Firestone Firehawk GT
Initial Review: 50,000 miles on tires
April 12, 2012

This tire was recommended by the salesman at the store I purchased them from. He really made them sound awesome. The tire was not a good choice for my vehicle, but was a good sale commission for him. Over the life of these tires, first thing I noticed was a drastic drop in fuel efficiency. Second thing was noise. Third was how quickly the tread lost depth. For my car, the tires were so loud, that after a qualified mechanic has replaced a wheel bearing, the test drove the car, then checked all the other wheel bearings. The noise of the tires was much like the noise of a bad wheel bearing. I didn't want to be disappointed, however I was. I have replaced them with the Yokohama AVID ENVigor. Where have they been all my life!!
