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.
