Firestone Destination LE
Follow-Up Review: 21,500 miles on tires
Updating my review, now at 21K and all is well with the LE's. Very good rain tire and a fair snow tire. Rotated at a18K and tires are wearing even and wear rate is satisfactory. As they age they are following grooves in the road less, always nice. Learning to like the steering characteristicsf these tires. Put a set on the Wifeys 2005 Mercury Mariner. Really like them on the little SUV as well. Her SUV is AWD and better in the snow. <br><br>Would buy again if the price is right.
Initial Review: 12,200 miles on tires
These are the OEM original fitment on my '08 Tacoma. The tires are overall very good. The only weak spot I have uncovered are the soft sidewalls, which causes your initial steering input to be ignored and requires you to make a 2nd request to actually change direction. All else is good. Have stayed in balance, and feel round.
