Firestone Destination A/T

any one have any experance with these? my freind just got some on his tacoma and they look pretty decent and tirerack lists them as the number 1 rated A/T tire...

just wanna get an idea of the life of these and how well they do on a ranger...

just wanted to add that im not really looking for superior offroad traction as i will be on the road 99% of the time

seems to be the popular choice here but they were ranked 7th on their list and theyre almost to aggressive for me and my lack of offroading....

I've had problems with BFG'S before. They aren't the be all and end all and there are so many tires that look better on a mostly street driven truck. I don't miss mine and I have construction site mud all over my truck.

My dad has them on his '95 F150 4wd. I think their the old tread pattern though. He got them for free from Firestone back when they had that massive recall. Since my dad is a truck driver, his truck just sits. He put MAYBE 5000 miles on them since he got them. They look like new. LOL

From the times that we did have to go through mud during hunting season, they did very well. Quiet on the road also.

They are really decent tires for the money. I am a BFG guy, but you firestone's are my second choice. My Buddy runs a Firestone shop, and he says nothing but good about them. (Of course he is bias!) Consider Bridgestone dueller (sp) AT Revo's too. They have a great on road tread and an ok off road design. plus they have that uni-t construction which helps the tire maintain it's tread design even as it wears.

Good luck,
~HJ

i second that bull****! Man the BFGs are the main reason why i can attempt some of the crazy **** i do off-road. I'd like to see you give me an AT tire that can compare overall

mmm they do seem to be a good mid point between the tread on the stockers and a Procomp/BFG A/T. I assume you are looking for a tire that will igve decent traction(a little more agressive tread) but still good road wear, life, and quiet. It seems that these tires are just that. SO yeah get um if thats what your looking for. Plus they are probably alot less $$

My brother just put a set of the Destination Ats on his ranger this fall. So far he loves them in the snow and he says the ride is good.

I was thinking about these tires... comparing them with the Revo's... according to the tire rack, the reviews for the two are very very similiar. The big difference i see besides tread design is the price, the Destination AT's are quite a bit less than the Revo's. I've had Revo's on my last two trucks... and if it weren't for my love of them, id go with the Destination AT's.

Since, as you say, "im not really looking for superior offroad traction as i will be on the road 99% of the time", why buy an all-terrain tire? You'll get a worse ride, more noise from the tire, less traction, and less mpg, on pavement than you would with a good all-season tire.

honistly dont listen to tirerack there a bunch of crap most the time i have a 2wd XLT like yourself i was sceptical about the BFG A/T before i got them. I got them right before winter last year we got a 8"+ snow storm which before with my mudders would have got me stuck everywhere. i thought i'll give it a try i took my truck out all the driving i did plus unplowed parking lots a i never got stuck at all with these tires they EXTREMELY helped in snow i was so shocked. i am buying them agian just because they are so nice up here in the snow. i have no problems with them in rain eather feels like i am still driving on a road tire. and i dont know where people are getting a road noise from them i notice nothing with them no hum but then agian thats coming from owning a mud tire to a A/T tire to me there just a quiet as my moms BFG Rugged Trails on her Explorer 4 door


there tires the rugged trails are just as nice in snow suprisingly her truck is only a 2wd with a limited slip like my truck and never gets stuck also. but i think the wear on them is faster by far then my A/T's just some food for thought...

Alot of the noise from BFG A/T comes from lack of rotation.
