Firestone Destination A/T
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires
September 17, 2012

These tires are very nice, and for the price they are pretty decent. They handle well on all the off-road trails I take them on. They are not very deep tread, so if that is the look you are going for then do not get these tires. But they handle superb on the highway and city (they are very quiet, I can not stand the loud tires that whine on the road) driving and I have never been stuck with them, came close, but never stuck. Though I would recommend these tires to anyone that drives mainly highway but yet goes off-road everyone once and awhile. Now, these tires do fairly well in snow, the tread patterns do a great job of keeping the snow out of them, so they can continue to grab. My old maxis buckshots did horrible compared to these. Now ice, they do not do that good... but think about, what tire will grab onto ice well? -None. Lastly I would like to mention the treadwear. It is fair. They are not looking like they will last forever. But they have well over 60% tread left and its 10,000 on the marker. Plus I live in Boone, NC and around here if you can get tires to last 20,000miles you are doing good. So for oversized off-road tires they are doing great. Hope this little spiel has helped a little bit in convincing you that these are very (very) nice tires. For the money, you honestly can not beat them.
