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.

Bought these to replace some Primacy 3's on my '18 Mustang PP1 Wheels. HORRIBLE! These things handle like snow tires, the sidewall flexes ALLOT. Anybody here saying their anywhere close to performance tires has clearly never had performance tires, or they are on a corolla....

Purchased these tires to replace a set of Coopers. Night and day better for cornering and traction. These tires are quiet, look great and worth every penny! I put a 1 for snow only because they are summer only and not rated for snow.

They hold the road much better than my last set. My car feels like an Infiniti again. Good grip and traction wet or dry. Much quieter than my previous (Pep Boys) tires. Can't answer about snow since we are in South Alabama and they are fairly new so I have had time to see how the tread holds up.
