The Firehawk Indy 500® tire is Firestone's ultimate in sport performance, inspired by our racing heritage. With our new tread design featuring a proprietary Pulse Groove water channel, we have dramatically improved handling and braking on wet roads (as compared to the Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500® tire). And with a new outer tread design, you can take a corner with great confidence. So if you’re a car enthusiast looking for a tire that can provide extreme performance and extreme fun, this is the tire for you. W speed rated.

  • CORNER WITH CONFIDENCE
    The latest Firestone Firehawk Indy 500® tire lets you corner with confidence featuring wide shoulders that increase the tire’s stiffness to provide dynamic cornering.
  • 20% SHORTER STOPPING DISTANCE ON WET ROADS
    With an improved rubber compound and tread design, the new Indy 500® tire gives you a 20% shorter stopping distance on wet roads, as compared to the prior generation Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 tire.
  • THE PULSE GROOVE CHANNEL HELPS REDUCE THE RISK OF HYDROPLANING
    The proprietary Pulse Groove channel in the tread pattern takes water evacuation to the next level helping to improve wet handling and reduce the risk of hydroplaning.

The ride quality is night and day compared to my old set of cheap s595 tires and these are actually cheaper. So quiet and smooth, hard to believe these tires make such a difference. 255/35/18 and 272/35/18 sizes. Will definitely buy another set once these are due.

Took them to a hillclimb event, and my goodness are they grippy. Didn't really expect them to have PSS levels of grip, but they're up there. On another note, why am I being forced to leave a snow rating for summer tires?! That's stupid.

When I bought my TL in 2012 I was not happy that it came with all season tires. Since it is mandatory in Quebec to have winter ires in winter I wanted summer tires for the rest of the year. My all seasons finally wore out so it was my chance to get summer tires. Based on the reviews the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 were a combination best value, best reviews. OMG what a difference. I'm the type of driver that likes to push it in clover leaf turns. I was grinning from ear to ear. Its now 2 months that I have had them and I am totally satisfied with these tires and I would not hesitate to recommend them

Bought a set for my all-purpose driver, primarily due to pricing. I use Michelin PSS and Bridgestone S04 on my other cars (AMG C63 and BMW M3 respectively), and comparatively, the Indy 500's have excellent grip and behaviour; very progressive and excellent communication at the limit. Wet performance is excellent. Noise and harshness (impact on road imperfections) is higher than others, but not enough to offset the pricing. This car is hard on tires, due to it being front drive and a high-boost engine tune, so tread life is important. After about 4000 km, no noticeable wear to date.
