The Firestone Firehawk Sport summer tyre has received mixed reviews in various tests. In the Autobild test, the tyre was praised for its new sport profile, agile handling on dry roads, short braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces, outstandingly low rolling resistance, and low price level. However, it received criticism for its average aquaplaning properties, delayed steering response, and significant understeer in cornering on wet surfaces.
Similarly, the Sportauto test highlighted the tyre's good wet braking performance, precise steering, and reliable wet grip, as well as its balanced and easily manageable dry driving properties. It also has the lowest rolling resistance among the tested tyres. However, it falls short in terms of cornering aquaplaning.
In summary, the Firestone Firehawk Sport summer tyre is a reasonably priced option with excellent handling on dry surfaces and short braking distances on both wet and dry roads. It has outstandingly low rolling resistance, but its performance in aquaplaning situations and steering response on wet surfaces could be improved.
Firestone Firehawk Sport is made in 33 sizes, starting from 215/35 R18 up to 275/35 R20.
Firestone Firehawk Sport is made in Italy.
