Firestone Firehawk GT review
What is it?
The Firestone Firehawk GT is a high performance all season tire designed for coupes and sedans with moderate performance. Served as the original equipment tire for the Dodge Charger, Chevrolet Impala, and Chrysler 300.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Dry and wet traction, performance, and handling characteristics are about average for the high performance all season tire category.
Substantial user feedback suggests that the Firehawk GT is distinctly not an all season tire to be counted on in true winter conditions. Snow/Winter performance is below average for the category, as are comfort characteristics and treadlife.
How does it compare?
The Firehawk GT ranks eleventh out of sixteen high performance all season tires per user feedback.
- Treadlife Warranty: 5 years, 50,000 miles
- Uniformity Warranty: First 1/32" of wear
Anything else to know?
The Firehawk GT is a tough sell when one can acquire top tier ultra high performance all season options like the BF Goodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S and superb Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 for less money.
We suggest that you explore options and ultimately move on from the OE Firehawk GT.
