THIS IS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE BEST TIRE THAT I HAVE EVER OWNED. THEY ARE QUIET, SMOOTH, AND COMFORTABLE. BUT, BEST OF ALL THEY GIVE ME A FEELING OF COMPLETE ASSURANCE IN MOST EVERY CONDITION. I DO USE A STUDLESS SNOW TIRE IN THE WINTER FOR THE SNOW AND ICE WE HAVE HERE IN CENTRAL OREGON. BUT FOR DRIVING THE I-5 CORRIDOR IN DRY AND RAIN AND DRIVING OVER MOUNTAIN PASSES WHERE WE ENCOUNTER RAIN, SLUSH AND LIGHT SNOW, THESE TIRES ARE PERFECT. I RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE, IN ANY TYPE OF VEHICLE - PASSENGER CARS AND SUV'S. IF THERE IS A BETTER TIRE OUT THERE, I HAVEN'T FOUND IT. AND THE WEAR INDICATORS THAT TELL YOU WHEN THEY ARE NO LONGER GOOD FOR LIGHT SNOW AND ONLY WET AND DRY, AND THEN ONLY DRY ARE INNOVATIVE AND WELCOME! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE BEST, THIS IS IT.

Tire racks review of this tire was bang on. Very happy with the tire like driving a new SUV. Handling and steering and drive comfort are great. Toyo tires which came with the vehicle never handle properly and in wet weather did not have confident in them.

I have been extremely pleased with these tires. The tread wear for an SUV is amazing. I plan to replace these before winter so that I have good snow traction, but who knows how many more miles they could go. These tires are quiet and perform well in all conditions. The only comment was that they needed to be force balanced initially. The only tire I would buy again.

Running on run flat tires was the worst tire experience I have ever had within my 40 years of driving.The stiff sidewalks transmit noise. No more bang from pot holes and my X5 is now quiet at high speeds. I purchased one of the last discontinued X5 factory spares kits, but a tow service membership is a great all-around protection whether with or without a spare. My old run flat tires lasted for 30 thousand painful miles and the lower cost of the new non run flat tires equates to 20 thousand miles to break even. This SUV is now set up to run on the highway and is not going to see much off-road adventure that would justify stronger sidewalls. This is my summer tire and so far so good. Just completed my 500 mile trip from the Sacramento Valley to the Central Oregon Coast up the I 5 corridor. The diesel motor loved the added grip and mini vans faded away thru the mountains.

So this is my second set. I put 70000 on the first set and the right rear developed a slow leak. Went to the local Firestone dealer and he said these tires need to be replaced. I said they have plenty of tread. He said after 4 years the side walls have had too much sun and wear. You do not want a blow out at 80 mph. These tires have been driven close to 100 mph across Texas in the summer. They have handled Stevens Pass Washington in snow storms. They have been on soft sand in Hawaii, Washington and Maryland. I'm in the military and move a lot. Logging trails in Washington and Louisiana . Ice storms in Maryland and Washington. I carried chains in the winter in Washington, but never used them. I think the law thought I was 4x4. If I rode on sand often I'd get something else. I tow occasionally, light boats and utility trailers. They are not the quietest or smoothest tires. They do not have aggressive AT tread, but for a great all around SUV tire I think they are an awesome value. I change the oil every 5 k and rotate the tires every 10 k. Check the air about once a month. I hope to put over 250k on the Volvo. If I do I'll be on my third set of Destination ATs. I'm going to put them on my pickup as soon as the ome wear out. The ome on the Volvo didn't last 20 k. I do not own stock in Firestone.

Initial Review, 7,500 Miles on Tires

I purchased these tires because the reviews on the most of the other options were poor. The tires have so far been a very good. The ride is soft and comfortable with very little noise. The wear rate has been good so far. The dealer just rotated them and reported no problems other then some very minor side wall issues. I think he was more interested in pointing something wrong out since I didn’t get the tires from that dealer.

These tires are great in the rain. No sliding or hydroplaning at all. We had an ice storm recently and the tires didn't do that great but the road was almost all ice. If there is any place I am disappointed it's in their performance in the snow. They are adequate but could be better. They lack the traction I’ve had with other SUV tires. They weren’t bad, just ok. Overall, so far, these tires have performed very well for the price.
