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.

With OEM tires my 2016 Mazda 6 understeered when pushed a little but with stiff sidewall, these Indy 500 takes it to a whole new level. These are my first summer tires and the grip in dry is just incredible; you have to try these to believe it. Grip in wet is great too. Cannot comment in wear but I’d be happy if I get 40K. Definitely get another set when worn. Try these, you won’t be disappointed!!
