So, for those not familiar, 2014 VW SportWagen TDI. Car is currently in the dealer for the 80,000 mile service... Oil change, fuel filter, and transmission fluid and filter service. Plus, I'm trying to get them to cover my busted sunshade under warranty. Its an expensive one. Dealer calls, and car needs new tires and rear brakes too. My budget right now is already stretched, so I was looking for a value tire, but came across the Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter LRR tire for $90/ea with free shipping. The next LRR tires I see are nearly double in price. Has anyone here tried them? I'm sure they're noisier than a regular tire, but is it objectionable? Are the trade offs in this tire not worth the fuel economy gains? I'm tempted just to go for them, simply because its the cheapest name brand tire I can find right now, and if I don't like them, I can ditch them in a couple years when money isn't so tight.
