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.
Durability, excellent driving behaviour on any surface and pleasant journeys are just some of the benefits of the Firestone Winterhawk 3. The tyre was designed for use in passenger cars. Thanks to a directional tread with a V-shaped arrangement, the model guarantees short braking distances on wet roads and a high level of driving safety.
The designers of the tyre put a great deal of thought into an optimum distribution of forces within the tyre. This means that the tread wears evenly and slowly and the full range of performance can be achieved throughout the model's service life, regardless of the figure on the milometer. Firestone Winterhawk 3 tyres ensure stable driving behaviour, with the vehicle sticking to its path and providing optimum safety during sudden manoeuvres, such as lane changes or emergency braking. The directional tread ensures outstanding evacuation of snow and slush. The V-shaped arrangement of the grooves evacuates water rapidly and effectively. The tread pattern also protects against aquaplaning and ensures that the vehicle maintains outstanding grip, regardless of the weather. The Firestone Winterhawk 3 is the ideal solution for all drivers looking for balanced performance, short braking distances and stable driving behaviour, regardless of the road surface or weather conditions.

The Firestone Winterhawk 3 tyre model is according to me pretty much simmilar to winterhawk 2. In fact, the good behavior of the previous generation prompted me to just such a choice, but pretty soon I realized that it's practically the same. The primary parameter for me to evaluate is the ability to move off on wet or snow-covered roads, the previous
generation is of no difference, compared to the summer. The behavior of the car was so much different, after a month of use I went to the MOT in order to check the drive AWD, if
it works correctly because those were starting to feel very different from their prodecessor. I decided to drive on the Firestone Winterhawk 3 until the end of the season, i'll be considering selling those and getting something new. In the end I can mention that i was using 2 generation for 3 seasons and have carried them around 40k miles.
Hello. I'm currently using the second set of the winterhawk 2 tyres. I was using the first set during 7 seasons (7 years) and they did not lose their properties to the very end so
I was very pleased with them and with their grip so I decided to buy a new Firestone Winterhawk 3. I drove on them them about 2000 miles already nand I am quite impressed as they are definitely even more quiet than the Winterhawk 2 model. I'm often travelling to mountainous areas to ski so snow is not unfamiliar to me. Very good grip on snow-covered roads.
Very good sush drainage. I am very pleased with them after the first season. I recommend Firestone Winterhawk 3 tyres for people who are looking for tyres at a decent price with excellent driving
I drove around 2000 miles with Firestone Winterhawk 3 tyres fitted on my car, of which two routes were more than 500m. They behave properly, especially in the snow. Somewhat lsignificant tread wear though, a bit larger than expected, so i can estimate that they would last for another two seasons. Average rolling resistance, which resulted in a noticeable fuel consumption on the road. Average noise level, which the road is a bit cumbersome, especially at higher speeds on dry roads. I'm not sure what the author meant by asking for an assessment of the appearance of the tyre. They look like normal tyres, round, black, with no special frills. To sum up: Firestone Winterhawk 3 are the regular tyres, you get exactly what you pay for.
I was using Firestone Winterhawk 3 tyres last winter, but it so happened that there were almost no snow in the area. During last 3 seasons I was using refurbished tyres which weren't much of a compare to these so no disappointment there. The wet grip on curves is peculiar. You can loose the grip sometimes and then immediately regain it if you do. Another good thing is that you won't really feel any road bumps and it's quiet.Unfortunately it wears quite quick but to be honest i'm not a slow driver so that was to be expected especially with my
powerful engine. Durability of the tyre i bought my wife was better (those were Nokians) although she drives less. My tyre size is 185/60/15, driving the Fiat Bravo 147bhp.
Firestone Winterhawk 3 is a really good tyre for the price. I was going to buy dunlop tyres but at the last i've found Winterhawks to be something new on the market. The fact is this year's winter was not too harsh but still they proved themselves during a trip to the mountains. Very good adhesion on dry and wet roads. ESP does not turn up too often with violent traction. I do not know how those would fare with a heavier car but for a compact 150bhp I can surely recommend. Already tested Michelin alpine, now in the second car I have goodyears and i can boldly compare those 2 brands. Good tyre! Firestone Winterhawk 3 are definately to be RECOMMENDED.
