Fuzion XTi Tire Review & Rating
The XTi is Fuzion’s on and off-road tire that is built to provide unique styling, dependable year round performance and a lower price point than other tires in its class. Over the years this tire has been used as original equipment on a number of different pickups and SUV’s, as well as being a replacement option.
A tougher tread compound that includes L.L. Carbon for added strength in resisting tears and punctures is matched with a symmetric tread pattern. Off-road performance is enhanced through the tire’s over-the-shoulder and half pipe tread design, while on-road drivability is increased with independent tread blocks and a continuous center rib.
Performance on wet roads, and in winter weather conditions, is improved with circumferential and lateral grooves around the tread that channel away water from the tire’s footprint. Added siping provides biting edges that give the tire more grip on snow and ice, something that other driver reviews and ratings have mentioned as a strong point.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that provide added strength and durability at all speeds, while the polyester cord body increases ride comfort and promotes more even treadwear. Fuzion offers two different styling options for the sidewall that you can choose from. One is a tribal band and the other a ring of flames.
- On-road dry and wet traction is excellent
- Off-road and winter performance is solid
- Cornering grip is very good
- Ride is comfortable and quiet for this type of tire
- Treadlife could be better
The Fuzion XTi offers surprisingly good performance from a tire you may not have heard much about. Both on and off-road traction and handling are very good. In fact, its traction is among the better tires in this class.
Ride comfort is equally as impressive, and you won’t find a lot of the bothersome road noise from this tire as you can find from other off-road tires. The downside may be its treadlife. We’ve heard some drivers mention getting 25,000 miles out of the tread which is not that good. To be fair, we have heard others say they have gotten far better mileage.
Overall, the much lower price on the XTi combined with its solid performance, make this tire a very good choice for anyone looking to save some money on an on/off road tire.
