The Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO is a winter tyre designed for passenger cars. The model features a directional tread that ensures outstanding evacuation of water and slush. The tyre also provides guaranteed stability and protection against aquaplaning, making everyday driving safer.
The innovative rubber compound used to manufacture the tyres ensures outstanding flexibility, even at very low temperatures. This means that the Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO is characterised by its large contact area with the road, which results in improved grip on snow, slush and ice. The model features a directional tread with V-shaped grooves, which disperse water and slush rapidly and efficiently from under the wheels, improving driving stability and guaranteeing an accurate driving path, even during cornering and dynamic manoeuvres. The Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO is an ideal solution for drivers who demand not only maximum performance and grip on all surfaces, but also safe and comfortable driving. The engineers who designed the tyre put a great deal of work into achieving the last of these features. Thanks to the use of an enhanced rubber compound and an optimised tread pattern, the tyre guarantees a quiet drive for both driver and passengers. The Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO is designed to rapidly mute any noises generated by the tyre while driving, making for a quiet and pleasant journey.

Welcome. Wheel on dry pavement behave well. The problem starts in the snow. During the first winter tire went nicely. There was no problem with driving in the snow, uphill travel caused no problem. The situation has changed dramatically, even during the second season. It was more difficult to move the snow, let alone ice. Now, after three seasons, although 6mm tread, tires have lost a large part of the news. It is easy to break traction when starting. During the anti-lock braking system of the car still running. Guilty as it is a rubber mixture which consists tire. It is very sensitive to aging. Straddling Nokian tires, bought together Firestony, with a depth of similar sculpture and ride quality is also very different. For much better moves and stops on these tires. To summarize: The tires can and good, but only for the first winter. This is followed by a rapid loss of their winter properties.
Firestone Winterhawk EVO bought in autumn 2012 and waited with the view that przejeździć the season and see in all conditions. Tire behaved superbly on dry and wet roads, take it easy and straight as a rail, but the problem appeared in the snow, slush, ice not to mention, since no tire on the ice does not behave well. Snow and slush there is no safe braking and perhaps even moving lights is a problem. The second car, I Dębica Frigo one of the other eight years with Michelin axis and very worn tire tread and there was no problem. I chose the second time, I'm sure I would have bought a cheaper Dębica or a stimulant, because it is a winter only name Firestone tire.
ADAC tests were right - ideal for winter tires. In extreme conditions very well maintained. In dry at temperatures below 5 degrees temperatures well maintained conditions ABS rarely had to work. A problem arises when the temperature has increased by more than 8 degrees. At higher speeds (około110 km / h) and tighter curves might behave unpredictably. But the worst acted in the rain 5 °. Virtually every heavy braking finished trigger ABS-u, and braking very elongated. The turn was often feel the front wheels skid. In terms of consumption of these tires are very pleasant surprised me. Despite the high temperatures of winter wear really low.
The tires used two seasons, during which I drove about 5000 miles away. The only complaint I have about the volume - on the highway were clearly audible. Also, for that price, unless hard for a better tire. Excellent in dry conditions, but the most important in the winter season, also good work in the snow. It is true that I drive mostly in the city, but there were trips to the mountains and then also I have not been disappointed. Only once I got the right one, but it was a little too high speed turn of wine. For a new car (which is on the way) certainly still buy Firestone tires, but this time Winterhawk 3.
Encouraged by excellent summer tires of this brand, I also decided to buy winter tires. Before, I always had winter tires premium (last season Michelin). Unfortunately, during the transition to Winterhawk 2 EVO I felt like a car pationoire.La slipped even in dry conditions. ABS should work even when braking. The sitaution was even worse on wet asphalt, slush or snow sleazy - more than 50 kmh on accidents. In short, Firestone tires were at temperatures near 0 degrees behave better on dry and wet asphalt. You get used to good brand of high-end, you'll probably Deas by Firestone.
