Initial Review, 46000 Miles on Tires
November 30, 2011

Installed factory size 225/60/16 on 03' Crown Vic. Currently have 46,000 miles on tires, rotating them religiously every 5-6000 miles. I run these all year in PA on highway and driveways/lanes that are dirt/stone/mud, very good traction, never had an issue. Even though they are a directional tire which means you can only rotate them from front to back, the tread wear from this tire is fantastic. The softer compound inherent to a snow tire usually means less miles, however they have been on my car for the last 14 months and they still have about 1/3 tread on them. I will be replacing them next month (dealer wants to buy them as a trade for four new of the same). Good deal...Sell 4 used but still very useable tires for $100.00 and for another $260.00 have 4 brand news snows. Noise level is a little higher, but I expected this due to the open lug and aggressive pattern. If you are thinking of trying this tire, I would recommend 100%

C6 Corvette Tires and Wheels (Part 1: Tires)

Friday, May 7, 2010 by Brandon Lorenc
I was talking to one of my Corvette customers the other day and he told me that in his Corvette club most members buy their Corvette Rims and New Automobile Tires from Tire Rack. By far the most popular tires I sell for this car personally are the Firestone Auto Tires, we are also one of the largest Goodyear Tire Dealers and I often sell the Original Equipment Goodyears for this car as well. But for people who don't want the O.E. Corvette Goodyear tires the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Run Flat tires are the most popular. People tend to like them because they are very high performance tires comparable to the Goodyears and usually less expensive.

Check back next week for my post on Corvette Rims to go with these tires!

We rolled out some new Firestone tires!

As your Firestone tire dealers, we're constantly on the lookout for new and improved tires from this brand we've come to trust. And so, we'd like to introduce you to the following:

Destination ST (Street/Sport Truck All-Season): If a performance pickup, crossover or sport utility vehicle is your ride, you just might appreciate these Firestone SUV tires. Year-round traction comes from a tread pattern that gives off a bold appearance.

Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 (Ultra High Performance Summer): Feel like a champion when you ride on these tires! Superb performance is backed by the heritage, the manufacturing and the winning spirit that Firestone tires have been providing since their first victory lap at the Greatest Spectacle in Racing in 1911.

Precision Sport (High Performance All-Season): Treadwear. Handling. Traction. All three combine to create a tire suitable for all of the seasons, whether the roads are wet, dry or covered in light snow.

Search for these and other Firestone tires to find a set that's ideal for your wheels.

We think your Lincoln would like these Firestone Firehawk tires.

Luxury defines the Lincoln MKS. This classy sedan exudes a great sense of style, it drives well and gives each passenger a comfortable ride —and with the right kind of tires, all that gets even better.

The Tire Rack inventory of suitable Lincoln tires is quite extensive, but we study the field to make sure we can help you narrow it down quickly and efficiently.

Let's start with a set of Firestone Firehawk tires. As your Firestone tire dealers, we feel comfortable recommending the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval tires. From a previous customer:

"Absolutely excellent tires. The Wide Ovals completely surprised me by eliminating the vibration I had always had between 60-70mph. They are also my first experience with any Firestone tires. They look excellent, grip better than I expected and are just all around top notch tires. Its not often I find a tire I like and I intend to stick with these for as long as they make them." — Tire Rack Consumer Review, Pontiac Trans Am, FL

Firestone Truck Tires Get "Big" Representation

Tuesday, January 19, 2010 by Tire Rack Team
Every Firestone truck tire is backed by over 100 years of industry research and manufacturing excellence. And since 1970, they've been backed by a monster as well. Yes, a monster. And today, Bridgestone Firestone announces a development in that monster/tire relationship.

Of course, the monster we speak of is none other than Bigfoot, the world's first monster truck. It doesn't fit just any old Firestone truck tire, but Bigfoot does use special edition Firestone tires. And has been since 1991. Though that won't be changing anytime soon, Bigfoot did just get a face-lift. According to Bridgestone Firestone, Bigfoot is now "emblazoned with the iconic Firestone shield in a dramatic new paint scheme designed to evoke the pride and tradition of the Firestone brand."

So keep your eyes peeled for Bigfoot—it likes to show up at Firestone tire dealers every so often.
