On comparison, both Firestone Roadhawk and Semperit Speed-Life 3 are established summer tyres but each of them has its strengths and weaknesses. The Firestone Roadhawk shines with its efficient dry and wet handling abilities but tends to struggle a bit with dry braking and wet circle cornering. On the other hand, Semperit Speed-Life 3 has excellent wet braking skills, yet it demonstrates some weaknesses on dry terrains.


According to the most recent Autobild test, the Firestone Roadhawk clinches the 10th position among 53 tested tyres, with strengths lying in dry and wet handling, and wet side guide. The Semperit Speed-Life 3 got to position 12, beating 41 other tyres mostly due to its distinguished wet braking.


As per the Autoklub čR test, Semperit Speed-Life 3 handled better with a 10th position in comparison to Firestone Roadhawk's 11th place among a total of 19 tyres tested.


Further in an ADAC test, between 17 tyres, Firestone Roadhawk was placed at the 17th spot, showcasing its prowess in dry braking and wet circle cornering. Yet, Semperit Speed-Life 3 outperformed Roadhawk positioning itself 7 positions higher being the 10th tyre on the list, scoring high on metrics like aquaplaning, mileage, and wet braking.


In sum, both tyres by Firestone and Semperit have shown great performances in various testing conditions. Still, depending on the preference between wet and dry conditions, one might be better than the other. The Firestone Roadhawk is perceived to perform better in wet terrains while Semperit Speed-Life 3 seems to be an environmentally-friendly choice with balanced performance in wet and dry conditions.
