Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval is a performance tire with a retro look. A Computer Optimized Component System is used to coordinate the various parts of the tire for maximize performance. To ensure ride comfort, an O-Bead is used that runs a continuous strand of cable in the bead construction. This is further enhanced by a design that maintains a consistent surface contact, reducing vibrations for a more comfortable ride as well as improving handling in both wet and dry conditions. High speed uniformity is maintained through the use of a Spiral Wrap of nylon. Wet traction is increased with the use of silica in the tread compound for flexibility, and Weather Grip HP Tread Compound is used to gain traction in wet conditions as well as increase durability. Long link carbon is used in the tread to help resist cracks and chips.
