    Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

    Hello! Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires on their 9th gen Si?

    I'd love to try them in 225/45/17!

    Daily driving duty plus a few spirited drives a month. Let me know what you think, the price looks great!

    I have them on the HFP 18s. Not a bad tire for the price, but definitely a street/daily tire. Handles wet and dry roads well.

    I just put these on my S2000. BIG mistake! They are cheap for a reason, don't expect anything amazing. I would say the Michelin Pilot Spot A/S 3+ (ALL SEASON) can handle more corner than these... Would not recommend unless you are on a tight budget and are alright with only fine performance.

    Did you try after heat cycling them? Enough miles to get the mold release off them?

    Yupp, put about 2000 miles on them so far, still NOT impressed. The BFG Sport Comp 2 tires (7 years old) that i bought it with were better...

    Interesting comments, tirerack has them as the number 1 rated tire in the category...
    Never used them myself though

    do not know if you have your purchase, I wanted to tell you that I buy 500 indy, 225/40/18.
    I am a person who likes sudden acceleration, it is a policeman who told me that lol. In active traction mode, my two front tires its very worn (from April to October). I consider that the handling is excellent but the chewing gum is too soft.
    Personally I would look at something else .
