Firestone introduces Vanhawk 2

Firestone has launched its new Vanhawk 2 van tyre, which offers the durability and wear life of the original Vanhawk product but with significantly improved wet weather handling and fuel economy.

The tyre range is designed to withstand intensive commercial use.

Engineers have upgraded the pattern design to achieve EU label B grade in wet grip whilst also tuning the tread and compound to provide excellent rolling resistance (EU label C for the full line-up) to help decrease fuel consumption and reduce carbon emissions.

Meanwhile Firestone has retained the robust Vanhawk construction and long wear life, meaning that the tyre can stand the test of intensive commercial use.

Jake Rønsholt, Bridgestone Europe’s consumer managing director, said: “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.

Vanhawk 2 is on sale from tyre dealers across Europe in 20 popular sizes and will be available in two additional sizes in the second half of the year.
