The Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 is a high performance, summer tire manufactured for passenger and performance vehicles. The dry and wet weather road gripping ability is enhanced with the combination of the compound and the tread design. The circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by eliminating water from the tire footprint. The tread design and tire compound shorten the braking distance and boost the cornering ability and power. The internal structure and the shoulder tread pattern enhance the steering responsiveness and driving stability. The Firehawk Indy 500’s reinforced internal structure ensures excellent high speed driving stability and durability.
