Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT
Initial Review: 50,000 miles on tires
January 14, 2012

Best overall tire for the C5 daily spirited driver. I've tried most max performance and ultra performance tires and this is the one that has performed best in terms of dry, wet, light snow performance, treadlife, noise, and cost. The RFT functionality works so well that I pushed its limit. I drove about 150 miles with a full flat going 50-70 MPH and the tire performed wonderfully. I don't have anything negative to say about this tire. You will not regret buying this tire. I have different tires on my C6 Z06 only because they don't make the wide ovals in that size.
