Firestone Precision Touring Tire Review & Rating
The Firestone Precision Touring offers all-season traction and handling to go with a more smooth and comfortable ride. Designed for drivers of all types of coupes, sedans and minivans, the Precision Touring is engineered to provide a longer lasting treadlife for dependable everyday performance.
An all-season tread compound that includes added silica, combines with rounded shoulders and deeper grooves for added dry traction and cornering grip, while also providing increased steering response and feel.
Four circumferential grooves around the tread evacuate water from under the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Multiple sipes add the bite necessary to safely drive through snow packed road surfaces. Winter traction is another area that many drivers have mentioned as being very good on this tire.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts with nylon reinforcement for added strength and durability. A polyester cord carcass further enhances ride quality and better overall handling. Firestone has 15-17 inch sizes available, and the tire comes with up to an H-speed rating. Firestone includes a 70,000 mile tread guarantee.
- Outstanding dry and wet traction
- Steering is crisp and responsive
- Above average winter performance
- Excellent ride comfort
- Long tread life and a 70,000 mile warranty
- Would like to see just a little less road noise
The Precision Touring is a lower costing all-season tire that ranks right up there in the upper half of this class with other models like the Michelin Defender and Continental TrueContact. Traction on wet, dry and even snow covered road surfaces is very good. The steering inspires confidence in all driving situations and cornering performance is good for an all-season touring tire.
Perhaps the biggest plus for this tire is its smooth and comfortable ride. This took us by surprise, and is an area that has also been mentioned favorably by a large number of other drivers. The only real issue we could find with the ride is that road noise is noticeable at times. It is nothing to excessive, and like most tires it tends to get a little more noticeable as the tread wears down.
Overall, we feel this is one of Firestone’s best passenger car tires. It offers exceptional value for the low cost and is highly recommended.
