Firestone unveils new van tyre

Firestone has unveiled a new van tyre that gives outstanding fuel economy and wet grip, with the durability to stand up to intensive daily use.

The new -generation Vanhawk 2 builds on the renowned durability and wear life of Vanhawk, but significantly improved wet weather handling and fuel economy.

Here’s what Firestone engineers have done to raise the performance of Vanhawk 2:
Upgraded the pattern design to achieve EU label B grade (A highest, G lowest) in wet grip.2 Most other light commercial vehicles’ tyres don’t even get close to this level of wet weather control.

Tuned the tread and compound to provide excellent tyre rolling resistance (EU label C for the full line-up) to help decrease fuel consumption and reduce carbon emissions.
