Initial Review, 20,000 Miles on Tires
April 20, 2014

I purchased these tires used from a friend who is a very reputable auto mechanic. I didn't know whether they would be very good to run in the winter as the tread was down to only about 25%. However after going through one of the worst winters here in Wisconsin. I was very surprised how well they performed. I would have preferred more tread but they pulled me through all the deep snow and ice covered roads with no problem at all. I am running into a bit of a problem when running in rutted roads during a rain storm. They want to hydroplane some but there almost down to the wear bars so I mostly attribute it to that. I would certainly highly recommend buying a set of these tires. I suspect I should be able to run them a while longer however am looking at buying a new set. The price for a new set really is fairly affordable compared to other tire brands. Before this set I ran a set of Uniroyal Laredo tires which didn't even make it past 35,000 before they needed to be replaced. With the Bf Goodrich tires I haven't run into any problems with irregular wear due to alignment issues which I struggled with on my last set. Overall I am pleased to say that by picking this tire you will make a good choice for your hard earned dollar. For a more aggressive tire you will be pleased with how quiet they are while running down the road.

It's true that these tires can suffer from being out of round. When I first had these mounted and balanced, I got the dreaded hobble. BUT I took them back to my installer and they road forced them, dismounted them, turned them on the wheel, rebalanced them, and they're about as perfect as you can get now. I saw the numbers on the balancer myself because my local shop lets me stand there and watch and talk to them since I've been going there for years as has my entire family.

As long as they hold up I'll be tickled pink. My huge SUV now knows what a straight line is, corners well, grips well, and can almost be driven like a car. These tires are also very quiet, especially for being in the Low Rolling Resistance category. I also picked up a couple highway MPGs over my old All-Terrains, which are still in the shed for winter and fun.

I wanted to get all-terrain tires before winter as the mud terrains I usually drive on were worn and not very good on snow covered roads, not to mention roads that are just damp. The Generals are fantastic! The ride is comfortable, quiet and the steering is accurate and "grippy". They can be trusted on wet roads as well, no drift or hydroplaning. I spent the winter in deep snow and "plowed" roads and these tires never lost grip. I think I have about 3000 miles on them with no noticeable wear. Looking forward to using these tires off-road and I will definitely buy these tires again.

Initial Review, 8,000 Miles on Tires
March 13, 2014

Just moved to Michigan this year from the south... Surprise! Worst winter in 20+ years. I bought these tires as a possible alternative to dedicated winter tires due to the high mileage my car sees. A lot of other reviewers were claiming 70,000+ miles and that sounded great with a tire that could handle winter weather. (they have the mountain/snowflake on the side) I braced myself for a noisy, bumpy ride as the car came with a Michelin touring tire originally. I can honestly say, these tires are quieter and ride almost as smoothly as the Michelin's. That said, the Michelin's were worn when I replaced them so I don't hold the noise against them. These tires have never left me stuck or stranded and I didn't usually spin or slide unless I was trying to. A few times I had to disable the traction control to let them spin and clear. This was only in slow speed situations like cutting fresh tracks in 8+ inches of heavy wet snow. Not sure you can ask anymore for a longer treadlife all-terrain in my opinion. My biggest complaint in the 8,000+ miles I have had them comes from the fact that they tend to "catch" grooves or seams in the highway which can be unnerving when the road is icy. I noticed it the first day I had the tires and now I have gotten more used to it and it is less of an issue but at first it did get my attention. Overall, I would and already have recommend these tires. Not the best winter solution, not the best off-road solution, definitely not the best for mpg's or handling performance. Just a really good mix of life, traction, and so far low noise.

I plow snow with these tires. Wow is all I can stay from the looks to the performance across the board. 2013-2014 was a bad winter in the northeast, these tires pushed a lot of snow. I have hit Metor size pot holes with these tires and not one bubble. Amazing treadwear for miles on them. I would say atleast 50% or more left. Highly recommended from me.

Bought these for my wife's 2013 Explorer Limited. I had to drop down to the base 17" wheel size due to the lack of available snow tires in her 20" wheel size. I've used BF Goodrich on most of my 4x4 trucks and these are certainly the best road tire I've used! I live overseas where marble is used as an aggregate for the roads and these grip the road like no other tire I've used. It handles snow and ice with ease and even grips well in the mud.

The only down side is the road noise. It's not bad at all but you will hear them. After 2500 miles on them it hasn't changed much. Good trade in my opinion for a tire that you can feel confident driving on in bad weather.

I have a 2011 F-150 supercab 4x4 with the 5.0, i have the 275-55-20's. I got over 66,000 miles on these tires. They were awesome until about 45,000 miles then seemed to lose their traction in the rain. they are very quiet and resist punctures. I had them rotated every 5000 miles with my oil changes by the ford dealer. They are way better then the good years which are so loud they will give you a headache. they have outlasted any other tire i have ever owned. They are better then any other tire on dry pavement, but the BF Goodrich all terrain t/a's are much better in the sand and mud if you can take the noise. The only down fall is the price.

I drive a 97 Grand Cherokee ZJ with 4" of lift and installed these tires in a 31x10.50x15 size. They've exceeded my expectations in every respect. They're quite for an aggressive tread pattern on the highway, handle well for the tread pattern in highway driving, and perform excellently off road. I primarily use my Jeep for off road use but it does drive upwards of 200 highway miles one way to different parks. I've also used it to travel to work when the weather is too bad to travel in my other vehicle. They handle very well in the snow, packed or deep, and even do well on ice. For a tire that's not a mud terrain tire, they do surprisingly well in the mud but I wouldn't say it's a replacement for a traditional mud terrain. I haven't had them in sand so I cannot comment on their sand capabilities. I only have about 5k miles on them so far but they seem to be wearing well and evenly, if they're even wearing at all yet. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a good all around tire for a vehicle that sees a multitude of uses. I'll most definitely be purchasing another set when the time comes.

I've put over 65000 miles on these tires in all kinds of driving conditions. The only time I've had some concern with these tires is when I'm on ice or deep mud. But this is an All-Terrain tire meaning it's good in all conditions (if you want a tire that specialized in going through mud, get a mud tire! Same goes for driving in winter/ice). I rotate my tires every 5000 miles and after putting 65000 miles on the guy at my tire shop told me I could probably put another 10K-15K on them. As far as reliability goes. I've never had a flat. On numerous occasions when I've brought my truck in for rotations the service people have pulled out nails or bolts from my tires (they're usually stuck in the tread).. again, I've never had a flat tire! These tires are a little more $$$ and they will cut your mpg's down compared to a regular all season or typical OE radial, but this tire CAN do it all and it WILL last!

I can drive through light/ moderate snow and on ice easily better than I can in my truck with all terrain tires on. My wife has loved them and has found herself asking what everyone elses problem is trying to drive in the snow. I will recomend these to anyone and everyone.

I really liked the drive smooth and nice ride had to drive when it was snowing for two hours and it did not slip a bit averaging around 50 miles an hour on about 1 to 2 inches of snow been driving in the northeast snow so far happy, only thing i noticed was a slight drop in mileage since I fitted this from my Michelin Cross terrain.

This is a really great tire. So good, i just bought a new truck, and immediately had its stock tires swapped out for these Destination A/Ts. I had 37,000 miles on them when I sold the truck, and they still had between 8/32" and 9/32" tread left. That's more than 50%! They would have easily lasted past 55k before i would have wanted to take them off. When they were new, they were excellent in the snow- recent snowfalls I can tell they're slipping a little, but still get the job done safetly. But hey, 37k on them, it's expected. I did a lot of highway driving with these tires, and they are smooth and quite. They did not affect my gas mileage, as some people have claimed. I drive in the sand a lot in the summer, and I've never gotten stuck once, even on a sandy uphill slope, from a dead stop, they pull you forward. I've owned a lot of mud tires in the past, including the Destination M/T. These A/Ts perform surprisingly well in all condition. They're no M/T, but they're pretty close. I recently considered going to the BF Goodrich all-terrain KOs, just to switch it up. I knew what to expect because I've owned them in the past, but I honestly believe that the Destination A/T is an equally effective tire in most normal conditions. I just couldnt bring myself to spend $80 more per tire for the BFs. The value for the Firestone is the best, in my opinion vs virtually every comparable tire out there. $145/ tire is great!!! I'm a tire fanatic, this is my second set of destination A/Ts and my 4th set of firestones. Highly recommended.

I have owned 2 trucks with this tire, both came as standard equipment. The only time this tire grips well is in the rain. Never had hydro planing, never had the rear tires break loose (have a posi rear end). This is all I can say that's good.

I have had highway radial tires bite into snow better than this tire. The tread refuses to clean out snow, and turns into a big snowball. And mud? Seriously? Same thing. Might as well have completely bald tires. Traction on dry pavement is surprisingly poor. Even with moderate throttle, the Hemi engine will make them both squeal and complain (remember I said both trucks had a limited slip rear end). To call these tires all terrain is a joke. I will say I have never had balance problems or failures of any kind. They are good in the rain, period.

I have driven w/ them in all weather extremes, from 115+ degree Mojave desert rock and sand to deep snow and ice in Ohio. When you need a tough tire this is it, BUT it feels like a tough tire on the road with rough ride, noise, and they've been difficult to balance.

1000 miles on these so far, have tried in a light snow and they performed very well. I replaced Cross Terrains that were worn down and hard by 45,000 miles. These tires are quieter and more far responsive in the wet than the Michelins, but they do transfer road irregularities a bit more than the Cross Terrains. Another Escape review mentioned this - perhaps it is due to a new tire vs a worn out one. It isn't horrible by any means but the road thumps and bumps are more pronounced. However, for almost half the price, they seem like a good match for the Escape.
