Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
April 30, 2014

My Mini Van is modified for my needs and is Wheel Chair accessible. Making it so, requires many modifications that effects many aspects adversely as well as driving dynamics. Traction in wet, ice & snow is a top concern for my needs and these tires performed very well for me. I live in Fayetteville AR and it's very hilly and since it does not snow a lot, when it does so the town is not well equipped to dell with it. We did get our fair share this past winter and I was very pleased on how these tires performed in fresh and untouched snow of 5 or more inch snow. It is holding well on tread wear and preforms well in rain and such. Noise and comfort are not my main concern since these are well compromised due to all the modifications, but these do as well if not better than what were the factory tires, I have a little over 40000 on the van and about 10000 on these tires. Predictable braking and handling perfomance and I'm not pushing it anyway, and the price was very good(-:

I spent about six months researching tires, finally chose the Destination LE2's, and they've been a great choice for the price. They're quiet and responsive on dry, wet, and mildly snowy roads. I didn't have to deal with any deep snow last winter but I don't have any reason to believe they'd be a problem. I haven't experienced any significant change in fuel milage. They handle well with an empty bed or with a cord of firewood, in the city or on the highway. Finding good road tires for a Ranger can be a challenge depending on how you use your truck, but I think most owners would be as pleased with these as I am.

A good tire, tread lasted well. Good off road traction. Biggest weakness was hard packed snow and ice - had to use 4WD whenever those conditions occurred or it was slide time- and still drive very carefully Not a great winter tire for paved roads with those kind of conditions.

April 20, 2014

This is a great tire, but not great for this car and my driving style. I sized this -1 (factory OEM is 17"), and in doing so created the majority of my "gripes" I have with this tire. The size I bought it in has been discontinued.

I have been using snows for the past 20 years, and I've tried Blizzaks, Generals, Firestones, Goodyears, Dunlops. I average around 7K a year driving in the winter on snows.

Good: The tire is an exceptional snow tire. Period. Snow to this tire is a traction additive. Deep snow, slush, light snow - not a problem. The tire hangs on very well when set on a singular course in the dry. Reasonably quiet. Stable under braking.

Bad: If you're a normal driver (commuter), *obey* the speed limit, etc. 95% of the bad won't apply to you. Because it is an exceptional snow tire, it leaves a lot to be desired in the dry. This tire is heavily siped so the tread-blocks are squishy. Full throttle acceleration isn't advised.

The web is full of comments of people complaining about the soft sidewalls, which I didn't heed. The sidewalls are *soft* and as a result I feel the tire compress over bumps before the car does. Somewhat unsettling if your car is stiffly sprung like the WRX is as you feel it "pogo" over transitions. Should you need to do a quick transition at highway speeds it is a sphincter clinching event. Just plan on hitting whatever you're trying to avoid if you're doing anything over 40 - the tires are easily overwhelmed.

Conclusion:

- A GREAT SNOW TIRE
- Very soft sidewalls - not intended for "sportier" or "firmly damped" cars.
- Surprisingly good tread wear - I wore off less than 2/32nds in 6711 miles of driving.
- These are not Blizzaks - on ice you're pretty much on your own unless you get studs. Given the price, I wasn't expecting them to match a Blizzak's performance.

Let me begin by saying I was (and am) a die-hard fan of the Firestone Winterforce for decades. For reasons I won't get into here I ended up with a set of Altimax Arctics instead of Winterforces. Let's just say I am SO GLAD I did. The Altimax's are better in every way! They go through anything, and are super quiet - even more so than the all season tires they replaced! They have extremely deep lugs (Probably 12/32nd's) and are a little squirmy when they're brand new but the tradeoff of being almost invincible during the winter months is worth it.

Wow, I have had these on my vehicle for almost four weeks now and I am impressed! Just took my winters off and had about three inches of show the day after my install. I have to say these handled the snow better than any other all seasons I have ever owned and they blow away the Firestone's that came on my vehicle from the factory. Great wet traction, good handling, quiet and comfortable. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a great Grand Touring All-Season tire. I am looking forward to piling on the miles!

Just been through one the most brutal winters Michigan has to offer. Record snow falls as well.These tires kept me on and off the road with no problems. Muddy back roads hunting/fishing or off the beaten trails to an ice fishing lake, they never let me down.
Good solid on/off the road tire. I would recommend for any 4x4. Would definitely purchase again.

Chicago had a brutal 2013/14 winter, so these tires hit the full gamut from light to deep snow, packed to fluffy and ice. Compared to the OEM Bridgestone tires, these blew them out of the water. They are a little louder, but not that much. Gas mileage stayed about the same. Compared to other tires for this vehicle, these didn't break the bank and have performed better than expected.
Beware, Firestone dealers will try to get you to do everything under the sun whether your vehicle needs it or not. Just get the tires. If you get the credit card, you have 6 months to pay it off in full. Really good deal.

I installed these tires when I bought the car used and have had nothing but positive results. In the winter, these tires perform well in the snow. My AWD Subaru has no issues maintaining traction in all conditions. Driving in the rain is not any different than dry pavement. The previous reviews regarding low traction in snow and rain don't match my experience.

March 26, 2014

Purchased four of these tires for an old 1995 Subaru Impreza L AWD daily driver. My main concerns for new tires was superior snow/ice handling, acceptable/above average wet handling, and above average dry traction with a great tread-life while keeping prices low. After I did extensive research and comparison charts I purchased the Firestone Precision Touring tires right as winter was in full force.

*In the snow/ice, the tires handle extremely well. I was driving around plow trucks with ease and mated with the AWD, was truly unstoppable this winter. Once the snow hit a few inches, the tires still gripped and when they did give way to sliding, were extremely predictable, allowing me to counter-steer with ease.
*Wet handling is acceptable, though not the greatest, but is not a reason to dismiss the tire, as it is still very predictable in those hazards.
*Dry traction and responsiveness are perfect with the only downside to cornering stability, which I believe is the weakest point of the tires. It can feel as if the tire would give way or takes a second to find the road when cornering. Despite this harsh review; it is actually on par with other tires for dry cornering in this price range.
*As to tread-wear, I cannot speak as to the performance of the category since I have not had the tires long enough.
*The comfort level is great. The tires take harsh bumps without any real complaints; in fact, I believe that I could have potentially bent a rim in lieu of popping a tire, of course due to the enormous potholes that plagued PA and DE (the Northeast Snow Belt area) this winter.
*Price - $77.00 a tire, which didn't break the bank for an old car but was well worth it.

Overall, I was looking for some affordable tires that would give me the best points of all-season tires, with increased winter time performance. The Firestone's came through and I will definitely purchase again, pending the outcome of the tread-wear. I would highly recommend them.

I got this tires back in the fall and have driven little over 8,000 miles on them. 60/40 highway/city driving. Right away I noticed these tires grip the road incredibly well. Of course a new tire is going to be better than your old tire with no tread left. But I think because these tires are brand new from Firestone the rubber was very soft, which gives it the great grip on the road. I would almost categorize these as summer tires, but they did perform well this past crazy winter in Chicago.
There is one HUGE negative about these tires though, my MPG has gone WAY down. I mean by 5mpg down! That is a lot. Everything else about these tires are great, but because of the mpg loss I would not buy again and would not recommend these unless you don't care about money at the pump.

If you want a good winter tire, look no farther you won't find one,In my opinion of driving in snow country for almost 50 years the Winterforce is one of the best tires I have ever used. A word of advice, just because you have snow tires don't mean you can drive on snow like bare roads YOU CAN'T.

I was torn between these tires and and the Firestone Winterforce. I had the Winterforce tires on another vehicle of mine which was a Buick Lesabre the Winterforce made my Lesabre a tank in the snow I always felt safe and in control in any winter driving condition but the tires had to be switched out after winter. I wanted a winter tire that had some all season characteristics so I took a chance on these Goodyears and was immediately impressed they were quieter than the BF Goodrich tire that I had just taken off the car the sidewall is softer than an all-season tire but that is to be expected. I previously had Michelin's winter ice tires on this car for twice the cost the only thing I can say that was better about the Michelins they had a stiffer sidewall. These Goodyear tires so far have more then met my expectations.We have been hammered with lots of snow and sub zero temps in Minnesota this year and the Goodyears have performed flawlessly. I can't recommend these tires enough!

I have these on my 2011 Miata, with a 6-speed manual and LSD. While their dry pavement traction is not quite as good as the Bridgestone summer tires that came with the car, these are probably the best all seasons I've ever had on a Miata (and I've been driving Miatas since 1996). I've previously used Bridgestone, Firestone, and Toyo all-seasons. My Miata is my only car, so parking it in bad weather isn't an option. I haven't had them long enough to truly judge wear, but they seem to be ok so far. While they were fairly quiet when brand new, I agree that they are becoming somewhat noisy. The ride is much less harsh than prior tires, probably due to somewhat softer sidewalls, but I still have a great amount of grip, and feel confident during hard cornering. This winter is the worst we've had in years, but I've never had any real trouble with traction. At about 45 mph on packed snow and ice, I tried to get the car out of shape using only the steering wheel, but was unable to do so. When I did break loose using the throttle, it was very controllable. In about 7 inches of snow on an unplowed parking lot, I had no trouble moving the car at all. I have never tried winter tires, so I can't do that comparison, but as long as you don't get too rambunctious, these tires do the job. I will also say that I really like their grip on both wet and dry pavement. When reading some of the negative comments on this tire, I almost wonder if they're reviewing the same tire, unless this tire performs that much differently from car to car. All I can say is that I'm very pleased with this tire. If this winter becomes the trend, I may get a set of winter tires, but barring that, I feel these are a really good tire for those who want to stick with all-seasons for their car.

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!

Just went through one of the worst winter storms in Minnesota/Wisconsin. Had to drive to the airport in Minnesota. These tires handled the ice on the freeway very well. The Off ramps were not plowed on the way home. The first off ramp to not be plowed was getting off of I-694 to HWY 36 snow was at least a foot deep. Yes I put my trusty Dodge Durango in 4H and and let er rip, I had my doubts about this tire and no longer do handled that off ramp like a champ. Then came the fun part.... I live in rural Wisconsin and when I got close to home ...no roads had been plowed, again had to put the old Durango in 4H and plow through about a mile and a half of snow drift that were about four feet high, it was a scary ride but these Firestone's did not have a problem with the high drifts and got me home bottom line. I was thinking of getting a pure A/T tire but now know these LE 2 tires out performed what I thought they could do. Nice tire !! If they keep it the same I will be buying these tires again when the time comes no need to research again.

Just put these Firestone Destination LE2's on, replacing the Michelin Latitude Touring tires that came with the Jeep. What an improvement!! With the Latitude's I was slipping and sliding all over the place - couldn't corner at all and even on straightaways I could feel the Jeep swaying and sliding - they felt dangerous! These LE2's are awesome - a night and day difference! We had about 2 inches of snow last night, so I could immediately compare the 2 tires. On the way to the tire store I was sliding all over, on the way back I tried very hard to get them to slip and slide. There was still some slipping and sliding of course (I was pushing these tires to see what the "breakaway" point was) but the difference was clearly noticeable. It's great to feel like I can go around a corner at more than 5 miles an hour, and change lanes on the highway without gripping the wheel with both hands and hoping I didn't end up in a ditch or facing oncoming traffic the wrong way. This Wisconsin winter has been rough but with these tires I'll be able to face what's left of it without feeling like I may die any second. There was no tire noise (same as the Michelin's) and the ride was great, but now I feel safe driving my Jeep!
