Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 17,000 miles on tires
April 17, 2014

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 not even a squeal. They are very aggressive at grabbing the road. When you drive in the rain they put a mist shower behind you. For the money these tires are great if you want a high performance tire. They feel like a cheaper version of the Bridgestone Potenza to me which I had on my Accord. I couldn't be more pleased with these tires. the only complaint is they seem to wear down a little quick but that is expected with this type of tire. Generally only get 30-40 thousand miles from an aggressive tire like this. So in conclusion if you are an easy Sunday driver then look at another tire you wont be happy with this one. If you like to drive and play on the curvy roads and are looking for good value for your dollar buy these Firehawks.
