Firestone Destination LE 2
Initial Review: 4,500 miles on tires
December 30, 2013

I bought these tires based solely upon the reviews and survey data found here on TireRack.
We drive on unpaved b-roads here often, many of which do not receive any winter maintenance. Understanding that this is not a snow-purpose tire, I still have yet to get stuck. I'm quite pleased. As far as ride comfort and quiet go, in MY case, this tire is DEAD SILENT. I've replaced the wheel bearings and CV's on my 190,000 mile Pilot so I've got nothing filtering or molesting the tires' noise (if they were to make any) and The Pilot with these tires installed is the most serene place I can find. Our 2012 Equinox? Noisy. 2011 Silverado? Noisy. '06 Legacy GT? Noisy. Pilot? SNOOZE CRUISE. Kids can hear the DVD player without headphones, I can carry a conversation with my 3rd-row passengers, and when I'm the only occupant the tires STICK in the turns. The Pilot isn't a sports car, but it has Honda DNA and these tires certainly don't let it down.

They do kinda ---- in the mud, though. I'll take the trade-off.
