Firestone Firehawk Indy 500
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Summer weather traction
- Enhanced cornering ability
- Shorter braking distance
- Excellent high speed durability
- Upgraded handling
The Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 is a high performance, summer tire manufactured for passenger vehicles and SUVs. This model has some touring sizes as well.
The tire promotes excellent summer weather road gripping ability. The new high performance silica-enhanced L. L. Carbon tire compound and the aggressive asymmetric tread pattern work together to ensure a safe driving experience in dry and wet weather. The silica in the compound and the L. L. Carbon strengthen the tire and ensure exceptional wet weather road gripping ability. The center Proprietary Pulse Grooves upgrade the tire’s water dispersing ability to ensure a safe drive in wet conditions by preventing dangerous hydroplaning situations.
The tread pattern sports wide shoulder tread blocks that improve the cornering and maneuvering ability. They provide additional biting edges which firmly grip the road during such maneuvers. They maintain road contact at all times, which makes the tire’s maneuverability exceptional. The special innovative tire compound and the tread pattern’s center circumferential grooves boost the road grip during braking. They create friction at the moment of braking which ensures a shorter braking distance and heightened braking ability. The better braking and cornering make the tire easier to control in summer weather conditions.
The Firehawk Indy 500’s internal structure and the shoulder tread design’s large tread blocks promote a better steering responsiveness and driving stability. The structure features high-turnup polyester casing and twin high-tensile steel belt and nylon reinforcements that maintain the tire’s optimal shape under the driving pressure. As the tire keeps its original shape, it does not deform under the driving forces affecting it, which not only stabilizes the tire against the pressure, but it also allows the model to perform to its utmost capability. The tread pattern keeps its contact with the road which upgrades the steering responsiveness, allowing the driver to quickly and precisely control the vehicle.
