Firehawk Indy 500 Has New Tread Design For Extreme Performance

May 5, 2016

The Firehawk Indy 500 tire's new tread design improves handling and braking on wet roads, according to Bridgestone Americas Inc.

The company says a new tread design featuring a proprietary Pulse Groove water channel has dramatically improved handling and braking on wet roads as compared to the Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 tire. A new outer tread design features wide shoulders that increase the tire's stiffness, allowing drivers to corner with great confidence.

The Firehawk Indy 500 is the ultimate tire in sport performance and is inspired by the Firestone brand’s racing heritage, according to Bridgestone.

Ideal for car enthusiasts looking for a tire that can provide extreme performance and extreme fun, the Firehawk Indy 500 passenger summer tire is W-speed rated.
