I slide my car around all the time and they catch traction when a want and lose it when I want. Great tire, DONT DRIVE IN WINTER. if you're looking for a tire to shred rubber off of and do it a lot. This is the tire

Doesn't Handle like my Michelin Pilot sports in the turns. Feels a little Loose in the rear end as if the sidewall isn't too strong. Took them on a Trip with some Twisty Turns in my Bmw M3 didn't handle as well as I Hoped for. Will have to order new tires asap already :(

Used them for my audi s4 as daily driver/backroad fun car. They definitely had grip in a straight line but felt soft on the sidewall when turning (compared to pilot sports previously though...). Treadwear wise, I only got 15k miles out of them with rotating every 2500 miles. Idk if i had the a little over pressured or what but thought they would have lasted longer than that. Plenty good for the price thought when i got them (170ish per tire).

Bought these tires for my 2017 fiesta st. Bought 205/50r16. These are a really great budget summer tire. Grip levels are great in the dry, pretty good in the wet too. What I was most impressed with was the comfort. These tires ride so much better than the stock bridgestones that came with my car. Overall this is really great summer tire, and you really can't beat it at this price point.

I have only put a few hundred Mike's on these tires so far. The handling is great and the noise is not bad at all compared to some other br as nds that I have used. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great summer tire and looking to also beef up the look of there car.

Great all around tires for grip and performance during the summer. I live in Florida so I can use them year round, rain performance is great, road noise is not as bad as the stock tires which I see as a plus but they are not completely quiet. I heard that the tread wear is okay for these tires but I have yet to see that myself with only 1,000 miles on them. Overall I would definitely recommend these tires to anyone with a performance vehicle.

I have a BMW 335d and my car has a ton of torque, 525wtq. These tires can put down the power and also corner very nicely. For the price I really don't know what would even compare to these. I will buy these every time I need SUMMER tires. Unsure how they would hold up on a track. I did a 1/8th mile drag @ 3 passes and they held up fine. They also hold up at almost 3 minutes doing 145mph+. I'm buying them again no doubt.

These summer tyres are impressive. I would definitely purchase these again especially for the price. You have to understand that these perform best when road conditions are dry, warm to hot and obviously not as great when the roads are wet; But that's okay because you should change your driving habit. Dry and cold conditions still have a good amount of traction. I've had them for about a year and a half. I expected to get at least a year but I may change them just shy of two years.

Get technical:

The Firehawk Indy 500 from Firestone is an ultra-high-performance tire that's designed for use on sports cars and offers drivers more control on wet roads.

Features & Benefits

  • Tread is designed for use in warmer weather
  • Black sidewall
  • Features Firestone's Pulse Groove Technology that removes water from the road for added hydroplaning resistance

Warmer weather often means its time to hit the open road for most drivers, and sports car drivers are no exception to this. While these drivers might be itching for a wide-open highway, they do need to make sure that their tires are flexible enough to perform in warmer weather while also meeting the high-performance demands of their ride. Consider the Firehawk Indy 500 from Firestone, which features a special rubber compound and tread design that helps drivers stop up to 20% shorter on wet roads. The Firehawk Indy 500 features a new tread compound and wide shoulder blocks to strengthen handling and turning performance on dry roads, and a bold design that's sure to accent many of today's top sports cars.
