Firestone Destination A/T
Initial Review: 35,000 miles on tires
April 12, 2012

I have these (in p-metric version) on a mildly modified 4Runner (V6) that is carrying the added weight of aftermarket skid plates, control arms, steel wheels, and recovery gear. The Destination ATs look pretty tame but have been through winters in RI, winter driving in ME, offroading in ME, and beach driving in RI and OBX. They've been unstoppable -- kept up with highly modified rigs with MT tires on Bill Burke excursions in the back woods (e.g. way beyond fire access roads) driving over rocks, logs, stumps, etc. at 18 psi. Been cautious in mud, but driven in water up to top of bumper without issue. Soft sand never a problem when appropriately aired down. They ride smoothly and quietly on the highway with no problems when wet or dry at 38 psi. Rotated every 5-7,000 miles. Still have decent tread after approximately 35,000 miles. I highly recommend them and will more than likely get another set in future (although contemplating going from 265/70/17 to 255/75/17 next time).
