The newest high performance tire offerings from Firestone are being featured on Mustang360, an online news site that is affiliated with Mustang Monthly magazine. Writer Mark Houlahan attended the company's exclusive Firestone media product launch event in May, where he tested the new Firehawk A/S and Firehawk Indy 500 tires at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Houlahan had this to say about the new Firehawk Indy 500 tire: "We could instantly feel how the larger shoulder blocks found on the Indy 500 greatly improved our traction coming out of the corners… we felt confident going faster and deeper into corners with more throttle on exit."

In addition to testing the newest Firestone high performance tire offerings, both of which launched in spring 2016, Houlahan's story acknowledged the rich history of the Firestone brand, and how motorsports have long been a proving ground for Firestone tire performance and innovation.
