The Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT tire is a runflat, or extended mobility tire, with the highest level of dry and wet sport handling characteristics. Runflat tires are typically a stiffer ride than conventional tires, but the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT has O-bead technology to help minimize the amount of overlapping joints in the cap of the tire. Less overlap means a smoother ride, which helps compensate for the stiffer sidewall of the runflat construction.
This is an ultra-high performance summer tire with excellent wet and dry road grip. The tread rubber has Firestone Tires' patented Long Link Carbon rubber formula that makes this tire last longer, without compromising tread-life. The tread pattern itself features massive square profile shoulder blocks which give awesome traction levels during cornering, with a progressive breakaway so the tire is more predictable and easier to drive at the limit. All these features contribute to creating a well-rounded and high performance summer tire like no other.
