Has anyone had a problem with their Firestone tires on the Jeep Compass? My dealer said there has been a problem with the Firestone tires on Jeep Compass. My tires only have 23,000 miles and they make the car shake, makes noises and are already wearing out. Thanks.
Your dealer didn't lie. The 18" Firehawks are probably the worst. Cupping, noisy and pretty much worn out between about 23K and 30K if your lucky. The 17" Affinitys aren't quite as bad but most people are glad to be rid of them when they change.
Artificial intelligence is no substitute for natural stupidity
Why has Jeep stuck with the Firehawks on the Compass? Did they know, after the first year or so, that the tire sucked and found a better product!? There aren't leaving a great "I want to buy all my vehicle from Jeep" feeling with issues like this...
I have the stock Goodyear All Weather Eagle LS-2’s (P205/70R16) on my Patriot and so far they are fine. Keep in mind that I’ve only had my “Pat” about a month; but they do seem very road worthy and give a very quiet ride.
BTW The Goodyear equivalent for a Compass is the P215/60R17. Other than size, I can’t imagine that they’d be much different than mine.
