Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 Tire Reviews

Product Details

Firestone’s participation in the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race represents one of the longest relationships in motor sports. When you combine all of the Indy 500 victories earned by Firestone at the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, you have rich tradition backed by a history of performance. The Firehawk INDY 500® is a Performance All-Season tire that was developed for the drivers of cars and light trucks that want to celebrate that tradition by combining Firehawk performance tires with the INDY 500 and “Wings and Wheel” logo of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Firehawk INDY 500 with UNI-T uses Firestone’s WeatherGrip HP Tread Compound molded into an independent block tread pattern to enhance year-round traction. The tread pattern also uses Firestone’s “Power V” derived technology to further enhance wet traction. Internally, the Firehawk INDY 500 tire’s twin steel belts and polyester cord body deliver responsive handling and cornering stability along with a smooth ride. Additionally, a single strand of steel that is spirally wound is used to form beads that are rounder for a better fit to the wheel and to further enhance handling and ride quality.

Summary: Very Good
March 5th, 2011

I bought these tires for my Ranger to replace thr stock Contitracs. Difference was night and day. They were smooth, quiet and had wonderful grip in rain.

However, they were useless in the snow. But that really shouldnt be blamed on the tire, these arent supposed to be an all-terrain tire. Hands down the best rain/shine tires
