The Firestone WINTERHAWK C is a mid-range winter tyre designed for lightweight commercial vehicles. It is manufactured using a cutting-edge rubber compound characterised by flexibility over a broad range of temperatures. This enables an increased contact area between the Firestone WINTERHAWK C and the road, which in turn improves grip and driving safety.
The model features a directional tread with properties that make it the pattern of choice for winter tyre manufacturers. The wide grooves efficiently disperse water, ensuring outstanding grip and minimising the risk of aquaplaning. The compound used to manufactured the tyre is characterised by its flexibility and light weight. This reduces the rolling resistance of the Firestone WINTERHAWK C tyre, which in turn helps to reduce fuel consumption and atmospheric CO2 emissions. The tyre is resistant to mechanical damage and rapid wear. The engineers who designed it also put a lot of work into the uniform distribution of pressure. As a result of this, the tread wears slowly and evenly and the driver benefits from the full range of performance of the Firestone WINTERHAWK C throughout its service life. A quiet drive is also ensured thanks to the optimised tread pattern and outstanding properties of the rubber compound. Any noises generated during driving are rapidly muffled, making for a quiet and pleasant journey. The Firestone WINTERHAWK C is the ideal choice for drivers who expect tyres to deliver not only balanced performance and safety on the road, but also comfortable driving and reliability, regardless of the weather.
