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.
The design and performance of the Firestone WINTERHAWK tyre are ideally suited to the most challenging of winter conditions on the road. The tyre model is manufactured using a special silica-enhanced rubber compound. This combination ensures that the tyre maintains outstanding flexibility regardless of outdoor temperatures. The choice of material also plays a significant role in the model's outstanding grip and its long service life. The sophisticated directional tread design provides outstanding protection, in particular against hazards presented by wet and slushy surfaces. Each individual feature of this directional pattern has a carefully designed function, which it performs with resounding success. One of these features is the dense network of blades arranged over the entire surface of the tyre. This network manages to achieve outstanding protection against loss of grip on slippery surfaces, and thus ensures that the driver is able to maintain excellent control excellent control of the vehicle in conditions of this kind. The tyre behaves faultlessly when starting, braking and cornering. The manufacturer also put a great deal of thought into the steering characteristics of the Firestone Winterhawk tyre, resulting in the use of sturdy blocks in the shoulder tread and reinforcement of the tyre's entire sidewall. The wide circumferential grooves paired with transverse grooves are a further key design element of the directional tread. They ensure the rapid and efficient evacuation of water and slush by the tyre during thawing periods.
Firestone has been a stalwart of the tyre industry since 1905, when the company was founded by Harvey S. Firestone. In 1988 it was acquired by Bridgestone, one of the largest tyre manufacturers in the world. The US brand Firestone was the first mass manufacturer of tyres in the world and played a pioneering role by supplying tyres to be used as original equipment on Ford cars. Firestone-branded tyres are regarded as mid-market products.

I have these tyres on the car for a few months and I'm pleased with them. They are loud. These are the soft tyres. Badziej check on snow, ice and slush than on the wet asphalt. I recently had an emergency braking when an uncouth German drove his BMW 5 zdjeździe me the way to the sloping and curving flyovers. I have ABSu and slid a few feet in order to prevent reflections against the side. I stopped about 1 m in front of the car. But it was cold and wet from the long-lasting rain. When winter came true - the tyres are in their element! Feel that the mixture is very soft - a little car flying car for dynamic driving on hard surfaces. I wonder how the durability and abrasion ... Anyway, I do not regret that I bought Firestony Winterhawk - I had to buy Krisstal Fulda Montero II, but did not have the tyres with the speed that I was interested. I compare these tyres Barum Polaris winter tyres - are a little better, though Barumy probably better behaved on the pavement without snow and rain. Although this may be an illusion, because the last ride very fast and perform decently Firestony my command ;-) Greetings to all readers of this opinion :-)
Tyre 165/70 R13 79T was as good for 2 years from the date of purchase, but no revelations. What I did not match the tyres on this model is that the emergency brake is very easy to block the wheels on the wet asphalt in the autumn - winter! A massacre! It is difficult to detect the point at which the wheels start to lock (I do not ABSu). I was not so with the Barum Polaris I, nor the Fulda Kristal Montero II! After a third year noticeably worse cornering grip in the snow and very hard to move in kopnym snow. The first 2 seasons OK, but the third revealed a poor season rubber compound properties - Firestone tyres because the tread still has a 7 mm thick! Of course tyres "passed the" driving improvement course on Tor Missile Wroclaw in February 2010 in kopnym snow. Correct, but no revelations. It is hard to move, hard to slow down. Auto Skoda Felicia II 1.6 75HP 135Nm without ABS. BDB braking system. Tyres are unlikely to recommend. This season I bought winter tyres Vredestein Snowtrac 3, and I hope that it will be the best winter tyres that I had ;-) Be the first course in the winter ;-)
I wonder how those opinions "great revelation", etc.? Sam guided by the opinions here and expect to actually revelations, and that probably can not be seen (or maybe it's just a lack of winter? ;). I have to compare with the Toyota Yaris Pirelli and I have to admit that Pirelki were definitely better - kept the snow, ran great in the summer (yes, I rode on them at 30, because I did not want to change) and Winterhawki a little slip in the snow (no Well, it was slippery, besides Yariska have ABS, and Nubira is not). In my, subjective and unprofessional, but honest opinion, the tyre has no visible flaws, but there is also no great revelation - probably has the correct value for the money, although to be honest I rode it for year-round Kormoranach and did not notice any significant difference, but again, other auto - Matiz. Now I bought Firehawki, also guided by the opinions here. Let's see if it does not impress me, in the future I will chose only high-end equipment and stop reading reviews. Greetings to all honest assessment.
I like Jay Bee bought tyres online store following the opinions of other drivers found on www.tyres. I'm pleased. They have a good price and very good driveability. It is quieter than my summer Barumy (although they were already zajeżdżone but including the noise in the not terribly nervous). I live on the hill and in addition there is always colder than elsewhere, ie for example, everything is black and we have snow lies. August worked on dry, wet the snow and mud. Were covered hockey test - I drove a few meters up the hill and I had to change the route (but on the ice without a thorn, then every lie). Although I do not have them yet but after a stunning run of 2.5 thousand'm happy and would recommend. The look gives 6 to compensate for the overall assessment of the ice, I think frankly with this field (ice skating) is unnecessary because someone gives you a high score on the ice it or it was not on the ice or have studded tyres or chains.
