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.

Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO is very aquaplaning and side-slip resistant. Good handling in the snow-mud because of the parrallel grooves. The grip properties got worsen on snow when moving-off, braking. When driving my car I feel that the tyres behave stably and it handles the driving track. In general I have to say that Firestone Winterhawk 1 EVO were much better than Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO and they can compete even with the Ultra Grips or Alpins. My car was sticked to the road like glued and there was no snow from which I could not dig out on Winterhawk 1. Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO seem to be a bit worse than the previous ones. They manage to correct few drwaback from the model below but they forgot about snow-drive properties.
I made just one season 2010/2011 on Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO. In general the tyre is ok if taking the price under consideration. However, they have a bit problems with moving-off on snow. When I was driving back from my footbal training with my 3 friends we had a lot of problems to drive up-hill. I had problems with moving-off from traffic lights on Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO as well. I drive about 10k / year. Besides, Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO did not disappoint me in any other way. Now I bought myself a new car and I will put Uniroyal MS+66.
Imo Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO is a brilliant tyre for calm drivers. Very awesome handling on dry and wet road surface. I hadn't the opportunity to test them in snow, but I had the previous generation of Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO and they were just splendid. My car sticked to the road and remained stably. It is obvious that Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO are not rally tyres but you'll reach the destination point safely. Imo it is one of the most beneficial winter tyres. I recommend Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO.
I decided to buy Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO because I couldn't find Nokian W+ anywhere. I have to say that Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO are very silent (low rolling resistance), driving on dry road surface without problems as well, behave very stably. Now some disadvantages of Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO: a bit of ice on the road they lose grip immediately when braking and moving off. In general I can recommend Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO as a tyre which is much better than Debica Frigo that I had before.
Buying novielties is always risky. When chosing Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO I was influenced by positive reviews about the Firestone tyres. What I can say about Firestone Winterhawk 2 EVO: after-snow mud- brilliant. snow - brilliant. Ice - stably handling. Wet/Dry road surface- no excuses. Very low rolling resistance. No problems with moving off in winter conditions. Braking ok (my abs turned on just once). I cannot say anything about the attriction as I made not a huge mileage for now.
