    Anybody running the Firestone Firehawk tire? I have the Firehawk "Wide Oval" tires now and need to replace them. They were good tires.
    The Firehawk Indy 500's look nice.... different from the "Wide Oval" tread. Much cheaper then most other brands too.

    Just looking for opinions based on experience.

    Thanks

    The Indy 500 is a Great Tire especially for the price!

    I have the Indy 500 on my '12 Camaro SS. Great tire for the price, much better than the P-Zeros it had on it. They handle daily driver duties well, good in the wet and cold and even autox decently.

    I ran them on my El Camino and my New Yorker Brougham. They did fine on both cars, looked good and except for ice, handled just fine. I doubr if you put them on a Camaro you'd drive them in snow and ice anyway.
