Features:

The Firestone Vanhawk tyres from Firestone tyres are tough and durable van tyres known for their reliability and affordability, precisely the parameters you look for in a business partner. If you run a mobile business, that requires constant up and down travel in your van, frequent breakdowns due to tyre issues not only mean extra expenditure, but also loss of business.

The Firestone Vanhawk tyres are tough and durable and offer the best handling and traction on all surfaces and in all kinds of weather. Thus the tyres are a reliable and helpful business partner. Like the Firestone Vanhawk tyres are all round, all weather performers for vans, the Firestone Multihawk tyres are all round performers for passenger cars. Firestone Tyres , an original American brand is more than 100 years old now. Since 1998, Firestone Tyres has been part of Japanese tyres major Bridgestone Tyres.

Enhanced Safety on Wet Surfaces: The design parameters of the Firestone Vanhawk tyres aim to offer maximum safety on wet surface. The tread pattern of the tyres has 3 wide and straight circumferential grooves, which effectively deflect water from the under tread area, reducing the risk of hydroplaning. Hence loss of control on wet surface is greatly reduced. The presence of lateral sipes in the central tread further contributes to greater reliability on wet surface.
Extended Tyre Life: The tread design of the Firestone Vanhawk tyres has several features that contribute to extending the tyre life by reducing the tread wear. The presence of continuous ribs, evens out the tread wear and prevents the ‘heel and toe’ wear effect seen in some of the other tyres in the category. Also the circumferential grooves have a wide groove-wall angle. This discourages damaging stone retention in the tread. Thus durability of the tyres is high and they last you for quite some time before you need to even think of replacing them.
Improved Handling Characteristics: The outer shoulder of the Firestone Vanhawk tyres exhibit wide and compact tread blocks, which improve the handling characteristics. This confers steering precision and cornering stability on dry roads.
Quiet Comfortable Performance: The tread design of the Firestone Vanhawk tyres is optimised to provide a quiet and comfortable driving experience.
