    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.

    Firestone Winterhawk 3 tyres bought after recommending by consultant from Oponeo. Does the job, provide a comfortable ride around town (driving there 90% of the time). They provide security in emergency situations. With slush, unfortunately, there have been minor slippage during braking. The snow is conducted safely and not recorded any uncertain situation. While raining, adhesion also very well developed.

    Firestone Winterhawk 3 are my first new tires. I expected more from them, I have not tested them in the snow as last year's winter was mild. On dry pavement tire behave very well, while in the wet they lose traction a bit, resulting in a quick turn on the ABS and ESP. The reason for this can also be the vehicle mass (1700kg). As for comfort I do not have any claims, we know what the new tire is new.

    Tires extremely quiet. I did not notice the difference between summer, early winter tires Pirelli Sotto Zero II were significantly louder. Very well on them rides on both dry and wet roads. I am positively surprised by the quality, so far I've used only premium tires. In addition, the tires look good. I would recommend.

    I would recommend that tires fully meet my expectations. I reach every day to work out of town but the day I move around the city. On wet and snow abs starts really late and with a very strong press brakes.

Product description

Firestone Winterhawk 3 205/55 R16 91 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.

Label

The Firestone Winterhawk 3 tyre in size 205/55 R16 91 T, according to the manufacturer's information, has the following drivability qualities:

  • E
  • C
  • 72 dB
E C 72 dB

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.
