|Comment||Barry, thank you so much. I will look into the prices of the H rated tires and make a decision soon. I feel better having your opinion and you mentioned the softness of the ride compared to a V rated tire which from what I understand on the Ford Fusions, was put on them as the car ( some models) are considered a performance car ( tire ). As I have the base model and don't drive over 80-85 mph I think I can at least consider the H rated tire. Thanks again and have a great day.|
I have over 30 years experience in the design, manufacturing, and testing of tires. I have served as the technical advisor to the "800" number. I have authored or co-authored many publications - usually without credit. I can answer almost any technical question, but please don`t ask me to compare brands. I probably have prejudices because of my work experience.
