Firestone Destination LE 2
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
January 26, 2013

I replaced the Contitrac's on my '08 Tundra Crewmax with the 'LE 2's' because of price and consumer ratings. The Conti's were worn out, not badly, but due for replacement. I have about 5k on the LE 2's now, and I'm still amazed at how well these tires perform! They are VERY quiet, and the difference in straight line traction, is just, well, amazing! I have the 5.7 V8 w/ 4.3:1 rearend gears, and with the conti's, I could make the tires spin on dry pavement at anything less than 30 mph, and were hopeless on wet pavement- never had them in snow- wouldn't want to either. We had 5 in. of snow a few days ago, and the LE 2's traction, even in snow, is way, WAY, more than I expected! My truck is 2WD, and the truck felt as sure-footed, or even more so, than previous 4WD vehicles I've owned in the past. Handling is as good, or better than any other tires I've had on similar vehicles in the past. The Tundra weighs about 5200 lbs. empty, and I did have to adjust tire pressure, because installers usually inflate new tires to the pressures indicated in the vehicle, and at that pressure the tires felt squidgy. The fronts are at 43psi, and rears at 40psi- huge difference! If these tires actually last to 60k miles- this will be the best light truck tires I've EVER had. Good Job Firestone!
