Firestone TZ300 tyres are comfortable and predictable. Absolute traction parameters cannot be rated neither for 6 nor for 5 because there are much bette tyres, and on dry 6 would be for a slick and 5 for a sports tyre. For a civilian tyre, the parameters are very good. Decent handling, taking some really aggressive driving into account, and thus, the tyres give a lot of confidence. They are also good on wet, although not as much as Uniroyal tyres. Braking can be also also rated for 4-5. The tyre is very trustworthy - it handles aggressive treatment in a 200 BHP car very well and does a good job in handling the power. They can "indicate" when you are about to lose grip nicely, but they also don't lean in like aforementioned Uniroyals.. For this price, Firestone TZ300 is a tyre worth recommending. There are definitely better tyres for higher prices, but in this range Firestone TZ300 is one of the best. It's very comfortable, quiet and absorbs bumps nicely. Also, their rolling noise is barely audible.
Tyres grip in the corners very well. With my dynamic driving style I've practically never experienced any over- od understeer. They behave great on wet and dry surface. The only drawback is the fact they can cause a wheelspin when starting on wet. When braking on wet the Firestone TZ300 are already very good. Unfortunately my tyre cracked across the tread line, between the grooves, at the edge of the tyre. A crack was about an inch long - and all I could do was to scrap the tyre after two seasons and about 15 000 miles (and I onl drive in the city and a bit outside of it). The tyre is not very durable and wears fairly quickly. However, I can definitely recommend the Firestone TZ300 as it's a tyre for our typical conditions.
Firestone TZ300 is a superb tyre if we treat it in accordance with its intended purpose - use from spring to late autumn. Its traction is definitely OK, it gives greatg grip in the corners, nicely disperses water to the sides, so we have to be aware of bypassers, I have already experienced how effectively the bypassers can be splashed. I also advise not to wait with changing to winter tyres, because driving on snow or ice is difficult and dangerous, braking is great (I gave 5 points), and I can personally recommend Firestone TZ300 to everyone, because the price for such quality is really not high.
Firestone TZ300 tyres have so far met my expectations. Grip, riding comfort and high resistance to wear is my assessment of the tyres after first summer season with a distance of about five thousand miles covered. My driving style can be assessed as moderate to dynamic. I had no problems with the mastery of a class B front wheel drive car with ca. 85 HP in dry or wet conditions, whether driving around the city, or hurrying over to the seaside. To conclude, I find Firestone TZ300 a reasonable choice in this price class.
Two years ago, when I bought the Firestone TZ300, the model was just entering the market, so it was hard to get any omre information than praises from the manucaturer. Today, if I were to buy new tyres, I would definitely not buy this model because it is a typical tyre for driving in high temperatures, and you get problems as soon as rain begins to fall. As for me, it's loud in comparison to cheaper Klebers which I had before Firestone TZ300. I can only recommend them to those who don't leave home when it rains.

Technology description: Firestone TZ300 is the successor of Firestone TZ200 which was a very popular product. Its designers made efforts so that the next generation of the model is distinguished by a higher driving comfort. And this is what they did. The tyre presents a higher stiffness rate, which dampens the vibration generated during driving. In this case, its stiffness also guarantees higher mileage. Thanks to this, the vibration present on the tyre’s surface are properly distributed which consequently has an influence on the even distribution of the tread. The excellent comfort of the tyre is also the effect of the profiled gaps between the tread blocks that considerably reduce the rolling resistance. This not only results in a lower fuel consumption, but also in a silent operation. Besides comfort, the designers obviously took care to reach the maximum possible safety level. The shoulder blocks show a high grip and bite into the road. This ensures excellent grip and good braking. The tyre performs extremely well, not only on dry surfaces, but also in wet conditions. This is possible thanks to the deep tread pattern, whose long grooves drain water from the tyre perfectly. The excellent performance of the tyre is noticeable not only on straight roads but also at bends.
Information on the manufacturer: Firestone is an American brand who manufacture tyres for different types of vehicles. It is owned by the Japanese group Bridgestone. The company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio (USA), which was then the world capital of the tyre industry. In 1988 Firestone was taken over by Bridgestone, a group well known by drivers.
When producing the tyre a different compound mixture has been used. Tyre gained better characteristics.
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.
Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.
Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
