    I live in the mountains near. Disappointing in conditions of rain mixed with wet, in particular the phenomena of aquaplaning and skidding under conditions in which I had not with other tires. On the snow sufficiently good. Overall I would say that in the same price range there are much better alternatives, in particular the Fulda tyres with which I had no doubt the best results. Only later did i found out that there might've been some trouble with wheel alignment so the Firestone Winterhawk 3 may be quite better in the end.

    Hi, I can definitely recommend Firestone Winterhawk 3 for commuters. Driving to work every day 15 miles one way, they never failed me and were days with plenty of snow and slush. On the wet behavior was superb I'm not a speeder so not moving the way to make tyres squeal on dry. These tyres were of good price and seemed of good quality besides that brand is US one owned by Bridgestone. I certainly can recommend these tires

    I think that Firestone Winterhawk 3 is good value for money. Also confirmed that in the workshop, where I got them fitted - an i enjoy a good opinion of experts. No noise, on a wet road I had no slipping any more than dry. Recently in the snow - moving off easily even driving uphill, - great traction even on heavy snow :)

    Firestone Winterhawk 3 have rather soft sides, so there's a bit of disadvantage for example when cornering at higher speeds. If someone runs quietly and takes care of the tires avoiding curbs is certainly these tires are made for him, they have fatastic grip, but as for me, i'd need something more sportylike.

    Winter 2013/2014 in Upper Silesia is practically the late autumn, and with no snow and slush, and therefore do not take into account the evaluation at this point. Tyres very good and stable lead in all conditions. In my humble opinion - would recommend to everyone not wanting to overpay for the company name and the test set (see - affair ADAC). Wide!

Product description

Firestone Winterhawk 3 185/65 R15 88 T

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.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

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.

Noise

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.
