Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Tire Reviews

Product Details

The Firehawk Wide Oval w/UNI-T is Firestone's Ultra High Performance Summer tire for today's driving enthusiasts in much the same way the original Wide Oval, the industry's first low profile, bias-ply performance tire, helped revolutionize high performance passenger tires in the late 1960s. Today's Firehawk Wide Oval radial tires were developed for high performancesports cars, coupes and sedans, and are designed to provide world-class handling, performance and durability on wet and dry roads. The Firehawk Wide Oval is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

Firestone's Ultimate Network of Intelligent Tire Technology (UNI-T) features three core elements: CO'CS, a Computer Optimized Component System which allows design and manufacturing processes to work more cooperatively, leading to a more efficient tire that doesn't significantly sacrifice one area of performance for improvements in another; O-Bead, a more round structure that minimizes overlapped joints in the bead area for improved ride;and L.L. Carbon (Long Link Carbon) which helps the rubber compound resist microscopic tread tearing related to wear.

On the outside, the Firehawk Wide Oval features high performance silica-enhanced L.L. Carbon tread rubber compound molded into an independent-block, directional tread design to blend responsive handling along with wet and dry traction, while circumferential and lateral grooves team up to provide hydroplaning resistance. On the inside, the Firehawk Wide Oval features twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon ply to provide strength, stability and high-speed capability.
