Firestone Destination A/T: A Capable All-Terrain Tire with Good Street Manners

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 by Marshall Wisler

The On-/Off-Road All-Terrain class is one that receives much attention from owners of light trucks and SUVs looking for a more aggressive tire than their Original Equipment. With a few exceptions, most of today's trucks and SUVs come shod with standard Highway All-Season tires that put an emphasis on treadlife and a quiet ride. 

What is missing from these O.E. tires? It most cases, it's an aggressive biting edge that's capable of light off-road or heavy snow use, while still maintaining acceptable levels of treadwear and road comfort. Tires in this performance category are not to be confused with Off-Road Maximum Traction tires. In many cases, On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires are available with mileage warranties from the manufacturer.

A fine example of a do-it-all all-terrain is the Firestone Destination A/T. This tire offers a degree more biting edge over most factory tires without becoming too extreme. While tires exist that might perform better in dedicated off-road situations, few tires are as versatile as this one. The well-rounded nature of this tire has translated in a first place ranking in our Tire Survey Results.

Available for a wide range of applications, shop by vehicle to see if this tire is a match for your light truck or SUV.
