Durable tyre for frequent use
To make a lot of short and frequent trips with repeated driving manoeuvres on a daily basis, commercial vehicles need durable and versatile tyres. With this type of use in mind, the Firestone Vanhawk 2 has been designed to deliver superior performance in terms of road holding, comfort and durability.
Compared with the Vanhawk, the first in the series, it achieves better EU tyre label ratings with a B rating for wet grip, which results in shorter braking distances and safer grip in wet conditions, and a C rating for rolling resistance which improves fuel consumption.
When will it be available?
From January 2017, you will find the Firestone Vanhawk 2 in 20 different sizes on the European market. An additional two sizes will be available later in the year.
