Champion HR = horrible tires

Complaint Rating:  61 % with 41 votes
Contact information:
Redmond, Washington
United States
Mileage on my Prius has NEVER been below 50 MPG in 45, 000-plus miles of driving. Has nosedived to 43 MGP since having Firestone Champion HR tires installed. The "HR" must stand for "huge reduction" -- these are the WORST tires I have ever owned.

Lousy wet-road traction to boot. Stay away from these dogs...

Firestone Champion HR tire blew out on the freeway. Manager says I was driving with a flat. Their warranty is bubkis, and no customer service from the District, either. NEVER BUY FROM THESE RIP OFF ARTISTS!

What tires you use instead Champion HR? What about mileage - whether it had enhanced? (sorry for my English)

Use someone else - Firestone

7.5 hours for a state inspection and oil change. 'Nuff said...

It is horrible.
my 2000 accord always drove over 400 miles on highway with full tank, but I can't anymore.
also it's amazingly horrible on the snow.

FIRESTONE HOMER GLEN, IL PUT ME ON CHAMPION HR WITH FREE BALANCE AND ALIGNMENT OPTION. I HAD VIBRATING STEERING WHEEL AND NOISE WHICH THEY SAID WAS WARPED ROTORS SO I HAD THOSE REPLACED WITH THEIR OTHER CLAIM OF BAD STRUTS ON MY 50K MILE MAXIMA. WHEN I REPORTED STILL HAVING THE NOISE THEY SAID THE TIRES MUST BE DAMAGED FROM THE PARTS THEY HAD TO REPLACE AND OFFERED TO PRORATE AND GIVE ME NEW TIRES. I ASKED TWICE FOR THEM TO CALL ME WITH A PRICE FOR THIS AND NEVER RECEIVED A CALL BACK. WHAT TERRIBLE SCAM ARTISTS THESE FOLKS ARE.

hartmandesign, your Prius came with Low Rolling Resistance tires (LRR) as oem. You purchased the Champion HR tires, which are a performance all season tire, which is not designed with MPG in mind. The fact that you cannot fathom why you've lost MPG reinforces the stereotype of the typical arrogant know nothing Prius driver.

The Firestone Champion HR tires are the worst tires I have ever had. Both rear tires blew out on me, and the front passenger side got a huge bubble in it. This was all in a year and half's time. They told me the same "you tire was flat and it compromised the sidewall" story. However my tire was never flat or below 30psi. Very brittle, fragile, horrible tires.
