Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires

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 the roadways and these tires stuck to the road even through deep, muddy holes. On the highway they are responsive and smooth. Great tire. If they wear well and hold up through the winter I will definitely buy them again.

I know I'm comparing apples and oranges having swapped out a set of old Destination A/T all terrain tires that were so old that they were literally rotting apart. The old square edge tire were noisy and not good at all in snow and ice. It was a huge difference putting on these LE all season tires with the weird, squiggly tread pattern. But WOW are they quiet and smooth riding compared to the old off roaders! And then there was winter, WOW again! The old "All Terrain" tires often embarassed me on icy roads slipping and sliding all over the place in my XLT "off road" equiped Ranger 4x4! Now with these LE tires I can hardly justify engaging the 4 wheel drive in snow, they are that good! And today I just enjoyed the peace and quiet of these tires as they whispered down the road! Like driving on air.

I've only had these tires for one month but I have to say they are the best tires I have purchased. I have always purchased Michelin, Goodyear or Firestone's and the Pirelli are by far better. They are so quiet and provides a very smooth ride. Will definitely purchase these from now on. Can't wait to test them during this coming winter.

Just finished 8th (yes, eighth) winter with this set running in Minneapolis/StPaul on a RWD 1999 Mercedes C280, my daily driver on a 10 mile round-trip 5-weekday commute. I bolt them on approx Dec 1 and pull them off approx April 15. Tread is half worn, if even that. Very heavy snowfall this past winter (toughest conditions I've seen in a decade). Tires performed perceptibly equal to first winter (2007,) which is to say excellent. Great value and service. Purchased as a tire/wheel set from Tire Rack in Jan 2007, as their recommended combo.

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.
