I HAVE A 1982 CAMARO AND HAVE 4, P225 50ZR15
FIRESTONE FIREHAWK SZ50'S ON MY CAR
NOT ONLY DOES MY CAR HANDLE BETTER
THAN IT EVER HAS .... WHEN COMPARED TO
BF GOODRICH RADIAL T/A'S CORNERING ABILITY
IS NOT EVEN COMPARABLE. AS FAR AS LIFETIME
OF THE TIRE ,,,,,, AS COMPARED TO GOODYEAR
GATERBACK "Z" SPEED RATED TIRES, THE FIRESTONE
TIRE GIVES 30,000 MILES AS COMPARED TO THEIR
25,000 LIFESPAND ... Z RATED TIRES ARE NOT LIKE
OTHER TIRES --- THEY DO NOT HAVE A LONG LIFE
SPAND AND IF YOU RUN OVER A NAIL THE TIRE IS
NO LONGER Z RATED IF FIXED WITH A PATCH
SO IT THEN NEEDS REPLACED TO BE THE SAME
AS FAR AS WET ROAD, A TIRED STOCK 305 WOULD
BARK SECOND EVERY TIME WITH THE 350TURBO
TRANS WITH A SHIFT KIT AND THE BF GOODRICH
TIRES .... NOW -- 50% OF THE TIME I CAN BARK SECOND
ON WET PAVMENT --- NEVER ON DRY --
AS FAR AS DEFECTIVE TIRES --- IT SOUNDS LIKE
THE FIRESTONE DEALER YOU WERE DEALING
WITH DID NOT WANT TO STAND BY HIS PRODUCT
HE WAS SELLING. DEFECTIVE TIRES ARE A FACT OF LIFE -- IT'S A DAMB SHAME THAT A DEALER,
MAKING ALOT OF MONEY WILL NOT EVEN STAND
BY THE PRODUCT HE OR SHE IS SELLING..
I AM SORRY YOU HAD A BUNK TIME WITH FIRESTONE
BUTI BEALIVE THE PERSON YOU WERE DEALING
WITH IS THE PROBLEM, NOT THE COMPANY HE
OR SHE REPRESENTS.
IF YOU REPLY TO THIS ONLY TO TELL ME
I AM VERY CONFUSED AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT
I AM TALKING ABOUT THATS OKAY
MABEY I NEED TOLD THAT

BE THE COOLEST YOU CAN BE
