Firestone Destination LE Replaced by the New Firestone Destination LE2

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.

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.

While they are not as good as dedicated winter snow tires, they are indeed good in snow compared to other all-season tires.
