Oh how I love that new tire smell!! ha ha

After 7 months of driving on the terribly worn out and weather checked crapyears that were on my F-150 when I got it I finally saved up enough pennies to put some new rubber on it. They are the Firestone destination AT's in the stock 275-65-18 size but they do look sweet. All the guys at work have these on there fullsize trucks and they swear by them so I thought id give them a shot. Im normally a BFG guy but they wanted almost $400 more for a set of BFG AT's.

Haha I know exactly what you mean. 35s are fun at all but for a daily driver where I like comfort and MPGs not ideal lol.

Nice choice! The Firestones are great tires.

Just slapped a set of Destination M/T's on my Super Duty this week!
