Firestone Chooses a Retro Name for Their
Ultra High Performance Summer Tire

What do Ford's 2005 Mustang GT, the MINI Cooper S and Volkswagen New Beetle all have in common? They are all modern, retro versions of milestone products. And when it comes to tires, Firestone's Firehawk Wide Oval w/UNI-T is no different.

The Firehawk Wide Oval w/UNI-T is Firestone's Ultra High Performance Summer tire for today's driving enthusiasts in much the same way that the original Firestone Wide Oval, the industry’s first low profile performance tire, helped revolutionize high performance passenger tires in the late 1960s. To find out if Firestone's modern, retro tire will again advance Ultra High Performance, we compared the road manners and handling performance of the Firehawk Wide Oval with the popular AVON Tyres Tech M500 and BFGoodrich's g-Force T/A KDW tires from the Ultra High Performance Summer category.
