Firestone Destination A/T
Initial Review: 30,000 miles on tires

I bought these tires with a rim package from tire rack 2 years ago. Since getting them I have driven on tarmac, snow, ice, sand, gravel, and mud. I can say that these ties have held up great and I am very impressed. I like to get the best product available and the reviews for this tire sold me in the first place. After getting it, they have held up well and still have plenty of tread. On dry pavement they handle great and provide great traction. They are awesome in the rain as well. I did not have any issues on gravel or sand. The side walls are pretty strong, gave me great traction in sand, decent traction in mud. It held up well with a pallet of shingles I had to haul 30 miles. The only draw, is that the ice traction is a bit sketchy and there are some cracks developing where the tread and sidewall meet. The ride is a little bit rougher, but I don't mind it. It is a huge difference from the Generals that came with the car. As far as noise goes, I can't hear anything, but my exhaust is loud. Hopes this helps with your decision.
