For years, the Firestone Destination LE has been a favorite in the line-up for SUV and light truck applications. Since 2001 the marketplace has changed from a light duty pickup truck dominated arena to a crossover utility vehicle (CUV) dominated market segment. A corresponding change in tire demands has also occurred. From primarily utility focused for the pickup, to a quiet and comfortable ride with good handling for the CUV owner. Firestone recognizes this change by releasing the second-generation Destination LE2.
A bold new sidewall design looks great on everything from the traditional pickup truck to the newer CUVs and premium SUVs. The tread pattern has evolved to utilize the latest in tread design and tire construction. With a primary focus on ride and character of the newer vehicles in the marketplace, the tire's tread pattern has been optimized through noise sequencing to provide noise reduction. The footprint has also been computer optimized, which aids in even contact pressure, a quiet ride and even treadwear. A closed shoulder design also assists in even treadwear and the desired ride. This feature provides stability in cornering, too. Circumferential grooves along with the sweeping slots move water out from under the tire. Additionally, zigzag sipes provide cutting edges for ice, snow and wet traction. Rolling resistance has been improved to provide better fuel economy through the use of silica. It also helps to provide consistent grip in the wet through the life of the tire.
