Firestone Destination LE
Initial Review: 70,000 miles on tires
February 28, 2014

Got these tires on my Yukon when I bought it. The tires were obviously not new. I remember about half the tread remained when I bought the car. Amazingly, It took twice as long as I thought it would to get to the wear bar on these! I put 40,000 HARD miles on these tires, with half their tread. I tow a trailer, I go off-roading, i commute, I work out of this truck, I go on long trips. No matter what, this tire on this vehicle took anything I threw at it and asked for more. I only got stuck twice with these tires off roading. Both times I was somewhere I had no business being. Once was in the sand dunes in the Outer Banks, the other was at an off road park in a 12 mud bog. Clearly i exceeded the limit of my tire and vehicle setup! But on pack sand at the beach, rocky trails, gravel mountain roads, in DC city traffic, or any other off-road situation, the tire performed beautifully. ON the highway, the tire was respectably quiet, smooth and wore EXCEPTIONALLY well. Some of my surprise is that I am used to performance cars that need tires about 3x as often, but this 60,000 mile tire was worth every penny and I bought a set of LE2's to replace these. Stand by for a review of those!
