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 Firestone FW930 is a mid-market tyre. The Firestone brand has belonged to the Bridgestone Group for over 20 years. The Firestone FW930 is designed for everyday use in challenging winter conditions. The durable tread guarantees excellent steerability and grip, even on icy roads. The tread pattern also helps to reduce the risk of aquaplaning and shorten braking distances. The high level of driving comfort is a further advantage of the tyre.The Firestone FW930 is a new-generation tyre designed for driving at low temperatures and on challenging surfaces. It is manufactured using state-of-the-art materials and sophisticated UNI-T technology, which is based on an optimised profile ensuring improved distribution of forces and slower wear of the tread. The rubber compound used in the Firestone FW930 is enriched with a patented Silica component, applied as a substitute for harmful Carbon Black. The company’s engineers have minimised the amount of toxic aromatic hydrocarbons, making the tyre more environmentally friendly. The rubber is adequately flexible and resistant, and contributes to the reduction of rolling resistance, thus ensuring lower fuel consumption. The small lamellar notches in the tyre’s tread guarantee a safe drive on wet roads. The notches have a sinusoidal form that prevents the wheel from sliding during start-up and acceleration. They also shorten the braking distance, thus ensuring a high level of safety, even during fast, dynamic driving. The tread’s shoulders are stiffened to improve traction on dry roads, to ensure a more stable drive, even on rough, uneven surfaces. Their directional shape is supported by a deep longitudinal groove and the system of lateral notches that effectively distribute water and slush to the sides. The tyre reduces the risk of aquaplaning and provides traction control, even during heavy rain.
The Firestone FW930 winter tyre is designed for medium- and higher-class vehicles that can reach high speeds, and is recommended for luxurious sedans and sport cars.
