Racing heritage. Retro look. Updated with UNI-T technology. Today's Firehawk Wide Oval is a lot more tire than it once was. Now, performance is ultra high. Turns are tight. Handling is precise. Traction is exceptional in both wet and dry conditions. The Wide Oval has been inspired by the track. This time, it's ready to rule the road.

Very good tire on warm dry days but the tires are prone to loosing traction on wet roads. This seems to be true for both hot and cool days. My first set of firestone tires. They wear rather quickly when compared to the Bridgestones that I ran on my 400whp 335i coupe.

Do not use these tires if you are going to drive in the snow, never drove on a tire that spins on acceleration and skids on stops the way these do. Its a shame we can't drive this car in the winter. I will be looking for a new set of tires before next winter!
