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.
