What Are Performance Tires?
Some drivers want nothing more than practicality from their cars. They use their car to go to the office, the grocery store, and maybe a road trip every now and then.
Those drivers don’t need performance tires.
Other drivers revel in the driving experience and choose their cars accordingly. Because tires have a big impact on the car-driving experience, however, regular tires won’t do.
Such drivers need performance tires, which means the tires:
- Feature a tread pattern optimized for dry and wet traction.
- Are made of rubber compounds that can withstand the kind of wear that may occur at high speeds.
- Focus on precision and responsiveness.
Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 Tires Perform
In Dry Conditions
Inspired by the cherished Indianapolis 500, Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires are ultra-high summer performance tires. They're the tires that provide the kind of extreme performance that enthusiasts seek.
We’re talking excellent handling and impressive cornering in dry conditions. The tire's wide shoulder blocks make such maneuverability possible. They increase the tire’s stiffness for dynamic cornering and fast acceleration from a complete stop in dry conditions.
In Wet Conditions
Firestone's proprietary Pulse Groove™ technology means you won't miss out on performance when things get wet.
Pulse Groove™ improves water evacuation. That helps increase resistance to hydroplaning for better control on wet roads. Because no matter where you drive, an unexpected summer shower can strike at any time and create challenging road conditions.
The Firehawk Indy 500 is ready, though, with not only Pulse Groove™ but also an improved wet rubber compound and tread design that provides 20% shorter stopping distance on wet roads (as compared to Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 Tire).
For a sports car tire that performs as good as it looks, choose Firehawk Indy 500 tires.
