ADAC Summer tyre test 2023 205/55 R16
Ranked #20 of 50
Finishing 20 out of 50 competitors, the Firestone Roadhawk demonstrated a commendable performance in the summer evaluation. Earning a final rating of 'Good', it stood out for its excellent handling on dry roads, lightweight and efficient nature, and minimal tyre wear, making it a strong choice for drivers prioritizing these factors. However, its performance was not without drawbacks; it was criticized for its imbalance and notably inferior wet road handling, which ultimately affected its overall score. The tyre's safety on wet surfaces was only deemed satisfactory, with shortcomings in aquaplaning resistance and braking distances. Despite performing well in certain tests like aquaplaning, it struggled to provide the same level of grip and handling in wet conditions, leading to a satisfactory evaluation in this area. Additionally, its environmental impact was somewhat marred by its predicted mileage being rated only satisfactory. This was attributed to its performance in road wear and fuel consumption, which, despite being considered good, did not compensate for the lower score in tyre longevity.
