VR rated Firestone Firehawks were the orginal equipment on my Opel Vectra Gt 16v a German-Gm car with a high top speed , and my firehawks were gone flat many times , and finally my front left blew up so bad that it destroyed it's tirewall but it was done buy a nail on the road but the nail had gotten to tires center but it 's sidewall was torn apart which nearlly
made me to loose the control of the car on the hiway (In Turkey there 's no speed limit).

Also in wet conditions it was impossible to control my cars nose in first and second gears .
I had replaced them with Pirelli P5000 and this problem was solved .
