Has anybody tried the new Fuel saver type tires on their Chargers? I was looking at getting new tires and the Goodyear Fuel Max tires look like the tread pattern is simular to the stock Goodyear Integrity tires that came with the car. They are about the same price so I thoo=ught I would give them a try.

Subscribed. I too would like to hear from some charger owners who are trying this tire out. This tire hasn't been out long so I'm interested to see some reviews. Here's a link to some details on this tire for those that are interested.

i'd love to see it. In theory the only way to reduce rolling resistance is to remove tread which would decrease traction (more gaps in the tread). None of the info i've seen on the tire has any information outside of "fuel saving polymer" which is a terrible description of trying to figure out what they think they are accomplishing.
However as stated , it looks like a ol integrity tire and those have always been good tires so you got nothing to lose

Really?? the "Crudtegrity"? Maybe they are okay for their first 15,000 miles. Mine did not last 40k with light driving on our SE's small V6 (properly balanced and aligned). And that is twice as good as many who replaced worn multiple Integrity sets after only 10-20,000 miles. Would have replaced them sooner if I didn't have to save for replacement, sure worth the extra few bucks to get SAFER tires though I got Yokohoma's for less than the OEMs. I'd recommend not using the Integrity when there are better tires with similar prices to choose from (once the OEM GYs need to be replaced).

*scatpackmopar*-...But you can research Fuel Max and decide, they should be a better compound than non-specialty tires... everyone is a critic with different preferences. Some places to check out the :tirerack.com, nextag.com, 1010tires.com all have the Integrity with low-to average ratings. Even these guys http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=41819 had problems with the "stick it on every make and base model because its kind-of "cheap" OEM tire. OEM tires in general are not covered by any warranty, so tire producers have little to lose by making a tire that little more than functions to get a vehicle from the production line to the dealership.

Neither I nor my wife felt safe with Integrity tires barely holding the Charger steady in wide low-speed left-hand turns while our 2-year-old son giggles and imitates the screeching noise. Lanes changes used to feel drifty. There is virtually no traction to even get the Charger moving in the lightest amount of snow, and more slipping than should be tolerated on lightly wet roads.

I had the integrity tires and the lasted until 43000 miles and i just changed them out yesterday, i used them everyday through hot/dry weather, and very little rain, in the past months they would loss traction on the slightest of acceleration and i was even approached by police cause they thought i was hauling A$$ because my tires would screech after every take off. I currently purchased the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred which by goodyears standards are rated better than the fuelmax and i can tell you this: i have better traction, better handling, low road noise, i decelerate better, the tires don't screech when i accelerate, and they can H-rated so you can go up to 130 mph and not worry about your tires blowing up on you, though i can say this and i don't recommend it but i got up to 140 mph on the integrity tires. I haven't taken the TripleTred to high speeds yet but i plan to break them in a little bit till like 500 miles and then i will test at higher speeds and if we ever get rain again down here i will test the wet traction, and i haven't seen snow in years so i probably won't be able to comment on that. Personally i would recommend going with the triple tred mainly because its rated better by goodyear compared to fuelmax and integrity.

If they made the tire for my jeep i would put them on there too, but i hope to find something close to that as my jeep needs new tires too.

I will have some new tires by next weekend ready for a 1500 mile round trip. There were Fule Max goodyear eagles but they did not come in the sizes I wanted [sidewall's were too short for the ride I want to achieve] I can give a full report in a few eeks after I get back from the trip
