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 CONFIDENCEThe 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 ROADSWith 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 HYDROPLANINGThe 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.

I had these Indy 500 tires for my track days on a s2000 for awhile now. They are far the best grippy tires for the price range. They share the similar design as Bridgestone RE11 which are also excellent tires for track days or autocross. I will definitely buy another set of these tires for next year's season.

Extreme (Racetrack style racing)
I got these tires when they first came out. New tread design compare to the previous Indy 500. I have these on my stock BBS forged wheels. They were excellent at the track. They grip very well under hard cornering. Tread wear lasts longer than I thought compare to Dunlop Z1. Sidewall is pretty solid and stiff. I would definitely buy another set of these after I finish the current set.

I drive daily in summer to work and weekend autocross. Dry pavement this tire is superb. Sidewall is somewhat strong and beefy.
I'm surprised by it's wet performance in rain, it grips well when you accelerate or under braking.
Since its summer tire, i will give 1 to snow.
Overall I'm very happy with my purchase for the price and performance that I get.
