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.

at first i was pretty sceptical about getting these tires but i ended up loving them! The tire i wanted to was a performance tire that i would daily most of the time, but still be able to occasionally take it to the track and autox. When i took it to the track, they actually did really well and hooked up very nicely. I would 100% recommend to somebody who daily drives their car and occasionally races as well.

Love these tires for the price. Lots of grip, corners good as I have yet to have then slip. So far 25k km and they are holding up great. I've been drag racing a few times with them and doing burnouts with no signs of wear

I replaced G Force TA tires! (good tires) So my first 500 miles I felt like I had wasted my money on these tires. I didn't like the look, thought the compound was to hard, etc...... now broke in and 5000 miles later, compound softened up, looks much better used and on the car.... I LOVE THESE THINGS. good in the rain and on summer hot blacktop, my vette will corner so hard it will honestly make your side hurt. I AM IMPRESSED, very good tire and cheap. I got a set of 4 for less than 800 bucks. What a bargain! my C-6 convertible has115,000 miles on it, I drive it like I stole it, as ALL corvette owners should do.... car shows are for girls! drive it!
