  • Overall - The Firestone WINTERHAWK 4 provides satisfactory steering feedback on dry roads and remains stable at the limit, earning a good overall rating for dry conditions due to its good braking performance. On wet roads, the tyre performs well in braking and handling, with very good ratings in longitudinal aquaplaning and above-average results in lateral aquaplaning. On winter roads, it scores well for braking and handling but falls short in traction and ice braking, receiving only a satisfactory rating for these criteria. Environmentally, the tyre misses a good rating due to its below-average projected lifespan and satisfactory wear. However, it scores well in fuel efficiency and weight.

    Given 92% while driving a BMW 118d (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 1,800 average miles
    I bought 4 brand new tyres in November 2020 and this review is after 3000km. I'm pretty happy with them. The price was pretty good in comparison with Bridgestone and Michelin. Although I try to skip as much icy roads as possible, in rain or snow they perform well. I tried them even in a snowy mountain and everything was alright. Braking path is fairly short no matter the weather. No road noises, good responsiveness and they feel pretty reliable. For a budget tyre, this is a really good value for money.
