  • Anyone running Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires?

    I'm curious if anyone is running these tires on their car and what their experience with hem has been?

    Looking at them for auto-x / lapping day use.

    I've lapped a bit on them in a late model Mustang and also an old Fox version, they stand up well. Not going to have the outright speed of the extreme performance tires, but for the money IMO these are very good value considering their grip level dry and wet. In other markets they are sold as a Bridgestone RE003.

      Hi

      I'm new to OTA but I ran these tires on my Fiat 500 for the HPDE and Event 1 @ TMP. The tires survived, screamed for mercy at every corner and did OK. I lost about 1mm on the outside edge at each session.

      They will do the job but to be competitive you will need a more aggressive tire.
