Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
March 01, 2014

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!
