I have been running the Firehawk 500's for almost a year now. I LOVE them!! I have the 17's but they have had great grip on all occasions, even in the 30 degree weather we have been having in Dallas recently. They also wear great!! I have put about 10k on them and still have plenty of tread left on them. Just make sure to rotate them regularly and they should last you for a while. I do not think they can be beat for the price point and wear.These are the tires I'm going to tomorrow. The Goodyear Eagles were great in the dry and wet but dry-rotted something awful with plenty of legal tread left on them.
