BUILT TO PERFORM LONGER
- Best in class wet grip
- Achieving the top “A” EU-label grade for wet grip
- Best in class dry braking
- Up to 3 meter shorter braking distance vs. its main competitors ¹
- Built to perform longer
- Independently tested by TÜV SÜD, Roadhawk outperforms its competitors in the wet at 20,000 km ²
- With up to 20% better wear performance
Performance decays over life – from agility to outright ability. The Firestone Roadhawk tyre retains its performance characteristics in road conditions where wet weather, heavy traffic, sudden braking and motorway speed are all part of the daily mix. That means you can be sure that your tyre will provide the performance you rely on for its whole life.
Firestone Roadhawk has received the coveted Certification Mark from TÜV SÜD, the largest independent institute for tyre and wheel technology in Europe.
EUROPEAN TYRE LABEL
As of 1 November 2012, all passenger tyres sold in the European Union must be labelled with an official EU tyre label.
The European Tyre Label is a good indicator of basic tyre performance.
From A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)
Rolling resistance is one factor of your tyres that can affect your fuel consumption. The lower the rolling resistance, the less fuel is required to move your vehicle forward and the less carbon emissions are generated. The difference in fuel consumption between A and G-rated tyres could be as much as 7.5%*. For an average passenger vehicle, that is around 0.65L per 100km.
From A (best) to G (worst)
Braking response is one important element of your tyre's performance in the wet and is essential for your safety. The difference in braking distance between A and G-rated tyres could be as much as 30%*. For a passenger car travelling at 80kph, for example, that can mean up to 18m in the case of full braking in wet-weather conditions.
3 ratings from 1 (quietest) to 3 (least quiet)
Exterior tyre noise is measured in decibels (dB) and compared with the new European tyre exterior noise levels to be introduced in 2016.
1 black sound wave = 3dB less than the future tighter European limit.
2 black sound waves = already compliant with the future European limit.
3 black sound waves = compliant with the current European limit.
