    Thanks @mazdaman007 for your feedback!

    I am now focused on the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 which is the Bridgestone Adrenalin RE003 from Japan and Australia region. This is the 3rd generation of the RE760 Sport which was called the RE001 overseas with many improvements over the older RE760. Bridgestone owns the Firestone brand. Pricing on these are fantastic as well...at least in the US. Waiting on quotes from our local sponsors.

    Reviews look great not only from TR but from other online car enthusiast forums. Sticky dry and wet traction with good daily driver manners with better comfort and noise! Being a UHP Summer tire, it won't have as high a wear rating as the Michelin A/S 3 series, but should come in much cheaper and quieter, and these tires look great!

    And thankfully the weight of these Indy 500's are 6lbs lighter (22lbs) than 205/50/17 RE760's which came in at 28lbs!

    Lovers of the RE760 Sport (such as @Kiewan) will definitely be interested in these...

    Will do. Hopefully will have them on my rims this Friday at Tires23 and possibly will swap onto the car on the weekend. Depends on long term weather outlook.

    FirehawK Indy 500 Review

    Thought I would report back after having the Indy 500's on the car for almost 3 weeks now. My car is stock 17's with 205/50/17 rubber

    • Amazing aggressive look and stance
    • Smooth riding and excellent handing for daily driving! - bumps are not harsh and noise is much less than I expected on the highway and local roads.
    • Absolutely amazing dry AND wet traction
    • Tires do not squeel even when pushed to the limit
    • Fantastic cornering capabilities even with stock swaybars and not being lowered
    • Mileage has decreased thou since I am now driving the car more aggressively most of the time now
    • Steering feel is not quite as heavy and road connected as my older michelins but response is very good
    • Highway tracking is decent although slanted lanes tend to require a bit more steering compensation (yes car was aligned at Altech right after tires installed)
    • Driving is much more fun all around now - very happy with this purchase
    • Cannot comment yet on tire longevity but time will tell - UTQG 340 A A rated
    • Amazingly low priced!


    Highly recommended for those seeking fantastic wet and dry performance at a very attractive price point.

    $50 Firestone MIR on a set of 4 Indy 500's from April 24/2017 to May 28, 2017
