Initial Review, 31,000 Miles on Tires
January 08, 2013

Terrific tires. Came new on the 2008 Outlook XE FWD which I purchased used in 2011. Smooth, quiet ride. Never had a problem on rainy wet roads. Usually we get a few ice or snow events here in the SC upstate. But as of purchasing my Outlook. I Havent had the opportunity to drive in snow or ice.

Summers here in SC can be very long and Temperatures in the 90's can last for months. Tires take a beating from the heat. I've never had a set of tire's that reached their life expectancy. But the Tread on these tires seems to be holding its own with over 31,000 miles on them. Should easily get another 30-40k miles.

I like them a lot. What I dont like is the Price. With prices ranging up to and well over $200 per tire. But if I can get 60-70k miles out of them. I think they'd be worth purchasing another set.

I've had three sets of Firestone Destination LE on my Expedition and each set had little to no tread left before they hit 50,000 miles. With the worsts set barely making 40k miles. As I said earlier. Summer heat wreaks havoc on tires here in the upstate.
