These tires are a great choice for a light truck. I have over 60000 miles on this set, and I will be ordering another set within a week or two. I drive a combination of highway and city, and during the winter, some occasional snow driving. The tires have performed very well in all conditions. They are reasonably quiet, look great, and you simply can't beat the mileage. Look not further friends...these are the best...not only in performance, but also in price!

Best Studded Winter/Snow Tires

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 by Steve Huffman

It's that time of year again. Time to get ready for the inevitable snow and ice that awaits drivers in Canada and parts of the United States. Tire Rack has several winter / snow tire options for just about any vehicle. Some drivers, however, prefer a studded tire. These tires do particularly well in rural and mountainous areas, as well as places that see their fair share of packed snow and ice. Studs can provide better bite on ice. If you're looking for one of the better studded winter tires, consider the following options.

Our most popular Studdable Winter / Snow tire is the Firestone Winterforce. This tire has been around for several seasons and has a proven track record. It has a very aggressive and deep directional tread design that helps it plow through the elements.

General's AltiMAX Arctic is another great option worth looking at. This tire does so well on its own that many drivers decide to drive on them without using studs. It can accommodate the use of optional metal studs and is designed to offer high levels of traction at low temperatures.

New for the 2013 winter season is the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter. Here is another deep, aggressive and directional treaded tire capable of taking on the winter elements. Designed for coupes, sedans, minivans, crossovers, SUVs and light-duty pickup trucks, the tire allows for alternating rows of optional metals studs that can be added in the shoulder and intermediate tread blocks to increase traction on hard-packed snow and icy roads.

Finally, Pirelli's Winter Carving can be studded to give you the additional traction you're looking for. While designed to accept tire studs, it can also be used without studs if desired. Winter Carving radials are designed to perform in wet and dry conditions, as well as enhance overall traction in snow and on ice.

Best Light Truck and SUV Winter / Snow Tires for 2013

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by Steve Huffman

This season one of the best winter / snow tires for light trucks and SUVs is the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2. It debuted last season and proved to be a solid performer. Michelin's FleX-Ice silica-based winter tread rubber compound offers firmness at higher temperatures for wet and dry road stability while it remains flexible at lower temperatures to enhance packed snow and ice traction. It's molded into a directional tread design that helps evacuate water and slush to improve hydroplaning resistance.

The Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 has been one of the top winter tires for several years and is back to take on another winter. It uses Bridgestone's Multicell Z compound featuring microscopic bubbles and tubes to absorb the thin film of water that forms as tires run over packed snow and ice, while micro bite particles contribute to the edge effect that improves grip on packed snow and icy surfaces.

If you're seeking a studdable winter option, the Firestone Winterforce UV is a great choice. Firestone Winterforce UV tires feature a winter tread compound molded into an aggressive directional tread pattern with tread blocks that are siped, stepped and can be studded to offer the biting edges necessary to provide traction in snow and on ice. Independent tread blocks feature high-density siping to enhance grip in loose snow while the intermediate and shoulder tread blocks are molded to accept studs that further enhance traction on hard-packed snow and ice. While not required, we can install the studs for your set of Winterforce UV tires.

Which Winter / Snow Tire is Best for You?

Friday, August 30, 2013 by Neal O'Neal

As much as we don't like to admit it, summer is ending and snow is just around the corner. When it comes to winter driving, traction is key and it starts with your tires. Even those vehicles with four-wheel drive, ABS or traction control still rely on their tires for maximum traction.

By design, all-season tires trade a little dry and wet road traction in moderate and warm temperatures to provide light snow traction in below freezing temperatures. Winter / snow tires trade a little dry and wet road handling in moderate and warm temperatures to emphasize wet, ice and snow traction in cold to moderate temperatures.

Below are the performance categories of snow tires available for passenger cars, trucks and SUVs.

I would recommend placing an advance order when you are sure of your selection, rather than waiting until you are in the midst of the snow season. This will help assure the product you want will be available for you, and likely get it to you ahead of the snowfall. For items that are not in stock yet, our order process doesn't charge your credit card until the product leaves our distribution center, therefore no advance charges will appear on your monthly statement until your order ships.

Take a look at our Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Packages to help you get to your destinations smoothly in winter's worst conditions. They are the best way to outfit your vehicle for the winter season. You'll have the best tires for the conditions you're driving in this winter!

Toyota RAV4 Tires

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 by Steve Huffman

The Toyota RAV4 has come a long way since its 1996 debut. Today, its a very sporty, modern mid-size SUV that's popular with many drivers. If it's time to replace the tires on your RAV4, consider the following options.

One of my favorite tires for this vehicle is the Yokohama Parada Spec-X. This Street/Sport Truck All-Season tire has a great feel. Designed to combine impressive looks and confident handling, it provides excellent year-round traction in North America's wide range of weather conditions, including light snow. The tire also is a quiet option for drivers who don't like road noise.

Another great option for RAV4 owners to look at is the Firestone Destination LE 2. This Highway All-Season tire combines long wear, a comfortable ride and all-season traction. It's not as sporty as the Yokohama, but it offers better all-season traction. The tire is also long-lasting as it comes with a 60,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Finally, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season is the top-rated tire in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category. It reduces rolling resistance and tire weight compared to Pirelli's previous CUV/SUV tire lines to increase fuel economy and lower the vehicle's CO2 emissions. The tire sits in the top spot in its category because it receives high marks in the following areas:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Cornering stability
  • Dry traction
  • Steering response
  • Ride comfort

Great Chevrolet Silverado Tires

Friday, April 26, 2013 by Steve Huffman

"Like a Rock." Chevy's full-size pickup keeps on trucking. The truck has evolved through the years, but one thing remains the same: dependability. Loyal owners hold on to their truck for many years, even through multiple sets of tires. Is it time to look for new tires for your Silverado?

If you're in the market for a new set, It's hard to go wrong with Michelin. That's why the Michelin LTX M/S2 is my favorite Highway All-Season tire for the Silverado. Besides its excellent ride qualities, including low noise and a comfortable ride, the LTX M/S2 has great all-season traction. The tire is also offered with a dependable 70,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Are you looking for a more aggressive tire? Take a look at the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain Firestone Destination A/T. This tire has been the top-rated option in the category for many years. The Destination A/T looks good while providing great off-road traction. It is tied or at the top of several performance ratings in the category, including:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Cornering stability
  • Dry traction
  • Steering response
  • Ride comfort
  • Noise comfort

One of the best value options for your Silverado is the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051. It provides a combination of comfort, handling and year-round traction, even in light snow. With over 28 million miles reported, the tire continues to stay in the the top ten of our Tire Survey Results.

It's hard to imagine a better tire. After 30,000 the tread is FLAT across and hardly worn. I have had people look at them during oil changes and mark "like new" on the worksheet. NO Vibration at all. I regulary drive in Utah where some roads have an 80 mph speed and are amazed. They ae probably the only tire I would do that on in 120 degree heat and a full load of people. As far as snow goes, no need for winter tires, they are amazing in deep snow. Quiet, safe, smooth, long wearing. If I ever need tires for a light truck, I know not to even shop around for anything else, why bother? Steve

 

Firestone Destination A/T: A Capable All-Terrain Tire with Good Street Manners

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 by Marshall Wisler

The On-/Off-Road All-Terrain class is one that receives much attention from owners of light trucks and SUVs looking for a more aggressive tire than their Original Equipment. With a few exceptions, most of today's trucks and SUVs come shod with standard Highway All-Season tires that put an emphasis on treadlife and a quiet ride. 

What is missing from these O.E. tires? It most cases, it's an aggressive biting edge that's capable of light off-road or heavy snow use, while still maintaining acceptable levels of treadwear and road comfort. Tires in this performance category are not to be confused with Off-Road Maximum Traction tires. In many cases, On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires are available with mileage warranties from the manufacturer.

A fine example of a do-it-all all-terrain is the Firestone Destination A/T. This tire offers a degree more biting edge over most factory tires without becoming too extreme. While tires exist that might perform better in dedicated off-road situations, few tires are as versatile as this one. The well-rounded nature of this tire has translated in a first place ranking in our Tire Survey Results.

Available for a wide range of applications, shop by vehicle to see if this tire is a match for your light truck or SUV. 

Looking for Affordable Tires?

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 by Ben Rooney

Here at Tire Rack, we built our business on higher performance tires for more exotic applications. The inventory expanded over the years as we also carry tires that are targeted toward regular cars used for everyday transportation, and tires for the enthusiast on a budget.

Fuzion, the entry level brand from Bridgestone, often has the best-priced tires in a given size. Though not as well known as its older siblings from Bridgestone and Firestone, Fuzion tires offer an excellent value. The Fuzion Touring is a smooth riding, all-season tire that's very aggressively priced, while the UHP is Fuzion's new Ultra High Performance All-Season tire designed for sporty handling combined with capability in cold weather and light snow. 

Kumho has been a stalwart in the performance-per-dollar arena. Little known when they first came to the United States, they have built a loyal following over the past decade or so. Their Ecsta 4X is often my go-to selection for a value-oriented all-season performance tire. The Solus KR21 does consistently well in surveys among customers needing a regular all-season passenger tire. 

Among light trucks and SUVs, the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051 has an excellent combination of long treadwear, reliable performance and an excellent price. With each option fitting into most budgets, you're getting a great tire for your vehicle as each is currently ranked in the top ten in their class.

January 26, 2013

I replaced the Contitrac's on my '08 Tundra Crewmax with the 'LE 2's' because of price and consumer ratings. The Conti's were worn out, not badly, but due for replacement. I have about 5k on the LE 2's now, and I'm still amazed at how well these tires perform! They are VERY quiet, and the difference in straight line traction, is just, well, amazing! I have the 5.7 V8 w/ 4.3:1 rearend gears, and with the conti's, I could make the tires spin on dry pavement at anything less than 30 mph, and were hopeless on wet pavement- never had them in snow- wouldn't want to either. We had 5 in. of snow a few days ago, and the LE 2's traction, even in snow, is way, WAY, more than I expected! My truck is 2WD, and the truck felt as sure-footed, or even more so, than previous 4WD vehicles I've owned in the past. Handling is as good, or better than any other tires I've had on similar vehicles in the past. The Tundra weighs about 5200 lbs. empty, and I did have to adjust tire pressure, because installers usually inflate new tires to the pressures indicated in the vehicle, and at that pressure the tires felt squidgy. The fronts are at 43psi, and rears at 40psi- huge difference! If these tires actually last to 60k miles- this will be the best light truck tires I've EVER had. Good Job Firestone!

I wouldn't normally post a review until I had put more miles on a set of tires, but thought I would in case there's anyone else out there like me not wanting to spend a fortune on tires but still wanting good handling. Frankly, Firestone would have been the last brand I would normally have bought due to my perception that the company has had too many quality problems, but I honestly don't know if that's accurate or not. At any rate, being in a low budget mode right now I went for these due to the incredible price, the outstanding reviews by owners on this site, and with winter coming up. The reviews are what convinced me. Living in middle Tennessee we don't get the serious snows like in other parts of the country, but last year we got several that were pretty heavy for our area and with some serious ice a couple of times. Nice to know reviewers rank these very high for that type driving in case we get some this year. The tread on these is very deep and aggressive, and look great on the truck in the blackwall. A little squirm when cornering but to be expected on a new tire with deep tread. Rain handling is awesome. They do have a little highway hum, to be expected with a winter tire, but I have a louder than stock exhaust so who cares? The ride quality is pretty good, and this truck has a pretty stiff suspension. They make them in an LT (light truck) 10-ply model, but I got the passenger rated ones since I don't haul much or tow anything. And if anyone is considering going one size wider than the stock 255-70/17's on a 2007 F-150, the 265-70/17's I bought fit fine and with plenty of clearance at the rear shocks and the front suspension arms, and a very minor amount taller. I'll come back and do a follow-up after more miles and more weather. (If you're going to order from these guys, check out Spencer at extension 690, a really professional guy . Got the order right and to me in two days.)

December 25, 2012

I've had these on my truck for about 8k now and couldn't be happier with them. Not going to lie, they are loud on the highway, specifically between 50 and 65, they seem to get a little quieter at higher speeds. These are about 4" larger than the factory tire size on my truck and they fit well. Just had our first snow (which I was waiting to write this review for) and they are great. Aside from studding them, or going with a true winter/ice tire, ice and light snow traction doesn't really get much better... On our farm, we had small drifts of about a foot in places sitting on top of loose grass - couldn't have asked for more traction with any tire...

On the road, they are civilized in the dry and wet specifically - never once had any of those "butt pucker" moments with these, whereas a set of the older BFG M/T's I have had several, different vehicles, but driven the same...

In the mud, they are amazing. A friends truck got stuck in a mud pit (with a m/t tire), pulled him out, I was able to pull into the mud, stop, back up, and continue... Sure, different truck, but these are so good at self cleaning that never did they feel bogged down...

I don't think its possible, but the only improvement possible, IMO, with these would be reduced noise. Relative to other M/T Tires, though, they are similar. I would recommend rotating these tires more often than most, I've been doing every 3-4k...

The Firestone Destination AT was a great tire for my 03 Tacoma Doublecab V6 SR5 TRD. I rode them most of the way to the wearbars, which totaled 65,000 miles, 15,000 over the warranty. The tires were champion tires off-road, never any problems in sand, rocks, stream crossings, wet grass. On-road, the tires were louder and louder the more they wore down, they cupped easily, and I lost 2-2.5 MPG in comparison to highway all-season tires. Still, though, the best fuel economy I ever achieved was 21.2 MPG, with the tires at 30 PSI and doing lots of coasting and mostly highway. Not too bad for off-road tires. If I gunned it around town or used 4WD alot, the MPG would drop to 17.5 MPG at the lowest. So, not too bad all around, considering the Tacoma is rated at 16C/19H MPG. In the last 5,000 miles of their lives, the Destination AT tires started slipping in the rain when accelerating and taking corners. The noise for the last 10,000 miles was loud, but still not as loud as muds. After 40,000 miles, the tires started slipping in deep snow even in 4WD. Ironically, because of the good snow grip, the tires weren't so great in very light snow only because I couldn't engage 4WD without axle binding. In light snow, I used 4WD to get going, then took it out of 4WD for downhill, cruising, and turns. In deep snow, the traction was excellent because I was able to keep it in 4WD. If I had a limited slip center differential or an open/lockable center differential, I would have been unstoppable in any snow from light dusting to 16" of wet snow like we got here in Maryland in Snowmageddon 2010. I replaced these tires with the Highway All Season Destination LE2 because I wanted quieter and more fuel-efficient on-road performance. All in all, these are great tires for light trucks, and I definitely recommend them if you drive more offroad than most but still drive on the highway a lot.

I previously had a set of Michelin Lattitude tires on my truck, and loved them. The LE2s, so far, have been as good to drive on with one exception; on-center feel. It does seem like this tire wanders a bit at highway speeds in a straight line. I have since had my alignment checked and have inflated the tires with nitrogen. I believe the alignment may have positively effected this situation slightly. The ride is great. Have not had a chance to get them in any snow or ice conditions as I purchased in July 2012 and since I live in Atlanta it might be a couple years before we even get any snow. Coming off of Michelins into the Firestones, my expectations have been exceeded thus far, as there is a reasonably significant difference in price. The on-center feel issue I mentioned is relatively minor; rating the Michelins on this I would rate a 10, and the Firestones I would rate an 8. On a personal level, I have owned many vehicles in my lifetime including 7 BMWs and have had quite a bit of track experience, so I tend to be quite judgemental on my tires. My expectations and evaluations are based upon the real-life expectations of this specific tire on this specific vehicle. Meaning, I do not expect either to have the characteristics of a performance car. It is what it is. For a reasonably heavy pickup truck and a light truck tire, this is a decent combination for a highway-tread tire, especcially considering the cost. Lastly, I have not noticed any difference in fuel economy, which I consider that to be a good thing.

Superb tire...extremely quiet and comfortable to drive with nice turn in characteristics. The tire is very stable and realllllly improved the ride of my truck. I previously had the Destination M/T's on my truck which is an excellent overall mud tire. After 45,000 or so miles, the treadwear was fantastic, but the tires really got loud. I have previously purchased these tires and was reminded how good they really are....GREAT price and service from Tire Rack didn't hurt either !! Highly recommended for general street and light off road duty. They are excellent in snow as well, though ice handling, like any non studded tire, was a little sketch at times...We no longer live in snow country so it is no longer a concern...just ordered a second set for my wife's Expedition...buy them...they are a very good tire at any price !!

Firestone Destination LE Replaced by the New Firestone Destination LE2

Friday, June 29, 2012 by Gary Stanley

Since Bridgestone purchased Firestone back in 1988, much of Bridgestone's cutting-edge technology has been incorporated into Firestone tires. For many years, the Firestone Destination LE has been a popular value-oriented replacement tire for street driven light trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles. This all-season tire is smooth and quiet with good wet traction and is offered with a generous 60,000-mile treadwear warranty.

 

All good things must come to an end, and Firestone has replaced the well-loved Destination LE with a new and improved tire, aptly called the Firestone Destination LE2.
 

Firestone Destination LE
Firestone Destination LE
Firestone Destination LE 2
Firestone Destination LE2


How do the two tires compare? The tires are different enough that Firestone doesn't recommend mixing the two designs, so the Destination LE 2 should be installed in a set of four. Firestone has also made some notable improvements :

  • Longer treadwear
  • Quieter ride
  • Better winter traction
  • Improved dry grip
  • Lower rolling resistance

The Firestone Destination LE2 is an even better tire than the Destination LE, which was already a great tire. It's available in sizes to fit many Ford, GM and Chevy full-size pickups, as well as popular SUV and CUVs like the Nissan Murano and Ford Edge.
