Firestone Tire Reviews
When it comes to truck and SUV tires, Firestone offers up two sub-brands: Destination and Transforce.
Under the Destination brand, Firestone offers up five different tires for different needs. Up first is the Destination A/T, a rugged and capable tire with plenty of on-road manners too. It comes with a 50,000 mile treadwear warranty.
Up next is the Destination A/T2, combining many of the same features of the A/T, the AT2 is unique in that it’s a true four-season tire and is rated for extreme winter use. Better yet, it comes with a 55,000 mile treadwear warranty… and even has a great look.
The Destination LE2 is an affordable all-season tire built for modern crossovers and SUVs. Design for on-road comfort, low-noise and appropriate levels of grip, it’s also designed to last with a 60,000 mile limited treadwear warranty.
The Destination M/T2 is Firestone’s mud terrain tire and is the brand’s most extreme off-road tire. With four rows of big tread lugs to dig into the earth, and plenty of open space (void) to help toss it back out, the M/T2 is extremely capable.
And finally, under the Destination brand is the Destination X/T. This tire is similar to the A/T2 including it’s three-peak mountain snowflake symbol, but is designed specially for 3/4 and one-ton pickup trucks, as well as some Jeeps and body-on-frame SUVs. It comes with 50,000 mile treadwear warranty.
Moving on to the Transforce sub-brand, it’s designed for trucks and SUVs with a real focus on commercial vehicles and, therefore, durability. This lineup is quite simple with the Transforce H/T and HT2, as well as the Transforce A/T and AT2 – with the 2s representing the second generation of the tire.
The H/T and HT2 are highway terrain tires, combining the features of an all-terrain tire with the daily drivability of an all-season. The A/T and AT2 are an all terrain tires, with the latter showing improvements in wet weather and overall tread life.
The Firestone Tire and Rubber Company was founded in 1900 by Harvey Firestone in Akron, Ohio. Somewhat amazingly, Akron is also the birthplace of Goodyear Tires, General Tire and BFGoorich. Firestone tires grew dramatically as a company when in 1906 Henry Ford selected the company to supply his cars with tires. In 1988 Firestone was sold to Japanese tire manufacturer Bridgestone.
