satisfactory
Ranked #9 of 13
Finishing 9th out of 13 competitors, the Firestone Firehawk Sport earned a 'Satisfactory' rating in its latest evaluation. This tire stood out for its newly designed sport profile which contributes to agile handling on dry roads, along with its short braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces. Additionally, it boasted an outstandingly low rolling resistance and was noted for its economical price point. However, it was held back by its average performance in aquaplaning scenarios, a delayed steering response, and a tendency to understeer in wet conditions. Notably, the tire performed exceptionally well in terms of exterior noise and rolling resistance, marking its strong points in these specific areas.
