Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

Most people writing these reviews do not understand this tire. It is a high performance tire. That means it is not designed to be quiet, smooth, and long wearing.What it is designed for is police service. It should be run at its maximum pressure or it will wear out quickly due to its softer performance compound. Many departments run these at 41 psi...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT

I replaced the stock run flat tires on my c6 corvette. I was surprised how much better the car rode, handled etc. I have the Z51 handling package and these tire exceed the performance from the stock Goodyear's. The ride was much softer, the road noise that usually comes with Run Flat tires was gone. The wear on these tires are very little, for the price you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

These tires are wearing tremendously well. Not as quiet a former Hankook's, but the wet and dry traction has gone beyond expectation, even as tread depth has decreased. I am likely to stick with these going forward, particularly for the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Put these on in late November...did not see snow until mid January. On dry pavement they are semi loud and ride a bit rough. Cornering feels a bit squishy too.Now that snow is here everything I said semi negative goes out the window. With OEM Firehawks, I could not go 10 feet without rear end kicking out. These things are awesome...have transformed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk GT

Worst tires I have ever purchased. All I do is drive 20 minutes to work in this car and the tires wore almost bare after 12,000 miles. The road noise was so bad you can't hear the radio. Terrible.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

Great tire, did not expect this tire to last this long. Great in the Florida rain, stock Goodyear RSA very dangers in the rain on this car.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

These four new Yokohama Advan S.4 98W 225/60/16 tires are perfect in every way for both driving 55 MPH in the number two freeway lane in Los Angeles and also passing at wide open throttle at double that speed. My Lincoln Mark VIII with its tight stock air suspension and steering is now a quiet, enjoyable to steer luxury car for the first time ever. The Advan...  Read More

BFGoodrich g-Force Sport vs. g-Force Sport COMP-2

Often times when a tire manufacturer replaces a model of tire, the newer model is slightly better than the previous version. Incremental improvements over the previous generation is what we typically see. Once and awhile, a tire company will completely wow us with a dramatically better product than the one it replaces. BFGoodrich really surprised me with...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 Building a Lasting Legacy?

This past weekend the sports world saw two champions add to their legacy. The new U.S. Open champion added another major title to his resume, and the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth N.B.A. title since 1999. There’s something to be said about consistently being on top – a place that’s familiar to the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2. Since its premiere in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

The Goodyear tires my Challenger came with were loud and didn't handle particularly well. These Firestone Wide Oval Indy 500 tires are great performing tires and are reasonably priced. They look good too. I am on my second set of them. After less than a year on the Goodyears the car came with, the first set of Firestones lasted 2 years and the current set is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I hear a lot of complaints about the noise from these tires. I previously had Michelin's on the Camry. I put these Firehawks on when the Michelin's wore out. These tires are very quiet and have a comfortable ride. When you hit a corner hard they get loud almost like they are grabbing the road. I hit a 90 degree turn at 90 mph in my Camry with these tires and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

I drive mostly highway, but much of it is on twisty canyon roads. On the rare occasion there isn't much traffic I get to put some cornering load into the tires. They do great, easy to make small adjustments and I don't get surprised. Turn in is prompt. I don't notice noise or drone. They do as well as the OEM Conti Contact at half the price. Will buy two...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

When I got these tires I didn't realize they came with no treadwear warranty. I didn't expect to get very many miles out of them but I have been pleasantly surprised by them. I have just over 20,000 miles on them as of this writing. When the were new they felt a little squirrely, especially on grooved pavement but that feeling went away after about 200...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk GTA-03

At 64k, I'm still debating whether to replace the tires !!!(still a decent amount of tread). Just like any stock tire I've owned, the noise level increased as the tires aged. Most of the wet, hydro & snow issues are more due to the toy size of my HHR (which I love for roominess & mpg's)   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I bought my used 2005 Mini Cooper S Convertible in January 2014 from a local car dealership here in southwest Ohio. It came with Firestone Firehawk GTA-2 195/55R16 tires that had about 75% of the tread wear remaining. There was light snow on the ground when I drove my new purchase home. With just a couple inches of snow/ice on my driveway, I literally got...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

Best value high performance tire out there! 22K trouble free miles driving I-95 in South FL. Both wet and dry handling has been great, even in rainstorms. Road noise is no different than the Dunlop OEM's. Treadwear is what I expected for a high performance tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

Great tires, had these on my A4 with upgraded turbo and brakes. With everything working together these tires held up fine. They are still going strong. Their wear rate is unbelievable. I drove these tires year round in new england. I had a choice of buying winters or just saying screw it, so I just used these in the winters also. They were not the best in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT

I'm getting ready to order my second set of these. They're much better than the Goodyear OEM tires. They're quieter, they track rock solid (on the highway, the Goodyears required continual steering input to keep on track), very good wet/dry traction, and impressive tread wear (I'll have over 33,000 miles on them when they're replaced).   Read More
