Firestone - summer tyres 2024 - market overview, tests, reviews

Compare Firestone summer tyres made in your size:


We have selected a few Firestone summer tyres based on recent test results to provide you with detailed information and reviews. Among the tested tyres, we have chosen Firestone Firehawk Sport, Firestone Destination HP, and Firestone Roadhawk as the prominent tyres to be considered.


Firestone Firehawk Sport is a summer tyre that has received excellent ratings in multiple tests. In a 2023 SportAuto test with a 225/40 R18 tyre, it was rated "very good" and was praised for its excellent wet braking, precise handling, and reliable wet grip. It also featured good stability, manageable dry driving properties, and had the lowest rolling resistance. However, some deficits were noted in cornering during aquaplaning. Another 2023 Autobild test using a 225/40 R18 tyre size reported satisfying results, with positive attributes including agile handling on dry surfaces, short braking distances, and a remarkably low rolling resistance. Nevertheless, the tyre faced average aquaplaning characteristics and a slightly delayed steering response on wet surfaces.


Firestone Destination HP is a summer tyre that has been proven through multiple tests. In a 2017 test by ADAC with a 215/65 R16 SUV tyre size, it received a "good" rating, proving to be a suitable option when considering Firestone summer tyres.


Firestone Roadhawk, on the other hand, has faced mixed reviews across various tests. In a 2023 ADAC test with a 205/55 R16 tyre, it was rated "commendable" and praised for its performance on dry surfaces, efficiency, low weight, and minimal wear. However, the tyre displayed a lack of balance and weaknesses on wet surfaces. In a separate 2023 Autobild test with a 225/45 R18 tyre size, the tyre faced criticism for its wet handling but remained a consideration for some due to its dry surface performance. In a 2022 ADAC test with 215/60 R16 and 185/65 R15 tyre sizes, the Firestone Roadhawk received a "satisfactory" rating due to its strengths on dry surfaces but was criticized for its wet handling performance and being the loudest tyre in the test.


In summary, when choosing Firestone summer tyres, the Firestone Firehawk Sport and Firestone Destination HP should be considered for their commendable performance in multiple tests. While Firestone Roadhawk has some shortcomings, it may still be a viable option for those who prioritize dry surface performance.
