have not reached their limit and would not try to, they have worn in well and after 12000 miles still seems to be plenty of wear in them, would certainly buy again.Tyre size reviewed: 185-55-15-H
