At Firestone we understand that as an owner or driver of a light truck, you have to be ready for all types of jobs: frequent short runs, longer hauls, stop-go deliveries and constant manoeuvring, day after day.
For this type of heavy usage you need a tyre that gives you the best possible handling and comfort on the road, with the durability to stand up to intensive daily use. That’s why Firestone has developed new-generation Vanhawk 2.
Durable and versatile
For Vanhawk 2 we have kept the renowned durability and wear life of Vanhawk – two of the reasons why van owners keep coming back to us – but significantly improved wet weather handling and fuel economy.
The result is a tough versatile light-truck tyre that gives you total confidence on the road, whatever you have to put it through.
Here’s what Firestone engineers have done to raise the performance of Vanhawk 2:
- We’ve upgraded the pattern design to achieve EU label B grade (A highest, G lowest) in wet grip, for sharper braking and safer handling in the rain. Most other light-truck tyres don’t even get close to this level of wet weather control.
- We’ve tuned the tread and compound to improve the tyre’s rolling resistance (now up to C grade). This helps improve fuel consumption and reduce carbon emissions.
- And more good news, we have retained the robust Vanhawk construction and long wear life. So Vanhawk 2 will stand the test of intensive commercial use and keep on performing day in, day out.
Van owners know that if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. With the robust and versatile new Firestone Vanhawk 2 tyre on your truck, you’re already half way there!
Firestone Vanhawk 2 will be available from reputable tyre dealers across Europe in 20 popular sizes from January 2017 and in 2 additional sizes in the second half of the year.
