Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

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...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Had to replace the OEM Michelin Primacy MXV4 at 17k miles. Love these Firestones. Only 200 miles, but we've already had dry and wet roads, light snow, slush, deep powdery snow and ice. This tire is a beast. Only condition I haven't experienced yet is heavy rain at highway speeds. I'm hopeful that wear holds up well.Ride comfort and ride noise is outstanding,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination ST

I've never really been a fan of the asymmetrical tread designs, so was a bit nervous about getting these tires. I have tried many tires on my Mercedes R350 and these Firestones are at least as good as the Michelin Latitude Tour HP and better than the Continental 4X4 Contact. The ride they give is very solid but smooth. Handling is excellent, given the large...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

We purchased this set of tires based upon the TireRack reviews from our local Firestone dealer. We have been very happy with the choice. The tires handle well, and the raised white outside lettering look aggressive, but not conservatively so, on the family SUV hauler. The handling has been very good, and the tires still look and feel as if they have not worn...  Read More

My in-laws recently purchased a 2010 Nissan Murano SL. They were looking for a crossover SUV to use for traveling and daily driving and this vehicle fit the bill perfectly.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

These Firestone Destination A/Ts are great! I now have 66,000 miles on the tires and it looks like they could last another 5,000 miles although the tread has started to cup in the last 3 or 4,000 miles. The tires were rotated every 6-7,000 miles and I've had absolutely no problems with tire balancing throughout the life of the tires. Even though the 4WD...  Read More
