Firestone Winterhawk 3
TAKE CONTROl OF WINTER
Conquer winter with the new and improved Winterhawk 3 winter tyre from Firestone. Incorporating the latest lamellen technology, the Winterhawk 3 delivers vast improvements in performance, safety and durability. So you can relax and enjoy the best of winter.
Safer, steadier performance through rain and slush*
Reliable grip on everything from loose snowto icy surfaces
Vastly improved* wear resistance
* Compared to Firestone Winterhawk 2 Evo and Winterhawk 2v Evo
IMPROVED WINTER TRACTION
Excellent winter traction is a combination of 3 elements: edge effect, surface friction and snow shear force. The Firestone Winterhawk 3 masters them all for excellent grip, handling and response on icy and snow-covered roads.
The Winterhawk’s multiple lamellen technology ensures it really bites into the ice/snow.
Maximum biting edge effect
Optimum traction and braking performance on snow covered and icy roads.
The latest silica-reinforced compounds maintain superlative grip and surface contact over a wider range of temperatures.
Even distribution of silica particles
Flexible, low-temperature compound
3.SNOW SHEAR FORCE
Maintain maximum traction, even on loose snow. The Winterhawk 3 has a higher number* of blocks to increase lug volume. This increase improves grab and release of snow.
Optimized* block density
High lug volume
Increased void ratio*
ENHANCED WET PERFORMANCE
Power through rain and slush thanks to the Winterhawk 3’s advanced tread design. High-volume lugs and a constant tread depth from shoulder to shoulder help channel water, mud and slush away from central tread area to maximise your grip and minimise the risk of aquaplaning.
CONSTANT TREAD DEPTH
WIDE, STAGGERED GROOVES
* 10% higher resistance to aquaplaning
LONGER TYRE LIFE
Firestone’s Dynamic Footprint Analysis monitors every block slip to balance the tyre’s block and groove distribution. The net result is optimum stiffness, maximum wear resistance and constant winter grip for up to 3 - 4 winter seasons.
Stiffness optimisation technology
Sipe retention design
* 30% increase in wear resistance
