I think the Wilderness A/Ts were discontinued quite awhile ago. As for other Firestones, my work car (an '09 HHR) made it 72,000 miles on its stock Firestone Affinity tires before they changed them about a month ago, never had an issue and they still had decent tread left but were starting to get noisy. Suprisingly enough, they replaced those with Firestone Firehawks...lol...look cool but I'm sure with a 2.2L I'll never be able to use them like they are made for. They seem pretty decent though. Yeah, we put alot of miles on those poor cars. The '03 Ranger I just bought came with brand new Firestone Destination LE tires on it so we'll see how they do. Seem pretty decent on the road, nice and quiet. I'm not a hardcore offroader so I dont know how they do offroad but they will get tried in the snow this winter. I'm not gonna spend $600+ on new tires if it already has new ones on it. When I pickued up the truck they still had all the little nubs and excess rubber "*******". Hadn't been driven more than a mile or two since they were installed.
Now, on our Lincoln MKX (aka Ford Edge) the stock Continentals were horrible. They were nearly done at 32K miles, horrible tread wear and noise and my wife drives it 90% of the time and drives like a grandma. Thats one tire brand I would stay away from. Replaced them with Michelin Latitude (from TireRack.com) and its like a whole new ride again...great tires.
