Fuzion UHP Tire Review & Rating

The Fuzion UHP is built to deliver high performance all-season traction along with aggressive handling for drivers of various sport coupes and compacts.

A high performance all-season tread compound combines with a directional tread pattern to give this tire increased traction on dry pavement. Larger and deeply grooved shoulder blocks enhance cornering grip and provide added steering response.

Three circumferential grooves and angled intermediate grooves increase wet surface handling and help reduce the risk of hydroplaning by evacuating water away from the tire. Multiple sipes around the tread provide biting edges that deliver traction in light snow.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are nylon reinforced for added strength and durability throughout the speed range. A polyester cord body further increases ride quality, while also enhancing tread wear. The UHP includes a built-in rim guard that protects your wheels from curb damage. Fuzion offers 17-18 tire sizes that come with a W-speed rating.

Pros

  • Dry traction and handling is excellent 
  • Cornering grip and stability 
  • Responsive steering 
  • Good ride quality 

Cons

  • Shorter treadlife 
  • Wet handling could be better 

Overall Thoughts

The UHP is like many low-cost high performance all-season tires… it does some things very well, but it also has its issues in other important areas. Dry traction and cornering performance is one of the areas this tire excels in. It offers good handling and stability, with the steering providing better than average feel. On the flipside, wet handling could be better. You could slide the rear end out if you’re not paying attention to your speed when cornering.

Ride quality is better than you might expect on this type of tire, and road noise is not excessive. We would like to see a little better treadlife from this tire, but for the price it’s to be expected. Overall, there are better tires in this class, but if you are on a smaller budget this is a good option.
