New Firestone Vanhawk 2

Getting the job done… even on the roughest roads

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 outstanding fuel economy and wet grip1, with the durability to stand up to intensive daily use. That’s why Firestone has developed new-generation Vanhawk 2: to help you get the job done on time and on budget. 

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.2 Most other light commercial vehicles’ tyres don’t even get close to this level of wet weather control

…We’ve tuned the tread and compound to provide excellent tyre’s rolling resistance (EU label C for the full line-up) to help decrease fuel consumption and reduce carbon emissions.3 

… 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 light truck, you’re already half way there! 

Firestone Vanhawk 2 is now available from reputable tyre dealers across Europe in 20 popular sizes and will be available in 2 additional sizes in the second half of the year.
