Dry and wet traction
Quiet riding tire
As a low cost option in new tires, the FP6000 AS is really a pretty good choice.
It's ideal for drivers looking for a tire to get them to and from work and around town. It has the traction and
handling you need, and the ride is not at all uncomfortable.
That said, you won't mistake this model for a more expensive Michelin, Continental
or other major brand name tire, but that's not what this tire is built for. However, if saving a lot of money and
simply having a basic needs tire is what you are after, the FP6000 is up to the task.
