    Tire in Exhibit 3 in my opinion is worse than the previous generation 2. In fact, the good performance of the previous generation led me to this choice, but soon I realized that it's not. The primary endpoint for me to evaluate is the ability to move out wet or snowy roads, the previous generation is no difference compared to summer. The behavior of the car was so different, after a month of use, I went to the ASO to check the drive AWD, if it works properly. Similarly, a difference in the corners. I decided to hold until the end of the season, in the case of future use of the car for the season 2016/2017 purchase more and they sell. At the end I mention that the generation using 2 to 3 seasons and transported the 60

    It really is a good tyre. In this price I was looking for some Dunlops but I have found these new tyres from Firestone at the last moment before the purchase. I admit that in this year the winter was not hard but they have nevertheless proved themselves during the whole winter season. Very good grip on both dry and wet surface. The ESP system had to activate sporadically. I do not know how would it be in a heavier vehicle but I can recommend these tyres to be used in compact cars. I have already tested the Michelin Alpin and now, in my second car, I have the Goodyear tyres so I have a possibility to compare them in terms of various features. Good tyres that I would like to highly recommend.

    I am not a slow driver. I am driving rather fast, especially outside the city and I have to admit that these tyres gave me a possibility to develop a quite high speed (70-100 mph) on the unploughed roads! My car is sticked to the road and I have never had any problems with an aquaplaning. I have not exchanged these winter tyres for summer ones yet because they are pretty good in summer conditions as well, especially in corners. The tyres provide safe driving in all weather conditions, good traction and low rolling resistance.

    The tyres are remarkably quiet. I have not noticed any difference between my summer tyres and these winter ones. My previous winter tyres (Pirelli SottoZero II) have been decidedly louder. It is a ture pleasure to drive on these tyres both on wet and dry surface. I am positively suprised with their quality. These are one of the best winter tyres I have ever had (and I used to buy only premium brand tyres). What is more, the tyres look really good. I strongly recommend.

    I have purchased these tyres taking into consideration the reviews of the previous model - WinterHawk 2, which in several tests conducted by drivers had very high ratings. That is why I have chosen Firestone WinterHawk 3 tyres. I do not regret my decision because my car drives like it was sticked to the road. The driving is comfortable and the tyres are great in snow (it was hard to test them precisely since the winter was very mild this year). I do recommend!

Product description

Firestone Winterhawk 3 225/45 R17 94 V XL FR

The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Technical description: The Firestone Winterhawk 3 is well-regarded among drivers, and can also boast outstanding results in prestigious tyre tests. The model was designed to provide improved traction in winter conditions and longer mileages compared to the previous generation of tyres and competitor products. The directional tread pattern means that the goal of improved traction on wet roads has been achieved. In addition to the directional design, the dense network of blades and friction forces between the tyre and the road also play a key role in this respect. They ensure that the tyre can get a good hold on snow and ice, thus ensuring outstanding grip in typical winter conditions. The wide grooves of the Firestone Winterhawk 3 ensure the extremely rapid evacuation of water and slush. The even distribution of blocks and grooves over the tyre tread ensures optimum flexibility throughout the service life of the tyre, making it possible to achieve incredible mileages.  

Information about the manufacturer: Firestone was established in 1900, making it one of the pioneers in the tyre manufacturing industry. It takes its name from its founder, Harvey S. Firestone, who was responsible for advising the then owner of Ford Motor Company to use pneumatic tyres in his vehicles. In 1907, Henry Ford bought 2000 sets of tyres from Firestone for the Ford T, his latest model of car. In 1988 the company was acquired by the Japanese Bridgestone Group.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.


Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
