Firestone Firehawk Indy 500
Firestone’s participation in the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race
represents one of the longest relationships in motorsports. When you
combine the 52 Indy 500 victories earned by Firestone at the
Greatest Spectacle in Racing, you have rich tradition backed by a
history of performance. The Firehawk INDY 500 is a Performance
All-Season tire that was developed for the drivers of cars & light
trucks that want to celebrate that tradition by combining Firehawk
performance tires with the INDY 500 & “Wings & Wheel” logo of
the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The Firehawk INDY 500 with UNI-T uses Firestone’s WeatherGrip HP
Tread Compound molded into an independent block tread pattern to
enhance year-round traction. The tread pattern also uses Firestone’s
“Power V” derived technology to further enhance wet traction.
Internally, the Firehawk INDY 500 tire’s twin steel belts &
polyester cord body deliver responsive handling & cornering
stability along with a smooth ride. Additionally, a single str& of
steel that is spirally-wound is used to form beads that are rounder
for a better fit to the wheel & to further enhance handling &
The S-speed rated Firehawk INDY 500 tires feature sidewall styling
that spell out “Firehawk” & “INDY 500” in solid raised white
letters with the Firestone & Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s “Wings
& Wheel” logos in black (on the reverse side of the tire, all
elements are in black reversed out of a stylized black
circumferential band). The T-speed rated tires feature the stylized
black circumferential b& type of styling on both sidewalls.
Firehawk INDY 500 tires are available in 70-, 65-, 60- & 50-series
sizes for 13" to 15" wheel diameters.
NOTE: Tires with section widths of up to 215 mm in width (such as
P215/60R14) feature a four “rib” tread design, while tires with
section widths of 225 mm (such as P225/60R15) & wider feature a
five “rib” tread pattern.
