Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought the Firestone Destination A/Ts based on their very high ratings in the Survey section at Tire Rack. In the past, I always thought Michelin made the best tires, so I was somewhat skeptical of switching to the Firestone brand. After 11 months and 19,000 miles of driving, it's clear that the Firestone Destination A/T is the best tire that has ever been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I am a bit of a tire geek and a believer that you buy a tire for a certain function. Know what you need it to do, and then decide on a tire accordingly. Do not assume that any tire with a good rating will make you happy. I have aggressive performance tires on my sports car. For the SUV, I have a set of LRR highway tires, and a set of dedicated snow tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

WOW!!! What a tire! I bought mine four years ago from TireRack already installed on steel wheels...what a great move on my part. I've driven them on my Dodge Grand Caravan (with the big motor...3.8 liters) and have lost traction while accelerating ONE TIME, and that was on glare ice. Packed snow and really cold ice are no challenge for this winter performer....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

This tire has been great on our Ford Escape. Great traction during the warmer weather with rain. It provides great traction too! I was very surprised how I aggressive I could drive and the tires would grip and the car would not slip. The tires are still newer so I can't really speak for tread wear yet. I rotate them every oil change/3000 miles so they should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Studs installed and the tires perform securely. Bought the tires for winter driving only and this is the third season and would /will buy again. I do mostly back road driving, hills and sharp corners my suv sticks securely to the road. Not worried about any noise from the tires. The studs do sound like you have stones stuck in tires on dry pavement. When I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought these tires based on tirerack reviews to replace BFG Rugged Trail T/A's which were junk at 25K miles, especially in snow. (see my review 12/6/2012) I am thrilled with these Firestones! They now have 25K miles on them and there has been very little performance decline, even in snow,(they are NOT classified as a snow tire) and we have had plenty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I purchased these tires for my '09 Venza on Black Friday this year. This is my 3rd set of tires on this car and I've never been thrilled with tires till now. I drove about 3K miles before the first snow. Now that it as snowed, I can say they are fantastic! As soon as they were installed, I felt the improved handling and grip to the road. I feel like I have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

These tires have saved my life on more than one occasion! I work PT for the USPS as a rural carrier and drive in some of the worst road conditions. Much of the route is on low-maintained country roads where snow, ice and mud are constants. This is my third year using the Winterforce tires. I used to get stuck a minimum of 3-5 times a year on the route and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I had a problem many years ago with Firestone tires and I swore I would never buy them again. Well, I did buy these snow tires a couple years ago, and I have to admit they are excellent. 400' driveway in upstate NY. Lots of snow and wind blowing drifts across it. We have been able to just churn our way through them with the all-wheel drive CRV. Excellent...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is my 5th set of these tires on three different vehicles (light to medium SUVs). I will never run anything but these tires on any truck or SUV I own. They are the best tires I have ever used which is also why they are one of the very highest rated tires on tirerack.com for highway/off road use. I put on average 50,000 miles on them before I had to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Tires installed in July 2009 and have now reached the end of their useful life here in Toronto, Ontario. I've driven over 60000km on them through all seasons (no winter tire changeover)and they have been GREAT. I have only rotated them once and they still wore very evenly. The only negative I have experienced is slippage when accelerating on wet surfaces and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I operate a farm and these tires are on my Chevy Silverado Z71, the 8th Chevy 1500 I have owned and I always drive on Firestones with my trucks as I can get 80,000 + miles on a set of tires. These tires are the best winter tires I have owned in 40 yrs of driving. We get massive amounts of snow and I am often driving up my 400ft country driveway through 2 ft...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I purchased these in 1/9/09 so these have almost 4 winters on them. I purchased them because this is the car my bride drives 15 miles to work each day. One day I pulled out of my driveway with less than 2 of snow, (using 3 month old BS Turanza Serenity A/S tires. I was shocked the car had no control when starting from a stop; directing me toward the curb. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I PURCHASED A NEW 2014 RAM 4 W.D.CREWCAB LARAMIE TRUCK. THE FIRST THING I DID WAS TO TAKE THE GOODYEAR WRANGLERS SRA HIGHWAY ALL SEASON TIRES OFF MY TRUCK AND BUY A SET OF DESTINATIONS AT'S AND INSTALLED THEM ON THE RAM. IT WAS A NO BRAINER MOVE. I HAD A SET ON MY OLD 2003 CHEVY 4 W.D. REG CAB SILVERADO TRUCK. I HAD A SNOW PLOW ON MY CHEVY AND PUSHED TONS OF...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

These four new Yokohama Advan S.4 98W 225/60/16 tires are perfect in every way for both driving 55 MPH in the number two freeway lane in Los Angeles and also passing at wide open throttle at double that speed. My Lincoln Mark VIII with its tight stock air suspension and steering is now a quiet, enjoyable to steer luxury car for the first time ever. The Advan...  Read More

BFGoodrich g-Force Sport vs. g-Force Sport COMP-2

Often times when a tire manufacturer replaces a model of tire, the newer model is slightly better than the previous version. Incremental improvements over the previous generation is what we typically see. Once and awhile, a tire company will completely wow us with a dramatically better product than the one it replaces. BFGoodrich really surprised me with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE

Good wet traction which at the time was a high priority. I have dedicated winter tires, so haven't had the opportunity to evaluate their snow traction. Good treadwear, considering they are used on a pickup which spends a good deal of time towing a fifth wheel trailer which puts a lot of load on the tires. Reasonable price. Probably would not buy these again...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

In the winter months I take my little fwd, six cylinder camry up to the ski hill in some pretty gnarly conditions that some people wouldn't drive in. One time we had a good snow dump and the plow trucks had plowed earlier that morning, but when I decided to travel up the fairly steep road, it had about an inch of snow on it with a fairly slippery/ shiny...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Have 10,000 miles on these tires and they have been great. Had the LE2's on my last truck and they were great on the highway and around town, but believe it or not these ride much nicer on the highway and have a more quiet ride. I have not driven through snow yet, but have driven in some nasty rain storms where there were several inches of standing water on...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 Building a Lasting Legacy?

This past weekend the sports world saw two champions add to their legacy. The new U.S. Open champion added another major title to his resume, and the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth N.B.A. title since 1999. There’s something to be said about consistently being on top – a place that’s familiar to the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2. Since its premiere in...  Read More
