The Firestone Winterhawk 4 finished in the 9th position out of several competitors, receiving a final rating of "Not recommended." Despite being praised as a winter specialist with good aquaplaning qualities and a low price level, significant drawbacks were highlighted that impacted its overall performance. The tyre demonstrated strong understeering during dry handling, delayed steering response, and extended braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces. Despite these criticisms, it's important to note that the Firestone Winterhawk 4 excelled in snow braking, snow cornering, and snow handling, indicating its effectiveness under specific winter conditions. However, these strengths were not enough to offset the identified weaknesses, leading to its final evaluation.
