The Firestone Firehawk GTA-03 tire provides excellent dry traction, wet grip, responsive handling and resistance to excessive heat due to high speed driving. The tire is best suited to large rear wheel drive vehicles like the Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang. The tire works well on dry and wet roads, with immediate response to steering input which is so important during high speed maneuvers.
The tread design is heavily siped and is asymmetric for improved performance in all-weather conditions. The small blocks are staggered in size which makes for a quiet ride. Open grooves on the shoulders allow water to evacuate easily, but are still massive enough for good grip at the limits of high speed cornering. The casing has a spiral wrap around the plies that helps deflect the effects of centrifugal force, so the tire maintains it shape and a stable footprint on the road at both higher and lower speeds.
